CAS Watercolor September Challenge

Hi there ~
I'm back to share a card I created for this month's challenge at CAS Watercolor, and the theme is 'Silhouette'!





Instead of using a stamp for this challenge, I opened my Silhouette Studio software and found this image in my library from a few years ago (it's called 'Beauty Silhouette' #5292). I started with Peerless Watercolors on the textured side of Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock and I embossed the PTI sentiment in gold. A stitched oval and rectangle border with a few gold sequins and this card was completed!
Thanks to Bonnie for suggesting that I can enter this card is this month's challenge at CAS Mix Up :)


To fulfill the criteria for this challenge, I created the watercolor wash on the oval panel and stamped the sentiment. My 'choice' is one of my favorite techniques ~ die cutting.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend, and if you live in or near Florida, please stay safe! My daughter and granddaughter live on the east coast of Florida and I'm trying not to panic ~ So far, so good!

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Oh, my, I don't know how you're keeping it together with your daughter and granddaughter in FL! I pray they will be safe and you won't be a nervous wreck! It's a terrible storm! But your card is so calming and lovely! I love the felling of movement with the silhouette and the peaceful washed, oval background is gorgeous! You can add this at CAS Mix Up with that washed background. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour!

What a wonderful silhouette, Barb. The hair has such movement and the watercoloring is wonderful. I hope your family is safe in FL. My brother and wife live in St. Pete but happens to be vacationing in San Francisco. It must be difficult for them to not know what might happen to their home.
