CAS Watercolour December 2016

Hello friends.  Playing along with the CAS Watercolour challenge today, where they are asking us to use the watercolour resist technique.


The watercolour resist is a fun technique, but the real challenge for me is to keep the card CAS!  Loll and the DT members always make this part of the challenge look so easy, but I admit I struggle with that part!  I just want to fill the whole card up...grrrr!  But anyway, after playing around for awhile, I think I came up with a CAS card using PTI's What The Doodle: Snowflake set.  Take a look:

  

I started by embossing in white SU!'s En Francais background stamp on a piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock and then watercolored it using Peerless Sky Blue watercolor.  For the double snowflakes, I also embossed those in white and then used water and my Zig markers to color them up.  Really love the way these colors blended together!!  I mounted my background piece to a layer of black and then layered that to a white card base.  The snowflakes were pop dotted and then I added the sentiment, with the word "wonderful" embossed in white on a black strip of cs.  It's different than most of my cards, but I think I like it!  And it's my first card to put away for next years stash, as I mailed out all my cards this week...YEAH!!  :0)

There's still time to play along with this challenge, so make sure you check out all the beautiful inspiration from Loll and the DT team right HERE and then play along.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!  :0)
