CAS Watercolour Jan. 2020 - COOL COLORS

Hello friends.  Just a friendly reminder that there's still time to play along with the COOL COLORS challenge at CAS Watercolour.


Bonnie is hosting this month's challenge and she would like to see you use COOL COLORS on your CAS water color cards.  If you're wondering what colors are considered cool, take a look:

                                    

And here's what I came up using some of those colors and a Serendipity Stamp (540HUM Sled)...


I stamped my image in black ink and then embossed with clear before water coloring with Distress Inks.  (Weather Wood, Faded Jeans, Stormy Sky, Dusty Concord, & Peeled Paint)  I did use a touch of Sahara Sand ink to color the sled, even though I know it's not a cool color...I just couldn't bring myself to make the sled blue, green, or purple!  I used a Spellbinders oval die to make a frame for my piece, and then added a popped up sentiment banner using Altenew's Best Sentiments.

This challenge is open till the 24th, so check it all out HERE and play along...we'd love to see YOU in the gallery!!

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

  1. What a sweet and peaceful scene!! I remember sleds like that. We used to go to the Golf Course because they had the BEST sliding hills!! I grew up in the "snow belt" in upstate New York and our sleds got a LOT of use!! : )

    Warm (((Hugs)))

  7. I LOVE how you've watercoloured this image, Marcia! I have this stamp but have not made a card yet. You've inspired me to pull it out! The colours are so calm and soothing. And I love the oval framing with the black sentiment banner. Everything works perfectly together. Great design, my friend! xx

  18. Such a beautiful and peaceful winter scene you created, Marcia! I love your watercoloring, especially with all those muted soft shades. Adding a bit of Sahara Sand turned out so well. It looks so natural and just fits with other cool colors. I do love this card!!
