Watercolour on Vellum part 2

Hello there friends. I'm here to remind you about this month's CAS Watercolour Challenge, which I'm hosting. I chose 'Watercolour on Vellum' as the theme.

This time I used smooshed some distress inks on my craft sheet, using a small amount of water and pressed the vellum over the diluted inks several times until I was happy with the result. When dry, I stamped and embossed the sentiment and hearts. I used a thinner piece of vellum this time and passed it through my Bigshot, between clean white sheets of paper to correct the warping. 

The cute Winnie & Walter birds are coloured with Zig Markers, the window die is from MFT/Dienamics and the sentiment is from Hero Arts.

If you pop over to the CAS Watercolour Blog, you will see the wonderful creations of our DT and 2 Guest Designers Ros & Birgit. I would love to see your creations too!!! You can enter the challenge here and there are some links to videos which may inspire you:)

I'm also entering the following challenges:-
