Happy Birthday Bonnie- CAS Watercolour Challenge

What a fun month we have had at the 

We are celebrating another wonderful friend's birthday.
Happy Birthday to Bonnie

Our theme is Bouquet of Flowers; add one to your watercoloured card.

This month we also welcome our talented guest Leslie from Running With Scissors.

So onto my card details.
I began with a piece of plastic kitchen wrap (leaving all the folds and wrinkled areas on it) and rubbed some Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers directly over that.
I gave it a spritz of water to blend, then pressed my paper into the wet ink.  It left behind such a pretty design on my paper and was so quick and easy to do.
Next, using the new Stitched Circle die from PB, I cut a circle in the centre of my card front.  I mounted that over my inked background and added a few die-cut wildflowers.
I stamped the sentiment then glued it onto a piece of light green, then onto a plain white card base.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

The inked cling wrap onto which you have pressed the paper has left such a great pattern on the background Karen, and the PB Stitched Circle aperture shows it off beautifully, also the white wild flowers emerging from it look so pretty, and the lovely blue coloured sentiment goes perfectly. x

There you are with your beautiful blues and greens -- my favorite color combo for watercolor or blended backgrounds. A lovely card, Karen! We've been away camping so I'm just now able to check in. I could do Instagram on my phone, but not blogs. I sure did get behind!
