AAA Cards, CAS Mix Up, CAS Watercolour, CAS On Friday, HLS Watercolour Challenge


This is another of the cards I made at the HLS craft retreat during a session playing with Brushos. 

I sprinkled a couple of shades of blue onto the craft mat, misted with water and patted my watercolour card into the colours a few times, drying between layers, added die-cut trees and a stamped sentiment.

Playing at five challenges:
AAA Cards - Christmas
CAS Mix Up - Stamping + two items of your choice
CAS Watercolour - Anything Goes
CAS On Friday - Christmas
Happy Little Stampers Watercolour Challenge - Anything Goes w/optional twist Christmas

Thanks so much for looking. Have a great rest of the weekend! x
