CAS Watercolour - Hello There


CAS Watercolour October Challenge is celebrating their First Birthday ... a big congratulations. In celebration our card is to include watercolor and leaves

For my card the watercolor panel was created using a combination of Distress Dye (Candied Apple and Carved Pumpkin) and Distress Oxide (Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Worn Lipstick) Inks. The process was smooshing, water spraying, air drying and repeating these steps until I liked the result. A stitched die-cut frame was added for dimension and interest. The leaf was die-cut from cork. The sentiment matches the cork color and was achieved by using Versamark and Distress Vintage Photo inks and heat embossing with clear EP.

Hope you're having a wonderful day.  Thank you for visiting and commenting ... always appreciate your feedback.
