CAS Watercolor Card Challenge - November - TEXT

I am so excited to be a part of the team for the monthly CAS Watercolor Card Challenge. To see who else is on the team along with the creators of the challenge, Loll and Bonnie, click here.

The theme for this month's challenge is TEXT. So keep your card CAS, use text (other than a sentiment) and watercolor!  Here is my sample:

The image is all one stamp by Sweet 'N Sassy. I stamped it several times so I could get a good impression with my MISTI on 140 lb. watercolor paper with Versafine Onyx Black. I then masked off the sides of the image and proceeded to do a wet on wet watercolor using my Kuretake Gansai Tambi water colors. Once it was dry I removed the masking tape, painted the roses at the bottom and then applied a red rhinestone for her earring.

I am looking forward to seeing your creations and I'll be back mid month with another sample!

Thanks for coming by!
