CAS Watercolour October 2017 Reminder

Hello friends.  Just a reminder that you have until the 24th to play along with this month's CAS Watercolour challenge.


It's so much fun to be playing alongside all the talented designers this month as a Guest Designer!!


And here's what I came up with for this reminder post:


I had a brand new die from Poppystamps to play with...Gentle Leaf Collage.  I die cut the leaf image and then on a separate piece of watercolour cardstock, I used my Gansai Tambi watercolours in reds, oranges, and pinks, and just a tiny bit of purple.  Once dry, I adhered this layer to my card base, and then pop dotted the die cut leaf layer over the top of that.  I added an embossed sentiment banner using PTI's Ways To Say: Thinking Of You.  The small pink enamel dot added another pop of color to this CAS card.


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

Don't forget this challenge is open till the 24th, and also that this is CAS Watercolours 1st Birthday, and 2 prizes are up for grabs...one for the challenge winner and one random draw lucky winner.


You can check out all the lovely cards from the DT for inspiration right HERE and then play along.  We'll look forward to seeing you in the gallery!!


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