CAS Mix Up - October

Well, well, I finally made it again!  I've really been wanting to try this "new to me" ghosting technique, and I found a little inspiration (ok, a LOT) in Loll's card, below...

It's a beauty, right!?!  She is just soooo amazing!!!  I needed to stock up on a few "encouragement" type cards, because I had donated a bunch , so I made this...

I made this baby to send over to CAS Mix Up, and super excited because I thought I could also enter the new "sister" challenge CAS Watercolour, but alas I learned that it had a theme of Autumn.  Anywhooo I started with a Bristol panel, and watercolored with Brushos.  BTW I think I'm in love with this color! Then I went back and did the new-to-me ghosting technique with a stencil and water, and let that dry.  I die cut a couple flowers, layered by 3, and stamped a little sentiment.  This was quite fun!

Products -
   Paper:  Bristol smooth, PTI Limeade Ice
   Brushos:  Sea Green
   Stencil:  SSS Gingham
   Die;  Essentials by Ellen Wild Garden
   Ink:  PTI Enchanted Evening, Limeade Ice
