Welcome back to another week at CASology! We have a very  popular cue for you this week!


With the exception of some ‘drying time’, this was a quick and easy card to make! Heat guns are great at speeding up the process, but with watercolours, I prefer to let time work its magic.  I simply applied washes of watercolour to some watercolour cardstock. I used a range of purples, pinks, oranges and yellows on the page,and allowed the colours to mingle. Once dry, I stamped and heat-embossed this very pretty hibiscus onto the cardstock, and then fussy-cut it out. This is a super quick way to ‘watercolour’ several flowers at once. Just stamp your outline image onto an area of watercoloured cardstock  that has your preferred colour combo, and die-cut/fussy cut it out!

My hibiscus was then added to some regular cardstock. To keep the flower as the focal point, I left the leaves uncoloured. To add interest, I scallop-edged the bottom of the card and inlaid a pierced circle in the centre. LOTS of white space!

After visiting the rest of the DT, I hope you will be inspired to join us:
