Thankful for CAS Watercolour

Hello friends. Welcome to my blog.

Today I'm reminding you that there's still time to join in at CAS Watercolour where
we're celebrating our 2nd birthday with prizes!

I used my MISTI to ink this stamp with markers and stamp. 
Then moved the color with a water brush.

I continued stamping until I was happy with the colors, adding a
darker orange and brown here and there on the pumpkins.

When I was finished with the stamping, I swiped some Vintage Photo on my
palette and picked up color with the water brush to add a light wash.

The sentiment was die cut three times from brown cardstock and stacked
for dimension.

These colors are perfect for fall cards.

The Design Team along with our fabulous Guest Designer, Brenda
have some beautiful samples to inspire you!

I hope you'll join us at CAS Watercolour
Challenge is open until the 24th.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Beautiful watercolour, my friend! You are an expert at this technique. Your pumpkins are so bright with lots of dimension from your shading. Beautiful fall scene for Thanksgiving! xx

FABULOUS card Bonnie! I love that PB image but have only inked it up once...I struggled to get it to look like pumpkins when I was done, but you have done it perfectly!! Maybe I'll have to try again... But anyway, your card turned out just lovely and this was a fun, FUN challenge this month!! :0)

I like the muted effect of these pumpkins images, nicely done!

Those pumpkins look just like the ones growing in the garden down at the barn where I volunteer - the leaves, stems, and tendrils are dying off on the ground and the pumpkins are turning brilliant orange. Such a perfect image of autumn. Your watercolouring is fabulous.
