CAS Watercolour Challenge September

Good morning!

This month I'm thrilled to be Guesting again at 


One of my favourite places to play and this month the theme is Tree


As always the team have amazing creations to inspire you - Go take a look

I love this time of year when the trees change colour, though I don't think fir trees would ever be the colours I decided to use... Lol!


I watercoloured a background using Gansai Tambi paints and cut the 'hello' into it 


Then I used my Cameo to cut out some trees but here I am just using the negative piece which I die cut a stitched edge onto before placing over the painted BG


There is some gold paint splatter on there too but it's a little hard to see...

We are really looking forward to seeing your beautiful CAS watercolour creations... I do hope you'll join us

Have fun!

They may not be realistic looking colored fir trees, but they are absolutely GORGEOUS Ros!! Love the colors and the little gold specks too, and the die cut "hello" looks fantastic nestled into the trees! Lovely, lovely card my friend and so glad you're playing along with us this month!! :0)

Personally I LOVE the colors and think this would make a FAB Christmas card!

Tracy said...

Now Ros, don't you remember that those trees are from that wonderful whimsy forest just down the way from your house. LOL The colors are lovely and I like the popped up sentiment.

My Paper Epiphany said...

I’d love to see fir trees in these colours! Your card is stunning and I love how you added the sentiment. So happy to have you as our guest designer:)

Christine Alexander said...

Ros those colours are gorgeous, I love the mix of purple orange and blue. Simply stunning :)

Gorgeous Fall colors, Ros. I bet there are a few fir trees out there that would love to change colors in the Fall. Besides, it is the artists creative license that says, whatever suits your fancy:-) I think your trees and die cut hello are Gorgeous against all the white background. TFS and congratulations on being chosen the Guest Designer. Hugs...

Congratulations on the Guest Designer spot at CAS Watercolour, Ros!
This is so pretty and creative! I love the soft lovely background colors of Gansai Tambi. You have such a great taste in colors. And what a great and unique idea to partially die cut the sentiment to pop up. Using the negative of the front panel is a great idea too. Hideko xx

Loll said...

Very beautiful and creative Ros! I love the colours of your trees ... and so cool how you die-cut the hello into the mix. Thanks so much for being our Guest Designer this month at CAS Watercolour! xx

Greta said...

Congrats! You truly are the perfect GD for the challenge, Ros! Totally love this creative & gorgeous card--fabulous colors & design!

Kathy Krug said...

You always have the prettiest colored backgrounds for your designs. As I have said before you are a master of CAS. Just lovely.

Leslie Miller said...

Your very creative thinking is showing with the trees negative framing the "hello" like that. Also, the colors are beautiful and I can clearly see the gold splatters, especially when clicking for a close up. I'm all for artistic license. A stunning piece, Ros. Congratulations on your guest spot!

Julia Aston said...

what a creative design idea to die cut the stand up word on your beautifully colored trees! I'll have to look through my dies now to see if I have dies cut on a line!!

Pat said...

I love the mix of bright colours you have used behind the negative tree shapes Ros, and the design of the sentiment standing away from the background looks great! This is such an elegant design. x

Bonnie said...

What lovely trees, Ros! I love the colors and the cut hello over them! Thanks so much for joining our team as Guest Designer this month at CAS Watercolour! Always a pleasure!

Darnell said...

Congrats on another Guest Design gig, Ros! You always inspire! This card is sensational!! Hugs, Darnell

Maria said...

Oh, so gorgeous with the lovely painted trees! And, how clever for the cut out sentiment! Fab card, Ros...love it!!

Barbara said...

As I'm catching up as usual I have already read your next post... wondering what you should do for Christmas cards. I think this could be one - the trees could be snow covered, "hello" can be replaced with something else... As for this card: it's so beautiful! I love the ink blending!

Pauline said...

Ros, this is gorgeous! Love your background colours you used for the trees, and love the pop up Hello! You are so creative. Congrats on being the Guest Designer this month!

Karen Dunbrook said...

This is inspiring Ros!!!!! I wish I could dig all those craft supply out asap, but nah... I am still working on the bedroom, pantry and kitchen, it seems forever to unpack!

Susan said...

I'm a bit late at getting my commenting done - sorry! Thank you so much for joining us as Guest Designer at CAS Watercolour! I love the glorious colours of the trees and the way you worked the sentiment die into the design - a stunning and very artsy card!
