Cool Colours Watercolouring

Mid month reminder to join in and play along with 
hosted by Bonnie with the theme

Here's a sampling of cool colors

For this card I chose a poppy - part of a large stamp, carefully inked the area I wanted in Versamark, stamped and clear embossed it - then watercoloured it with "cool coloured" Distress Inks and a tiny amount of Brushos. Then I fussy cut the image, die cut a stitched frame using a large die with tails but part cut it, turned it and re-positioned the die to make it smaller...I often do this... did it also with the stamped and silver embossed sentiment.  To give the card some dimension I dry embossed the background panel and then arranged the elements with foam tape...and to finish added a few silver gems.

The CAS Watercolour challenge closes on the 24th, we'd love to see your cards in the gallery.
Thanks for stopping by - have a happy day
