Tulips in a Vase

I have an ultra CAS card to share today...featuring a Woodware stamp called (rather unimaginatively!) 'Tulips in a Vase'. I stamped the image using Versamark Ink on to a snippet of watercolour paper, then heat embossed it in white. I watercoloured it using Distress Inks (colours used: Stormy Sky, Broken China, Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves, Wilted Violet, Mowed Law, Lucky Clover & Peeled Paint). I simply added the watercoloured panel to the card blank using 3D foam pads...I thought about adding a sentiment, but couldn't decide where to put it, so left well alone!

Challenges for this card:


  1. This card is so lovely. Great watercolouring.

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  4. Love this Helen! CAS at its best and the white embossing then colouring is such a fabulous look too! I think a sentiment might have been a bit too much in the space you had available - but isn't it hard sometimes to just walk away. Glad you did though!

    Great to see you in the Playground, I had a day off yesterday so am catching up now with commenting :)
