Peaceful Dove for CAS Watercolour

I've had so much fun using salt with watercolor.

Here's another card using a salted background.

This one uses a NBUS dove die that's been waiting for use for
way too long!


I used a piece of watercolor background from this post.

Our CAS Watercolour Challenge this month is

But it must have watercolour!

The Design Team and our Guest Designer, Hideko (Papercraft Boutique)
have done some awesome inspiration pieces.
I hope you'll check them out then join in.

Since I have stamping, watercolor, salt, dry embossing and die cuts,
I'll add this over at CAS Mix Up too.


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

I love this stunning salted watercoloured background, Bonnie! The white dove and the gold twig pop against the beautiful dreamy blue sky! The stitched hexagon frame gives interest to the rectangle card panel too. Hideko xx

A beautiful background Bonnie and the salt has given it a lovely pattern. The pretty dove goes perfectly over the top of the hexagons too, and love the falling snow embossed background. I haven't tried using salt yet so must definitely give it a go. x

What a beautiful background, Bonnie! Don't think I've ever done a watercolor background that pretty. Love it on that wonderful retired embossing folder.

This is totally my kind of card - so much so that it's very similar to my DT reminder card for CAS Mix Up!!! Good thing I made it for the other challenge! I love yours with the beautiful watercoloured background, the great frame, and the embossed background.
