For a while I wanted to try a CAS card, but boy, can it be difficult or what? Finally, today I got inspiration from Less is More Challenge #17 Recipe - Pick a square. That is, one of the five squares you can see below:
Obviously, I went for the bottom right.
Apart from this being my first CAS card, it is the first time that I tried a new technique for the first time: watercolour! I had seen a few videos and tutorials, but I always thought it would be too difficult for me. This morning, I've been trying several white cardstocks, experimenting with the colour density, trying different inks to stamp the image... And it was soooo much fun!
At the end I went for Memento cocoa to stamp the image, as I wanted a brown colour and the choices from my stash were a bit limited. But if you let the ink dry really well, it does not get smudged with the water.
I didn't have a watercolour paper (as I didn't intent to use the watercolour technique!), and I found out that I was getting better results with a heavy weight sketch paper I had...
At the end, I came up with the card that you see, which I hope you like ;o)
