CAS Watercolour- Text Me

 What an exciting day!
I am thrilled to announce that I am the newest team member of the CAS Watercolour Blog!



 I think we all love the look of watercolouring which is so easy with the help of all the wonderful stamps we have in our collections.

This month the theme at the CAS Watercolour Blog is:

So onto my card.  
I began by getting out my MISTI and placing my PB flower stamp into it.  I simply coloured with Memento markers, sprayed with water and pressed onto my heavy weight cardstock.
I sponged Salty Ocean Distress inks around my image, then using a PB script stamp, I randomly stamped with Versamark ink and white heat embossed.  
To add just a bit of extra interest, I stenciled randomly using a piece of drywall tape with more of the ink.
I stamped the sentiment from Rubbernecker with black Memento ink.



Adding my card to these challenges:

This PB flower is one I have long admired Karen, and I love that colour blue which makes the white embossing stand out beautifully, and I love that extra subtle bit of stencilling in the background too. x

Karen, I am so glad you are on the team with me. I learn so much from you! This is a truly gorgeous card - blue is my favourite colour and you do blue so well! Perfect random text stamping - and I love the idea of heat embossing it to add some texture.

Congratulations on being on the CAS Watercolor team, Karen. They knew what they were doing when they picked you. It fascinates me how you can 'sponge around' an image without smearing and stamp over so precisely. Beautiful card as always.
