Guest Designer for CAS Watercolour Challenge

I was so honored recently by those sweet ladies over at the CAS Watercolour Challenge … thank you for inviting me to be your Guest Designer!  Their theme for December could not be more appropriate!


You won't mind if I bring out this sweet little Altenew stamp that I adore, will you?  I mean who wouldn't love to receive flowers as a thank you?  and how could I resist adding a bit of glamour, too?  


 
Distress inks are a my favorite inks to watercolor with.  Here are those I've used today:
 

Thank you, Bonnie & Loll for this honor!  and to all of you kind folks who drop by for a visit?  This one's for all of you:

Firstly, I want to say congrats on your well-deserved GD spot, Michele! Your bouquet of flowers is absolutely beautiful! I love how you colored each element, especially how you added a touch of gold, then wrapped the 'T' around the stems...such elegant details on this lovely card, my friend :)

This is stunning!

Loll said...

I LOVE your sweet bouquet of beautiful flowers, Michele! Wonderfully watercoloured with bright colours. Your hidden sentiment technique is just perfectly done and such a creative design to tuck the end of the bouquet into the curve of the T. Thanks so much for being our Guest Designer this month at CAS Watercolour! xx

Congratulations on the Guest Designer spot at the CAS Watercolour, Michele!
Your thank-you card is so lovely and CAS perfection. I love the white-on-white camouflage sentiment and the letter, T, hugging the stems! The pretty colors of the bouquet pop against the open white space. Great choice for adding gold. It does add glamour. Thank *YOU* for making this beauty for us!
