Autumn watercolor

Sharing some fun news I just learned about.
There's a brand new card challenge, 'CasWatercolor', by
Loll Thompson and Bonnie Klass, from Cas Mix Up Challenge.

 I love to watercolor, and so glad it's such a hot and trendy technique 
to use on cards.

Watercolored and stamped die cut leaves from PTI's Leaf Prints.
I used Windsor Newton watercolors, from a tube, to get
the intense fiery colors on the leaves.
I stamped and watercolored a few leaves onto 3 1/2 x 4 1/2" watercolor card stock, using PTI's Simply Chartreuse & Olive Twist inks.
Flicked some Mr. Hueys white spray 
and Olive Twist over the stamped images.
Sentiment from PTI's Color Pop Autumn.
'Bountiful' white embossed, then inked with Liquitex Iridescent Bright Gold.
'Blessings': Olive Twist. (PTI)

Background card stock is a left over from a challenge.
1st stamped with PTI's Background Basics: Super Chevron,
then watercolored randomly and splattered with Harvest Gold ink.

Play along all during the month of October,
and this is a design team call until the 15th!
