November CAS Watercolour challenge Holliday

Yes we are all gearing up for Christmas, the decorations are in the shops and I'm sure we all haven't made enough Christmas cards.  CAS Watercolour challenge for November is giving you the chance to top up your stash and join in. There will be lots of inspiration from the Design team, Guest Designer (Ina) and of course you.


For my card, I swiped some distress watercolour ink pads on my craft mat and used my watercolour brush using a wet on wet technique, the snow in the trees is frantage and I used a white gel pen on the fence.  To frame the image I a Simon Says Stamp stitched circle and selected the best part of the image.
This month our Guest Designer is Ina of Little bits of Craft, Ina has some fabulous cards on her blog please drop by and say hello.


I would love to hear from you 😃
