Summertime for CAS Watercolour

Hello, my friends.

It's time for the launch of a new challenge at
CAS Watercolour.

This month's challenge is

Since Father's Day is this month, I thought this was appropriate for this challenge.

I took a full sheet of watercolor paper and stamped the Wondrous leaves 
randomly around the whole piece.  
Then I sprayed it with water and let the color move.

Messy and fun!

The tag is cut from that piece.

I hope you'll help us celebrate summer at
CAS Watercolour

The design team and our Guest Designers have lots of inspiration for you.
We have two Guest Designers this month, LeAnne and Ksenija
I hope you'll check them out.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

What a fantastic way to create your watercoloured, leafy background. I have to try this!! :) I love the organic look of the watercolouring which is perfect with the corrugated bird. Amazing design, my friend. xx

What a cool technique and artsy background, Bonnie! Your bird is just awesome with all that texture. The added paint just makes him! I definitely want to try this!

I love this Bonnie!! It is manly, but still speaks to the soft side of a man. The colors you used are so pretty and masculine and I love your bird cut out of the cool paper. The tag shape is awesome too! Hugs, Brenda

What a perfect masculine card, Bonnie! Love the bird done out of the corrugated card and with the bit of gesso to give it definition. The subtle leaf design is a beautiful background.

But amasing watercolor background !!! I love how you added delicate leaf silhouettes on it. It looks as though the bird was sitting on a branch among the thicket of foliage. Great card !!
