CAS Watercolour October 2017 - FALL LEAVES

Hello friends.  I am so honored to be Guest Designing for this month's challenge at CAS Watercolour


And what better month for me to Guest Design as they are looking for FALL LEAVES, and as you can probably already tell from my blog design, I love leaves!!


And here is what I came up with:


 I used my Gansai Tambi watercolours in reds, oranges, & yellows for my background and while still wet, I sprinkled some Crimson Brusho's to add a little more movement.  Once dry I added a die cut leaf (PTI's - Enclosed: Leaf Stamp Set) that I partially embossed with copper, and then framed with a white stitched die cut frame.  I attached this to a white card base and then added a sentiment banner from Clearly Besotted's Autumn Flowers.


For this challenge I watercoloured, embossed, die cut, and stamped.

You have until the 24th to play along with this challenge, so break out those leaf stamps and dies and play along with us!  You can find all kinds of BEAUTIFUL inspiration from the DT right HERE.

Another incentive to play along this month is that CAS Watercolour is celebrating their 1st Birthday, and that means PRIZES my friends.  In fact there will be 2 prizes...one for the challenge winner and one for a random draw!


Hope I've convinced you to play along this month!  Have fun and can't wait to see YOU in the gallery!



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