I had so wanted to participate in the CAS Watercolor challenge but I had used pp where it should have been more open space. So this go around I colored the frame with watercolors in purple and added the same shade to the butterfly. Then added gold watercolor to the rest of the butterfly. Cut out the white behind the frame and stamped sentiment in black. Mounted all on the plain goldenrod color cs and that is mounted on white cs base.
It is really funny because when I first starting posting my creations I kind of took offence when so many of you left comments telling me you liked my CAS style. I thought I had gotten tons of layers and embellishments and did not want to be known as CAS. Now, when I am embracing the idea, I am getting too much clutter. I still love the challenges for keeping the creative juices flowing and actually like both versions of this card.
