CAS Watercolour May 2020 - Night Sky

Hello friends.  It's time for a new challenge here at CAS Watercolour and Jenny is our hostess this month and she is looking for water colored NIGHT SKIES on our cards.


I admit this challenge stumped me for a bit, until I thought of my Brusho Colours and Winter...and then it all came together with this:


I am absolutely in LOVE with the way this came out!  I started with a piece of TH water color cardstock, and then used mostly Cobalt Blue Brusho and just a bit of Purple Brusho and Lamp Black Color Burst.  Once it was dry I splattered just a bit of Copic Opaque White to resemble falling snow.  I added a die cut tree border from Penny Black and then stamped my sentiment in Night of Navy ink using Penny Blacks Yuletide Wishes stamp set.  Such a simple card really, but I think it really packs a punch! 

Make sure you check out all the FABULOUS inspiration from the DT and our special GD this month and then play along with us right HERE.  Remember to keep your card CAS, use WATER COLORING, and have FUN!  We can't wait to see what YOU come up with in our gallery!  This challenge is open till the 24th.

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