AAA Card Challenge – Game 23 PLAY with Watercolors!

The challenge over at AAA is to “play” with Watercolours. Well that is exactly what I did…play. I tried to create a couple of fall trees, and what fun flicking watercolours with a toothbrush on the moistened watercolour paper from Tim Holtz. When I was done, I added a base, and some blue sky. After drying, I die cut two tree trunks (SSS and Memory Box) out of the watercolour paper,  and cut two additional trunks brown cardstock, and inlaid them. The sentiment is from PI, and the leaf was leftover from my Encaustic cards from the previous post.

treesI also entered my card into the following challenges:

CASology – Splatter

Craft-room Challenge – Seasonal Colours

City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 232 ~ LEAVES

Cards in Envy – Autumn Leaves Challenge

UPDATE:  I won double with Cards in Envy with my card. Wow! My card was selected with the Top Honour as First Class and well as Three of the DesignTeam members Favorite. See Cards in Envy – Autumn Leaves Challenge
