CAS Watercolour June Challenge

Hi everyone.  Today is the start of the CAS Watercolour June Challenge.  This month is being hosted by sweet Bonnie (Stamping with Klass).

We are thrilled to have TaeEun (rainbow in november) as our Guest Designer this month!  Welcome TaeEun!

I used markers to colour the two shades of blue onto my flower stamp.  Spritzed lightly with water and stamped onto mixed media paper.  Repeated a couple more times until I was happy with the depth of colour.  Stamped the sentiment in the darker blue and added a few sequins for some shine

Here's a close-up ...
You'll find lots of inspiration on the challenge blog with the amazing cards from our Designers, and wonderful Guest Designer, TaeEun!  I hope you'll check them out and then come join us!

Paper:  Mixed Media paper (Strathmore 140 lb. 400 Series)
Ink:  Distress Markers:  Not sure of the colours ... the darker one is definitely Chipped Sapphire (Tim Holtz)
