CAS Watercolour June 2018 Reminder - OCEAN

Hello friends.  Just a friendly reminder that there's still time to play along with us at CAS Watercolour.  We're looking for OCEAN themed cards and you have until the 24th to enter the challenge.


I have a pretty simple card to share with you today, but because I used Lindy's Magicals it really packs a punch!


I used the Tibetan Poppy Teal color powder with water to create my "ocean" and Cattail Copper Brown for the Seahorse that I cut with a Gina Marie Designs die.


I framed out my "ocean" using a couple rounded square dies (Gina Marie Designs) and stacked 3 of them together for some depth.  The sea horse is pop dotted at the side and then I finished off the card with a whimsical sentiment from PTI's Keep Swimming set.  A very simple card but it just didn't need anything else, so I left it like it was.  It also shimmers like crazy in real life because of the Lindy's Magicals!

You can check out what the rest of the DT came up with and our Guest Designer Robyn Oliver too, for more inspiration right HERE, and then play along with us.  We'd love to see your work in the gallery!!

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

  1. Yes I agree with you, when you use these Lindy Magicals they really don't need much else as they are so very beautiful and shimmery and wonderful. Great colour of the tibetan poppy teal and the little seahorse looks adorable. The layering of the frame really draws your eyes into that marvellous background. Wonderful sentiment too x

  5. LOVE the beautiful, deep, and shimmery colour of your ocean Marcia. Aren't Lindy's the best. I seem to be pulling them out all the time ... so fun to play with! And your seahorse is gorgeous with the cattail copper brown. So many different pigments within each colour. Gorgeous design! xx

  9. Marcia, your card is fantastic... those Magical powders create such depth and vibrancy (are they like Brushos), nicely framed (I'm liking that rounded die) and finished with your beautiful seahorse.
