Inspiration Galore!

Yesterday I had a day when I just felt like getting out my water colours and joining in a few challenges. My card is very CAS today and has water colouring that had to be quite detailed to get the look I wanted. First the card then the huge amount of inspiration that was drawn on to create it!



First off I used the photo from Fusion. I immediately loved the bunch of flowers in the photo and used the stunning splashes of blue, green and yellow as my starting point. I have used all these colours in my flowers, gradually blending from green, to blue and yellow. This was not my normal splash it on water colour painting but very specific and subtle. I love the texture of the water colour card and this was a nod to the wood grain in the photo. 

My card is one layer and only uses 2 flowers (not my normal 3) so I could enter Less is More and Crazy for CAS

All my stamps are from Uniko Studios and I have used 2 of their challenge colours so this will be entered into their challenge.

And finally I will enter Simon Says Wednesday Challenge is to use water colours.

Strange how you see one challenge (Fusion) then a few more pop up and a card comes together.

Even for me this card is very CAS and I did wonder if it was too CAS but then I went with my gut that was telling me....you like it!!

  31. I think that about my CAS cards sometimes. Anita reminded me the other day of something I once said 'if it was anymore CAS it would be blank!". If you like it, then it must be good I think. I think its gorgeous and love the hint of colour. CAS perfection!
