CAS Watercolour Rainbow

Springtime and Rainbows are a beautiful combination!
Here is Loll's May CAS Watercolour Card Challenge.

You are going to love all the gorgeous samples from our DT 
and our very talented GD Hannelie (desert diva).

Here is my SSS Luminary Circles Dies using Rainbow Distress Oxide Inks!

I sponged T.H. Distress Inks:Candied Apple, Spice Marmalade, Wild Honey, 
Lucky Clover, Salty Ocean, and Wilted Violet onto 
Strathmore Mixed Media paper. Then used my aqua painter to spread watercoloured inks.

Next die cut my background with SSS "Luminary Circles Die".  
Using my new SSS Marvy Jewel Picker made picking up
and gluing each circle thru the die negative onto SU Thick Whisper White CS, 
so quick and easy. I Loved the result.

I think this Jewel Picker is a must have tool for picking up sequins, etc.

Next I die cut the XOXO from a scrap of watercoloured background 
and glued onto cardstock.  Then popped up with fun foam.

So colorful and fun.  Thanks again Loll for a cool challenge.

You have until the 24th to play along.  Happy Springtime Stamping. Hugs..
