CAS Watercolour February Love card Reminder

So many GORGEOUS Watercolour February Love cards by the CAS Watercolour Design Team and in the Gallery.  Hope you get to play along too.



Here is my Reminder Valentine Card...



Close Up  showing the W of S shimmer...


My sister Margie came out for a couple of days of stamping play time :-)  I borrowed Margie's TCW butterfly stencil and made this CAS Watercolour card using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.

I placed the stencil at an angle with part of the right wing off the paper and taped the stencil down with my 3M masking tape.  Love that tape...it is 2" wide,  never tears your paper and can be reused over and over.  Then came the fun marker coloring with my Zigs.

I punched some hearts out of scrap CS and used as a stencil then colored the hearts with the same colors as the butterfly and punched out with my SU heart punch.

Stamped my SU Field Flowers (ret) sentiment with Archival Black ink and added my hearts with mini glue dots.  Then I went over my butterfly and hearts with my Wink of Stella marker for a bit of bling.   A very CAS pretty design for my 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" square card.

Enjoy and do drop by to see all the new beautiful CAS Watercolour Reminder Cards by our very talented DT and GD.   You still have until February 24th to play.  Happy Valentine's Day to you all...Hugs!

Supplies listed in description.....

My card is also for the STAMPlorations February CAS Challenge Anything goes & Twist..Hot Pink.
