Charming for CAS Watercolour

Hello, dear friends.

It's time for a new challenge at CAS Watercolour


This month's challenge is....
Be sure your card is CAS And has watercolour

I stamped this NBUS Penny Black stamp with VersaMark on Mixed Media paper
and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

My Zigs were feeling neglected so I brushed some color on the base of the flowers then
used my waterbrush to move the color around.

I added some more color with brushstrokes from the base to add
some visual texture.

Finally, I pulled some of the color out and around the flowers and splattered it all.

The image is on foam.

Our Design Team has some really pretty birthday watercolours to share with you
along with our very talented Guest Designer, Birgit (Rapport fran ett skrivbord)

I hope to see your birthday cards over at
CAS Watercolour!

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

This is so soft and delicate, Bonnie. Gorgeous watercoloured flowers. Great work with your zigs. I love how you've pulled the colour outside of the embossing and added the details with the fine tip of the zig. Really makes these flowers look 3-D. xx

This is wonderful piece of watercolouring Bonnie and the flower looks so delicate and pretty and love the background shading too. I see you have been published in the January issue of Craft Stamper and look forward to seeing that in due course. x
