CAS Watercolor challenge... a reminder :)

Hi there!

I made this card to remind you that there is still time to join Bonnie & Loll's CAS watercolour challenge  with a snowflake theme!


                                                        


Here it is :


up close:


The snowflakes were cut with my Silhouette cameo, and swooshed through watercolor (zigs spritzed with water on acetate)

After giving 3 octagon dies a very light color wash, I adhered the snowflakes to them, and positioned it diagonally on my card base with sentiment.
Added a tiny blue rhinestone to the center of each snowflake as final touch.

As always , feel welcome to download the sentiment for personal use:




I would like to play along in the following challenges:

Time out challenges ~ Winter (without the additional twist)

&

Curtain call challenge ~ Icicle


                  Grab Our Badge!                  


I hope to see you join the watercolor fun!

Hugs and thanks for visiting me today!

Hannelie

Now I never would have thought to smoosh snowflakes with ink but I am loving the effect. This card is so pretty. I really like how the elements are on a diagonal like that. So cool.

Love those pretty, icy colors. Your snowflakes fit so perfectly inside those octagons. Thank you for considering your followers/readers and offering this sentiment for personal use, too.

Gorgeous card! You totally captured a soft, warm 'wintery' feel with the gorgeous colors that you used on the snowflakes! Fabulous octagon 'mats' and great design :)

Wouldn't it be beautiful if snowflakes were really that color? This is lovely, Hannelie.
