CAS Watercolour Silhouette Reminder

The month is flying by...already time for our CAS Watercolour Silhouette Reminder cards!

  So many Inspiring and Creative Silhouette cards by our DT and amazing Guest Designer, Birgit (Rapport fran ett skrivbord)

I am trying to catch up on my Christmas Card Stash!


I used a scrap from the large background I created for This Christmas Card. I made 7 cards from the large background and still had a few scraps left over:-)

I used Brushos powder on Arches Hot Press paper and spritzed liberally with water. Then added Himalayan Pink salt, Sea Salt and Table salt on my 9" x 9" watercolor piece of paper.  I do love the watercolor salt technique for backgrounds.  I did add white acrylic paint splatters for a snowy effect.  Also die cut my main image using Memory Box Stitched Rectangles die.

I added the Rich Razzleberry die cut frame to make the Brushos background pop.

The Poppystamps Snowflake Ribbon Craft die was from a playday spent with my very crafty girlfriend Leslie (Running With Scissors).  We always have fun sharing products when we craft together:-)  I attached with SU Fine Tip Glue Pen and added Wink of Stella and rhinestone for a bit of glitter.

Next I die cut my card front with CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Die. Attached main image that I popped up with fun foam.  Then stamped my all time favorite SU Merry Christmas sentiment using Archival Jet Black ink and Done!

Hope you get to join the fun at CAS Watercolour.  We would love to see your silhouette CAS cards:-)  You have until the 24th to play along.  Hugs....

  1. I'm still loving this background, Nancy! So pretty with the touches of plum within the blue! Love the splatters too and that die is perfect for this background! A beautiful Christmas card, my friend!

  2. You've created another gorgeous Christmas card, Nancy! I LOVE the blue salted watercolour backgrounds for this card and the Fir Trees' one. Framing the blue sky with the Rich Razzleberry is effective, and adding the white acrylic paint splatters and a rhinestone is a nice finishing touch too. Crafting with friends is so fun, isn't it? Hugs.. Hideko
