CAS Watercolour October

Hello...

I hope your week is going well... We've got unusually warm and sunny weather today and it's very welcome...

My favourite challenge blog is celebrating their 2nd Birthday today 
May they continue to challenge us for a long time to come

This month's challenge is a colour challenge


The glorious colours of Autumn... Here's what I came up with


I started by stamping the image on white cardstock with black Versafine and then clear embossed it. Then I loosely painted the 3 colours over and around the image using Gansai Tambi watercolour paint


 Once dry, I die cut the leaf sprig both from the painted piece and a few times from scrap CS and glued them together before smooshing over with Versamark and clear embossing powder. It's quite hard to see the contrast of the glossy leaf against the BG.


I popped the leaf stem back into the negative space using foam dots after stamping and embossing the
 sentiment (from a Uniko set) and that's it.

I hope you enjoy your day, thanks so much for your visit

Till soon

~ Ros ~

What a stunning effect, fabulous water colouring and the colour mix is amazing. The dimension from the die cut leaves looks terrific along with the little bit of shine x One very special card x. Wet and wild in Scotland these past couple of days x.

I love these wintry branches and birds and using the lush Gansai Tambi paints in those gorgeous colours Ros, and finished beautifully with the wonderful gold embossed sentiment. x

Oooo I love this! Your colors are so vibrant. Not muddy at all like mine tend to be. Die-cutting the leaf and popping it up was a fantastic idea. It looks sooo cool.!

Papercraft Boutique said...

Wow, this is gorgeous, Ros! Your loose watercoloring is so artsy and the camouflage effect of the glossy die-cut leaf sprig adds so much interest! The flow from the bottom-left corner to the upper right-corner is a fantastic design element! I love it!

Brenda said...

What a beautiful card! I love how you did your background watercoloring, so pretty and fall looking for sure. I also love the scene you stamped and then I love the artist look of the leaves die cut out of the scene. Very cool! Thanks for playing in the Oct. challenge over at CAS Watercolour! Hugs, Brenda
