Love the combination of blues on CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #185.  On a piece of acetate I brushed the three closest blues with the Zig Clean Colour watercolour brushes, added some Pearl Ex and spritzed with water.   Using Bristol paper I smooshed dried and re-smooshed to get the watercolour background.  I cut Penny Black’s Framed Fern die out of watercolour paper and threaded the blue beads to add interest.  That’s how the CASology watercolour theme all came together.

Hope you enjoy, thanks for stopping by 😀

  1. Beautiful watercolored background! I love the bead woven around the fern – terrific way to add a little extra dimension, Thanks for playing along with us at CASology this week!


  2. I love what you did with the colours – it’s a stunning background setting off the white die cut perfectly. Thanks so much for joining us at CAS Colours & Sketches again this week. Liz x


  3. That watercolour technique creates such a wonderful, dramatic background for that crisp, white fern frond. That creatively woven beading adds the perfect touch also. Lovely to have you join us at CASology this week, Jo!
