Challenge #98 - Watercolour

Hello there, CAS addicts! We hope you're ready for another fun challenge!

This fortnight, we have an amazing challenge hosted by the incredibly talented Anja! The code word she has chosen for you is 


That's right, "Watercolour"...Can you believe it?! Watercolouring has become a very popular medium for coloring images, and we know you will be flooding the gallery with lots of gorgeous cards! You can use any form that you like...Distress Inks or markers, classic watercolour cakes, tubes, Peerless...whatever you like, since the sky is the limit! 

Just be sure to keep it Clean & Simple!


Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is...


Happy Little Stampers was created in 2015 by Kylie (owner of ATSM and ATCAS). Kylie wanted to bring out a line of stamps that were useful for every day crafters. From cute to whimsical images, from everyday to funky sentiments there is something for everyone!

Prize: $15.00 Gift Certificate


Our lovely and super talented Guest Designer for this challenge is ~



Guten Tag! I'm a Michigan gal living in Germany - came for a job, stayed for a guy! We live in the beautiful Rhine wine region - I'm actually out harvesting grapes with a local winemaker as you read this. I'm a SAHM and an English tutor with two kids, a rabbit and a dog. I've always loved making things and a few years ago thought I'd attempt scrapbooking. I got detoured by cardmaking though - the smaller canvas is less intimidating - and then I even started blogging at rieslingmama about four years ago. I enjoy my work on a couple design teams and like to play challenges, though I often miss deadlines by the time I get myself to my craft room ;) Stamps, inks, dies and blog friends have become a big part of my life. Just ask my family ;) Have fun with this CAS Watercolor theme - I sure did!


Here is our inspiration for you ~

Challenge #96 - Harvest

Welcome back! Happy Saturday everyone. Are you ready for a new challenge here at ATCAS? We are!

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Wendy Johnson



"Hello there. My name is Wendy and I live with my husband in the beautiful hills of the Peak District in Derbyshire, UK. I started crafting about 10 years ago after my mum inspired me with her cardmaking although she sadly passed away in May this year. I could spend hours making cards (and quite often do) in my little craft room which I am in the middle of redecorating so it’s a bit of a mess at the moment – well actually, it’s quite often that way after I’ve been crafting anyway! I love to make CAS cards particularly with a cute critter in it somewhere.

The theme ‘Harvest’ always makes me think of pumpkins so that is my card for this challenge. I hope you all enjoy playing along."

Here is Wendy's card
