CAS Watercolour Challenge

Hello it's me again...
With a card for this months challenge at


I needed a birthday card for a friend and inspiration was away on holiday but eventually it came together


Using Gansai Tambi paints, I started by painting sparkly white through a piece of card that I'd cut a heart into... Not that you can see that sparkle...
With the heart stencil still in place, I used a fan brush to randomly  make some shapes that sort of remind me of blue wisteria...


Well, I got that far but it needed something else and knowing my friend loves birds as well as her garden, I added a branch, painted some die cut birds and that was that.

It's rained all day again today and it's dull... Like a winters day and we're all getting a little fed up with being couped up - Especially the cats!

Have a lovely weekend and take care

~ Ros ~

I immediately thought of wisteria when I saw your blue background around the edge of the heart, so cleverly done Ros, and then the silver branch with the sweet little blue birds goes perfectly over the top. A very pretty card. x

Such beautiful and creative faux watercolored wisteria, Ros. You are always so clever. Adding the branch and blue birds were the perfect addition. TFS my friend. Wishing you sunshine:-) Hugs...

Lovely card for your friend! Wonderful effect, which looks like real wisteria, so pretty! Great addition with the birds, too! Hope the weather improves there very soon. We had a lovely day yesterday! Today we had more rain again, but the sun is peeking through once again. Have a great week, hugs!
