CAS Watercolour April 2020 Reminder - SPRING FLOWERS

Hello friends.  Just a friendly little reminder that there's still time to play along with us this month at the CAS Watercolour Challenge where our hostess Susan would like to see SPRING FLOWERS.


Being from West Michigan, what would Spring be without Tulips?!  (LOT's of Dutch people settled in West Michigan way back when, so Tulips have always been a part of our landscape here!)  I used another Impression Obsession stamp (E7754) to come up with this CAS card:


I stamped the image in Versafine Black Onyx and then heat embossed in clear and then used my Aqua Painter and Lemon Tart (PTI), Mustard Seed DI (TH), and Old Olive (SU!) inks to water color the tulips.  I used a Lil Inkers Stitched Rectangle Die to cut out my image and then added a strip of black cardstock and half of a Leafy Branch die cut (Pinkfresh Studios) behind the rectangle before adhering to a white card base.


There's quite a few beautiful cards already in the gallery, but we'd love to see YOU and your beautiful SPRING FLOWERS in our gallery too!  You can check it all out right HERE to play along.  This challenge is open till the 24th.

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

  2. Oh my goodness, Marcia! ANOTHER new-to-me tulip stamp? I am willing to bet I'll be asking to borrow this one - guess what will be the first thing I want to do when it's 'safe to go into the world' again!
    Stunning card, my friend!
