March STAMPlorations CAS Challenge - Mid-Month Inspiration

As usual the weeks have just flown by and we are already in mid-March. So we are popping in with a mid-month inspiration post from the fantastic STAMPlorations CAS team to hopefully inspire you to create something sky blue for our March CAS challenge.

We just came back from a week's skiing holiday and when we got home, it felt like spring. The daffodils are in full bloom as is the apricot tree. So I thought it would be perfect timing to get out the Framed Solitary Daffodil which I stamped using Versafine onto watercolour card and painted with Gansai Tambi watercolours. I die cut the first part of the sentiment using the Happy Word Die and stamped and fussy cut the word Easter using Sketchy Alphabet. Before adhering everything in place, I splattered some watercolours on a white card base to create some interest in the background as well. I really like how the colour combo turned out, I particularly love that stunning vibrant green in the Gansai Tambi palette.

Card: 250 gsm white smooth card, scrap of yellow card, scrap of blue card, 300 gsm Daler&Rowney Watercolour paper
Ink and colouring: Tsukineko Versafine Onyx Black, Gansai Tambi watercolours
Dies: CUTplorations Happy Word Die
