Night Sky Watercolour

Hello there! It's time for another CAS Watercolour Challenge and this month I'm hosting.
I chose 'Night Sky' as the theme and this is my card...

This was a bit tricky to photograph, with the dark centre and silver glitter, but I hope you get the idea:)

I made the watercolour wash with Distress Inks and Brushos . I cut a circle window and adhered the star circle die cut.  I thought the sentiment from Stamplorations 'Woodland Friends', was a good match.

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

 Things are changing with the CAS Challenges.  Starting next month, CAS Mix Up will include Watercolour and Stencil challenges.  More details will be in June's CAS Mix Up post.  We hope you'll come play along! 

I just saw this picture in the Australian ABC News and thought it might give you more inspiration.
