Red & Black Watercolour

Hi there. It's time for another CAS Watercolour Challenge and this month, our host Marcia, has chosen 'Black and Red' as a theme.

My first thought was to do a flower ie poppy, but then I thought of Banksy's 'Balloon Girl' and that's where I got my inspiration.



I used Zig Markers directly on the stamp and spritzed, stamping repeatedly until I was happy. I used a slightly wet brush to blend on the page. I had to leave out part of the image, above the horizon line, because that made it more CAS and sharp. 
The 'Eiffel Tower" stamp is from Penny Black and the sentiment 'Small Fancy Labels 4' is from Inspired by Stamping



This month our Guest Designer is... 
I hope you visit our blog to see what the rest of the team have created and you can join in the challenge.

I hope you'll join us in this month's challenge!

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:-

    1. I was there 2 years ago and am visiting again in October. I still love it, but I spend my time there differently now and avoid tourist traps. We're spending most of our time in the south of France:)
