CAS Watercolour- Thoughts of You


 Welcome.  It's time for another card for the 
CAS Watercolour Challenge.


http://caswatercolour.blogspot.ca/




I began by placing my PB Trumpet Song stamp inside my Misti, coloured with markers, sprayed with water and stamped.  I like to start with the lightest colours first and add the darker ones as I repeat that process.  It gives such a wonderful watercolour effect.  

I did some watercolouring on the background with Salty Ocean Distress inks then inked up my Script stamp from Penny Black with the same ink, stamped off, then onto my paper.  By stamping off, the script is more faint and adds interest and depth to the background.

To finish my card off, I stamped the sentiment from the Special Thoughts set with black Memento ink.




Also adding my card to these challenges:

CASology- EMBRACE

Not Just Cards- ANYTHING GOES

Sunny Days Crafting- ANYTHING GOES



 I hope you will come and play along with us this month. 

Supplies:  stamps- Penny Black/ MISTI/ Memento markers/ ink- Distress/ paintbrush/ Mini Mister

These morning glories are so pretty, Karen! Love the shading and text in the background and the contrast of the black sentiment! Awesome card, my friend!

Very beautiful, and I enjoyed reading the stamping process using the Misti. It's a lovely floral background, so soft, yet still vibrant shades of color. Your water coloring is just splendid and the sentiment with this design makes a wonderful Thinking of you card...could be for many occasions too. TFS

Lovely colours and so well done. The text adds so much interest, and its font goes really well with the font of "thoughts" in your sentiment.
