CAS Watercolour August 2019 - Reminder Post

Hello friends.  Just a friendly reminder that the CAS Watercolour Challenge is open till the 24th, so you have about a week left to join in the COLORFUL BUTTERFLY fun!


For my 1st card I water colored some rainbow stripes on water color cardstock and then die cut with a SSS Butterfly Drift die to come up with this simple card...


I added PTI's Pierced Feature Frame Dies in white to a white card base, and then added my colorful butterflies over the top of the base and frame.  My sentiment is from Mama Elephant's Butterfly Kisses and I finished with a few clear sequins.


My negative piece from the die cut for the 1st card was just too pretty to throw away, so I added it to a white card base and then die cut the butterflies out again in just plain white cardstock.  I popped up a few of the butterfly wings and added colorful enamel dots to the centers of each butterfly.  A thin strip of black cardstock and a sentiment from The Greetery's Sentiment Suite: Thinking of You.

We can't wait for more of you to play along, so if you need more inspiration, check out all the BEAUTIFUL cards from the DT and our special GD Amy, and then play along right HERE.  Remember to keep your cards CAS and to use some form of  Watercolouring.  This challenge is open till the 24th.

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