Fall Flower for CAS Watercolour

Hello there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

It's time for a new challenge at
CAS Watercolour

This is a special month for our challenge.
And we have Prizes!

I'm hosting the challenge this month and I chose
Nice Fall Colors!

One of my dear friends sent me some die cuts a while ago.

I thought this one looked like a fall flower so I colored it in orange and green
and did the frame in brown using drops of re-inker in a palette and my water brush.

I added a bit of VersaMarker at the base of the bloom and heat embossed
with gold powder.   I heat embossed the sentiment too.

Some clear Wink of Stella makes this bloom shimmer in the light.

The background is a from some cardstock that another dear friend gave me.
It has wonderful texture.

I am blessed with wonderful friends!

Thank you to both of you.

The CAS Watercolour Design Team along with our fabulous Guest Designer, Brenda,
have some awesome inspiration cards to show you.

I hope we'll see your beautiful cards in the CAS Watercolour Gallery!
(Don't forget to check out the prizes.)

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Lovely card, Bonnie. The colours are, indeed, autumnal and I like the touch of embossed gold on the flower and greeting. xx

Brenda said...

Beautiful card Bonnie, I love that die, such a cool one. Your challenge was so much fun and I had fun creating my card. Love these colors together, they are such great fall colors. Hope it is feeling fall where you are my friend. Not so much here, but I'm ok with that!!! First time ever I think that we have had to run the ac in Oct. I'm not complaining, only about the rain. lol Hugs, Brenda

This is just the sweetest card, Bonnie!! LOVE that adorable die-cut and it looks fabulous with the saturated colours from re-inkers. The gold embossing adds some lovely sparkle and shine! Crafting friends really are the BEST! xx

This is really such a bright and beautiful flower Bonnies and I love the contrast with the brown frame, and that touch of gold on the flower really shines out and a lovely gold embossed sentiment too. Congratulations on your second birthday over at the challenge, I can't believe how quickly that time has passed, and thank you for the fabulous prizes on offer. x

Congratulations to you, Loll, and the DT on the second birthday of CAS Watercolour! Thank you so much for the fun and inspiring challenge every month!
This is such a sweet card, Bonnie! I love the dainty flower in the very thin frame. The thin script sentiment ties in perfectly to the style of the flower and the textured card base is a very classy choice!

I'm extremely fond of this style, one I cannot do. Love the clean, simplicity of it and love the fall colors. I tend to overdo it for CAS. Beautiful card!

Perfect use of the challenge colors, Bonnie. I love the style of the flower and its gold center.

This is so precious, I adore what you did with this tiny die-cut. It really packs a punch! The complimentary gold adds so much richness to this superb CAS card.
I have got to get those dainty script sentiments.
Congrats to you and Loll for this second anniversary, you gals ROCK! xx

Your card is so lovely in its simplicity. Beautiful watercolouring and I’m sure the sparkle is stunning IRL. This is a tough combo for me, so I hope I can come up with something. xx
