CAS Watercolour Nov. 2018 Reminder Post

Hello friends.  Just a friendly reminder that you have just over a week to play along with us at CAS Watercolour this month.



We're looking for Christmas Florals and Greenery (NO tree's please!) on your CAS cards this month, so join in and play along with us!

I'm sharing a card today that uses Altenew's Festive Poinsettia stamp that my friend Michele let me stamp a few of to play with and came up with this:



It was a perfect image for me to get my Zigs out and use to color up this beauty!  I used yellow, orange, and red for the flower leaves, and a couple shades of green for the leaves and stems.



My Aqua Painter also helped me with moving and blending the color together a bit.  I did a little bit of ink splattering with black and then added my sentiment from Altenew's Blessings stamp set.  I also used a Gina Marie Designs Wonky Stitched die around the edges of my panel and then adhered to a white card base.  Just a couple iridescent sequins finished off my card.

We would love to see you in the gallery and help you get those Christmas cards done, so hop on over and see all the lovely inspiration we have for you from the DT and our special guest designer Maura this month, and then play along.  You can find everything right HERE


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