Springtime- CAS Watercolour Challenge

I can't believe it's March already and that Spring is on our doorstep...can't wait.

So that means it's time for another challenge at the 
Great theme this month....Spring!

http://caswatercolour.blogspot.com/2017/03/cas-watercolour-march-challenge.html


Playing with a new stamp for me from Technique Tuesday called Cosmos.
I reminded me of poppies so I decided to colour them red.
 I placed the stamp inside my Misti, stamped then heat embossed with white powder.
I added a touch of colour to the flowers using my Zig markers then used a paintbrush to paint them in. It is so easy to get a watercoloured look using them.
Next, I die-cut the window using the Rectangle Peek a Boo die from MFT.  The stitched edges add such interest and framed out the image so well.
Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from Mama Elephant using my Misti again.
