Autumn with Brushos


Hi everyone.  Pulled out my brushos again ... so much fun!  Used a LARGE Hero Arts flower stencil, sprinkled with autumn colours of brushos, spritzed with water and then let dry.  Ended up with a large piece that I cut in half to make two cards.  Love when I can get a twofer out of one image. :)

For those of you that might not have read my earlier posts, Bonnie and I have started a new card challenge --- CAS Watercolour.  This card is heading there. :) The first challenge is ...



Create a CAS Autumn card using watercolouring (any watercolour technique or products are welcome), and then come link up and join the fun.  We'd love to see you in the gallery.

There's also a Design Team Call from October 1-15, 2016 for those that might be interested.


Also heading over to join the fun at the Snippets Playground.  I used a snippet of my watercoloured flower for the card, along with a snippet for the sentiment panel.  :)

My friend Aileen has started up a new card challenge, The Flower Challenge.  It just launched yesterday with a fantastic line-up of talented design team members.  The first challenge is "Anything Goes", I'm entering my card above. Congrats on a fabulous new challenge Aileen and team!!

Beautiful card Loll! As always you're bang on the nail here, very clever to use half the piece and then add the sentiment right underneath as you did too.

Lovely to see you in the Playground, sorry for being late, I'm playing catch up right now!

Hugs
