A Bouquet of Thanks for CAS Mix Up

Hello, my friends.

We're doing watercolor wash at CAS Mix Up.


This stamp set was a birthday present from my dear friend, Loll.

After stamping and heat embossing, I painted with Gansai Tambi watercolors.

For the wash, I pulled color from the flowers and stems adding more color as needed.

Finally, I added a light splatter with Deep Violet.

There's still time to join in at
CAS Mix Up
I used stamping, heat embossing, watercolor, watercolor wash and splatter.


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Beautiful card Bonnie. I guess I took the summer off from challenges and just submitted some cards to the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I am ready to get back to watercolor. :) Barb

Bonnie this is So beautiful! Love the soft wash in the background. I'm fascinated by watercoloring, something I struggle with. You did a superb job on this!

Beautiful card, Bonnie! Love the purple and green...soft yet rich look. And the wash background with the splatters sets off the image so well. As always, you hit a home run with water coloring.

Elegant soft watercolour wash, Bonnie! I just wondered if your Gansai Tambi paints are the same as mine - your colors are so beautiful. ;-P Hideko

Great watercolor painting, Bonnie. I love the blurred background, which makes the flowers look as if they emerged from the mist. I also love the color scheme of the card. I'm sure the picture does not reflect all the beautiful aspects of the card. Loll said that the card actually looks even more beautiful, and I think the same.
Hugs,
