This week we get back to our schedule with the game "PLAY".  Lets' PLAY with Watercolors!"

Watercolor really brings out the talent! We expect this to be a most beautiful and fascinating challenge!
Use any watercoloring media you enjoy most. Have fun with wild colorful watercolor Embossings, or Fine Art paintings, Color washes and splashes. Your watercoloring can be the background or the detail, an embellishment or die cut- we're very open to design and technique. We ask that your submission be in the CAS style. And this week please tell us about your paints of choice. I 'm fascinated with all the different possibles. Next week we'll highlight the winners card.

Our DT's have been working on their watercolor cards and I'm very happy to share them with you.
