Making a Splash for CAS Watercolour

Hello friends. I hope you're having a good day!

It's time for a new challenge at
CAS Watercolour.
Nancy is our host this month and she chose

This is such an easy and fun technique!

Our Design Team and fabulous Guest Designer Marcia (Marcia K. Designs)
have some beautiful splash cards to inspire you.

Loll has done a video that you might want to check out if you haven't already.

I used some Peacock Feathers Distress ink on my craft mat, spritzed it,
and pounced my mixed media paper into the wet ink to splash the color
onto the paper.

Then I added some die cuts that I colored by sponging color on them
with Distress Oxide inks then spritzing with water.

The flowers are winked with clear Wink of Stella
but the camera didn't want to show you that.
They are very shimmery though.

Since I colored my die cuts, I'll add this to the gallery at


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

A great combination of colors. I love to mix purple and blue watercolors. It always gives such beautiful intermediate colors. Beautiful card, the flower popping out of the window is amazing. Next beautiful card, Bonnie!

TFS the video link. Love the way your purple flowers are slightly outside this pretty stitched window (I have the die, and it's a NBUS). The watercolor sky is lovely behind the vivid flowers. TFS & Hugs

I love the intensity of the color of your die cut flowers! How fabulous that looks against your background! Awesome color choices, Bonnie!

I love your big and dynamic splashes in the sky/background, Bonnie! The flowers are so pretty with the beautiful shades of purple. It's a nice touch that you placed the taller flower a little bit outside the window. Hideko xx

Beautiful papery purple blooms against your lovely blue background Bonnie!

What a lovely bouquet for someone to receive. I just love the flowers peaking out from the frame.
