CAS Watercolor Challenge and Happy Little Stampers Challenge

For my last challenges this week [back to DT work on the blog], I joined in the CAS Watercolor Challenge; silhouette, and again, in Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge; silhouette. Also adding this in the Muse Challenge #232.

I have had these triangle dies for awhile, and made myself use them!  I watercolored a panel, added some additional water for flow, let it dry, and then cut out the triangle.  I used one of my first purchased wood block stamp [yeah 20+ years old! I'm a keeper what can I say] for the added silhouette.  The way the white spots dried, kind of makes this look like an underwater scene.  I rather like it. [I won't tell you I was going for snow]  My Joy is from Memory Box.  I sure love vivid color against white.


Thanks Challenges -- another fun day at my desk!

This is a beautiful piece of watercolor, Vicki! I love how the black makes it stand out beautifully against all that white! I keep my favorite stamps too. Using them is sometimes another story! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at CAS Watercolour!
