CAS Watercolour May 2018 - RAINBOW

Hello friends.  We have a FUN challenge for you this month at CAS Watercolour...we'd like to see a RAINBOW on your card!  It doesn't have to be literally a RAINBOW, but we'd love to see all the colors of a RAINBOW on your card.  Just remember ROYGBIV (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, & Violet) and you'll be on your way!  Remember also that you need to include some form of watercolouring and that your card be CAS!


I started by using some of my ink cubes and pressing them onto an acrylic block, and then used my Aqua Painter to add water and then make a rainbow.


I should have snapped a photo before I did my die cutting, but you can still get the general idea of how I started my card.  The die I used was SSS's Birthday Circle.


I used PTI's Shape Shifters: Circle die to die cut my circle that I added my rainbow sentiment and cupcake to.  The frosting on the cupcake looked a little plain, so I added my 3 year old granddaughter's favorite cupcake topping...SPRINKLES!  These little pieces were leftovers from the die cut letters that spelled out Happy Birthday...good use of scraps, eh??!!  :0)


I finished off my card with a simple black banner that I embossed with white and an enamel dot, and then added some black & white bakers twine to the top.  Easy peasy and ALL the colors of the RAINBOW!!

We can't wait to see what you come up with this month using RAINBOW colors!  The DT has some absolutely FABULOUS ideas to inspire you, so check it all out right HERE and then play along with us!!

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

  14. What a clever way to create a rainbow background for your Brithday Circle die, Marcia! (And thanks for the creative process photo - it shows how you did it instantly.) The PTI's outer circle die is a great choice. It looks like a coordinating die for the SSS' die. I love the sprinkles you added. They make this card look even more fun and delightful! Hideko xx
