Thank You Dear Friends


Hi everyone.  I had fun using this beautiful leaf stencil with Brushos.  I used a combination of autumn colours (yellow, orange and red) ... and threw in a little tuquoise to add something a little unexpected.  So happy with how they turned out. I made several of these, each one just a little different as Brushos always gives a unique look.

This is a reminder of the new CAS Watercolour Card Challenge that just started this month.

October's theme is ...
