CAS Watercolour guest designer


I'm delighted to be February guest designer at CAS Watercolour Challenge and here's what I made. 


I mixed Brushos with water, created a background and used a stencil to watercolour the little hearts. The die-cut sentiment has glimmer paste for a little bit of sparkle.

Also playing along at (four):
 Happy Little Stampers Watercolour Challenge - Anything Goes w/optional twist of "Heart"
Just Add Ink -  Romance
Uniko - Something Old, Something New w/optional twist of Love
(something old: love you die-cuts, new: glimmer paste)
Watercooler Wednesday - Anything Goes

Congratulations on your GD spot Sue and I adore your pretty hearts with the glittery silver die cut sentiment over the top and the wash of pink behind the hearts and the little sequins is just perfect to finish. x

Love how you've utilized the stencil, brushos and watercolouring to create this unique and beautiful "love" image. I like the quirkiness of the painted hearts they almost look like little butterflies. So pretty. Thanks so much Sue for joining us at the Watercooler Wednesday "Anything Goes" challenge this week and sharing your talents.

A very pretty card, Sue. The lovely, soft brusho watercolour background allows your stencilled hearts to look as though they are floating across the card. I must try adding glimmer paste to some die cuts - a great effect! Thanks so much or joining our "Anything Goes Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week. Congratulations on your GD spot!
