CAS Mix Up - September 2017

Hello friends.  Playing along with this month's CAS Mix Up challenge, where they are looking for a Watercolour Wash, which is a semi-transparent layer of color.

Here's what I came up with:

I did a real light wash of orange with my Gansai Tambi water colors and when that was dry I stamped my pumpkin image from Impression Obsession (D19277) in Versafine Onyx Black ink.  To add a little bit of framing I used PTI's Mix & Mat: Flourish Die and then added my embossed sentiment banner from PTI's Sunflower Harvest set.  Definitely CAS and as Darnell would say: QACAS!!  :0)

So for this challenge I watercoloured, stamped, die cut, and embossed.

There is still LOTS of time to play along with this challenge (Sept. 24), so check out all the beautiful inspiration from the DT and all the players in the gallery, and then play along right HERE.

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