CAS Watercolour September Mid Month Reminder

Hi everyone, the middle of September came around so quickly, now I'm wondering where did the summer go 😊.
Here is my reminder card for CAS watercolour Silhouettes.  Pop by and check out the design teams awesome work and our guest designer Birgit Edblom or Biggan as she is known at Split Coast Stampers.
Silhouettes make for quick and easy cards when you have some backgrounds available.  This one is a selection of blue distress oxide inks on a craft mat and spritzed with water.  The mixed media paper is smooshed onto the craft mat and dried between each layer.  I used this great Memory box silhouette stamp and some white Stampendous frantage embossing enamel for the snow.  I used the Memory Box Sheer circle edge die to follow the snow drifts.

I would love to see your thoughts on my cards, so please leave a comment if you have time.

Absolutely Stunning Distess Oxide background for your stamped silhouette trees. I love the added snow and how your die cut circles also have a nice curve like your snow banks. A beautiful CAS design my friend. TFS Hugs..

Christine, this might be one of my all-time favourites of your cards. I love the mix of blues, the frantage, and the great trees. The use of the Memory Box edge die adds so much texture and interest.

Wow! Christine !! This card is exceptionally beautiful. I love beautiful watercolor background and gorgeous snow so beautifully out of the silhouette of the trees. My attention is drawn also to the wave cut under the picture. It gives the impression of snowdrifts. Everything looks stunning.

Awesome card, Christine! Your DOx ink smooshed background is stunning. And your silhouette trees finishes off this winter scene perfectly.
