March Mid Month Reminders - CAS Watercolour and CAS Stencil

Since I'm on the Design Teams for both CAS Watercolour and CAS Stencil - I have two reminders and 2 cards to share today!
For my Luck of the Irish themed reminder card - I made a watercolored rainbow.
I die cut the MFT Rainbow and watercolored the separate pieces.  I water colored the Crimped Edge Frame die cut panel with blue to make a sky to hang my rainbow in!  I added punched hearts to each end and stamped the sentiment from Rainbow Greetings by MFT.


For my reminder CAS Stencil card, I heat embossed in gold with my open space being black.
I  used just a portion of the Bird in Window Stencil from Stencil Girl on my panel as seen below.  I used my Emboss it Dabber through the stencil and gold embossing powder.
If you've been thinking about joining the challenges this month you still have time!  Both challenges end 3/24/19 so link your CAS cards up soon!

Thank you Julia for sharing both your challenge cards. I loved your colorful rainbow Luck of the Irish card. Wonderful sentiment for your card.

I was curious as to what all your stencil looked like for your 2nd card. TFS all your photos. Your heat embossing turned out beautifully. Really liked your black "White space" too. Your card really pops!

Love that gold on black for your stencil card. Thanks for including the stencil in the picture as I didn't see that it was a bird at first. It just looked like an abstract shape but now I can clearly see the bird, that slight confusion just adds to the interest. Love the rainbow too xx

2 lovely cards Julia!
Your gold embossed on black is wonderful and very clever to just use part of your stencil. It looks fab! x
(Appreciate any tips about the use of the dabber tho' - I always end up with lots under the stencil ??)

Such a pretty watercoloured rainbow card and I like how you store/use the watercolours from those small plastic containers x. Such an eye catching second card. The gold looks so rich and love the black card stock x. Thank you for the fabulous inspiration x.
