CAS Watercolour Reminder - Maple Leaf

Hello friends.  Just a reminder that the October CAS Watercolour Challenge is still open for another week, so dig out those Maple Leaf stamps, dies, or stencils and come play along with us!


This month we are also celebrating our 3rd Birthday, so come play along for the chance to win one of the two SSS $25 gift cards!


I have another Twofer for you today using a very small Maple leaf stamp from Clearly Besotted's Autumn Flowers stamp set.


I used 3 Gina K ink cubes (Wild Wisteria, Red Velvet, & Jelly Bean Green) to ink up the stamp and then spritzing with water before pressing into a strip of white cardstock.  Before each one dried, I used my Aqua Painter to blend the colors together a bit more.  Once dry, I added it to a white card base along with a thin strip of Wild Wisteria cs and then stamped my sentiment (PTI) above the thin strip.  Very CAS and I love the combination of the colors together!


This card is very similar but uses more traditional Fall colors for my Maple leaves.  I also added one of the larger Maple Leaves from the same stamp set (Autumn Flowers) and then a thin strip of Pumpkin Pie and gold mirror cardstock.  This sentiment is also from PTI.

Make sure you check out all the beautiful inspiration from the DT and our Special Guest Ros, and then play along with us right HERE.  Remember to keep your card CAS, use a Maple Leaf, and Water Coloring.  Don't forget that we're celebrating our 3rd Birthday too, and that we have prizes to win, so come join in...can't wait to see YOU in the gallery!!

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

  2. Two very different but equally beautiful looks, Marcia! I love the unexpected colors of the first card and the more traditional colors of the second color are spot on. Love the bit of foil and the larger leaf too!

  7. Out-of-the-box fantastic, Marcia, to use the colors on the first card. The second is similar to ones I've done and probably should do again so I can enter.
