CAS Watercolour

Today I have what I think is a truly CAS card to share with you. I have decided that I need to practice my watercolour skills this year as I have an ambition to get much better at it, so here is my second practice. It is very simple but you have to start somewhere!

Here is my card:

I started by stamping the flower with antique linen distress ink onto a card base of cold pressed watercolour paper. I then coloured it with my Zig clean Colour Real Brush pens. Once it was dry I masked the flower and lightly splattered red and green watercolour over the card front. Once that was dry, I put the card back in my Misti and stamped it with versa mark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.

You can see the splatters and the embossing better in this close up:

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today, I really appreciate it.
