January CAS Water Colour Challenge - Cool Colors

I'm excited to announce I am now on the CAS Water Colour Challenge DT 
(as well as continuing on the CAS Stencil DT). 

This month, Bonnie is our hostess and she wants us to use Cool Colors!
And here is my first CAS Watercolour Card as a member of the Design Team!
(I don't do watercoloring much so I'm sure I'll be learning a lot this year!)
I stamped the image - Snowy Village by Penny Black using my Misti, inking the stamps with Versafine Onyx Black so after drying, it wouldn't run with the watercoloring.  I brushed one area at a time with water, than brushed on watery watercolor paint using 3 shades of blue for the snowy ground and the top of the sky and a purple on the horizon of the sky.  I used a green on the snow covered buildings.  I die cut the piece and the frame with Nordic Frames from The Greetery.

So please play along with us this January -  you'll find the CAS Watercolour Challenge here.  There's lots of inspiration from the rest of the Design Team as well as our talented Guest Designer Chrissie!

I'm also linking my card to:
