Addicted to CAS Challenge #14 - Circle(s)

Greetings, dear crafting friends, there is a new codeword at Addicted to CAS, selected by the extraordinarily talented Marie, who is also our host for this two week challenge.

Our generous sponsor is Paper Makeup Stamps who will be offering a prize to our CAS Perfectionist.


"Life isn't a matter of milestones, but of moments"

I've been playing with making watercolour backgrounds using an acrylic block, SU! markers and water mister. Sometimes it's nice to have a little time to experiment so I made several and chose this one to stamp some images and words from the Life set by PTI. 

Please do be sure to check out the fabulous DT cards on the ATCAS blog and we hope you've been inspired to join in the fun. Looking forward to seeing your circles!


This is also for entry in Inkspirational Challenge #22 - Anything Goes and Word Art Wednesday where you're welcome to use the Scripture verse provided or anything goes as long as it's family-friendly and includes an uplifting or encouraging sentiment. The Scripture verse this week is:

"In the fear of the LORD is strong confidence, and His children shall have a place of refuge" (Proverbs 4:26)

Hope you have a lovely weekend with lots of smiles! :)

I love that you put your watercoloured background behind the window! I've tried that technique before but this way you can't even tell you used a block. I love it!!! Beautiful scene with the flowers too.
