      CAS Watercolour July's Top Picks


      Before we announce our Top Pick and Outstanding Designs this month, we'd like to answer a question posed by one of our participants about
      how the winners are chosen.
      Please click HERE to see the explanation.


      It has been a fun and creative month of Splash Watercolouring.

      I especially appreciated all the kind comments about my time spent on the
      CAS Watercolour Design Team as this is my last month on the DT,
      but I will not be going far.  I will still be on the CAS Mix Up DT and playing
      on the inspiring CAS Watercolour Challenge.

      Thank you dear Loll and Bonnie for the opportunity to improve my techniques
      and play along with an awesome and talented group of friend :-)
      Hugs ... Nancy 


      Our Top Pick for July
      Ros
      Ros's Splash under sea background is perfect for her cute watercolored
      die cut Octopus that is peeking through the port hole:-)
      Ros's CAS card designs are always so cheerful, unique and with clean, crisp White Space!

      Congratulations, Ros!

        Welcome to a new challenge!

        Before we get to the challenge, the team is sad to say good-bye to Nancy.
        This will be Nancy's last month here at CAS Watercolour.
        Thank you Nancy for the inspiring cards you have made
        and all your hard work at CAS Watercolour.
        We will all miss you so much!!

        Nancy is hosting her final challenge this month and here's what
        she wants to share with you ...


        "What creates differences in "Splash Watercolouring" is the use of
        different watercolour mediums and different watercolour papers.
        Experiment and have fun with the Splash technique.
        The only Video necessary is Loll's "Splash Watercolour Backgrounds".
        After a couple of minutes you will be ready to create!"


        Please follow this video for the
        Splash Watercolouring Technique.
