Sending you Love

Hi everyone.  A reminder for the CAS Watercolour September Challenge - Silhouette.


My card starts with the Inka Gold background.  I smooshed Rose Inka Gold along with Brushed Corduroy re-inker.  It's a different colour combination for me, but I love how it turned out.  I then stamped script randomly over the background for some more interest.  I used a corner die-cut with dragonflies, cut from black to be my silhouette.  I framed it in white and stamped a sentiment.

We are already over half way through the month.  There's still just over a week to play along with our challenge before it closes.  There are AMAZING entries in our gallery.  Come check them out and see the reminder cards from the Design Team and our wonderful Guest Designer, Birgit.

I love your soft and beautiful smooshed watercoloured background, Loll. Your die cut silhouette dragonflies was the perfect embellishment for your background. TFS Hugs...

This is my all time favorite color combination! Love the brown with a hint of rose/red/pin in it. I have this die and love how you used it in the frame as a silhouette. Thanks again for all the inspiration!
