CAS Colours & Sketches #125

Another set of gorgeous colours for the new challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches. And as I've recently filled in some of the gaps in my SU inkpads I've actually got all three colours - makes life so much easier.

I decided to try a little watercolouring for my card and started by spritzing some water over the ink on an acrylic block. I painted stripes of colour, leaving a space between each one.

While the stripes were still wet I had fun flicking some of the leftover ink over them and onto the card. Then came the hard part - leaving it all to dry!

Back I came later in the day and stamped the beautiful dandelions on top of my watercolouring. The whole panel was then matted onto some coloured cardstock slightly off centre and down to the bottom right.

Stamps: Lavinia Stamps, Dandelions; Clearly Besotted, sentiment from Geometric Style
Inks: SU, crushed curry, elegant eggplant, garden green; Memento, tuxedo black

So what will you create with these colours? I know I'll be blown away by your imagination and creativity. Don't forget to check out what the rest of the DT has made to inspire you - here.

Thanks for visiting my blog today, I do appreciate you taking the time. And keep crafting!
