CAS Watercolour May 2017 - Flowers

Hello friends.  Playing along with this months CAS Watercolour challenge, where FLOWERS are the subject.

It seems like everyone in blogland lately is using the Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors, so I finally broke down and purchased them, and then tried them out on a simple card using Altenew's Painted Poppy set.

I heat embossed the flower, stem, and leaf in black and then watercolored them, and I have to say I really like the way these watercolors go on!  Very smooth, and bright and vibrant colors!  I still like my Peerless watercolors too, but I think there's room for both in my life!  After my watercoloring was dry, I added my sentiment from WPlus9's Hand Lettered: Hello (LOVE this set!!), and then because I thought it needed just a little something extra, I added just a lightly stamped partial background using a retired SU! background stamp called En Francais with Smoky Slate ink.  Added a few Rainstones (PTI) to finish it off and I really like how this came out!  For this card I watercolored, die cut, embossed, & stamped.

You have till the 24th to play along with this months challenge, and there is LOTS of GORGEOUS inspiration to get you started!  You can check it all out right HERE.

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