A Mix Up Watercolour Card

Hi and Welcome. I have a card for you today for the
CAS Mix Up and CAS Watercolour Challenges.
Same card though!
Check out the details for Mix Up Here
We are asked to show how we colour our Dies
and Watercolour Here to Splash Watercolour.
Loll has an easy peasy Tutorial Here
Now those that know me are aware that I love
messing around with all sorts of techniques.
Here is what I came up with - 
I am using 'those' SU 4 Feathers Dies
but before I got to them I started with my background.
I inked my craft mat with Tim's Mermaid Lagoon
then added some  Perfect Pearls Powder. All I had to do was
a bit of thumping my watercolour cs onto the mat
and drying as I went along making sure I only covered
part of my paper. It has a real shimmer IRL.
I then cut out my feathers and randomly thumped
parts of the feather. The back one I inked the edges.
My twine wasn't the right colour so I inked that up with
the Mermaid Lagoon (with my fingers)
Yes I had nice coloured fingers when I finished.
The feather were then popped after I added my twine.
Sentiment is from 49 AND Market.

My MIX is -  Die Cuts
Splash Water Colouring 
Distress Inks and Powder
My CAS is Splash Watercolouring
on the background and cut feathers.

Clean and Simple on Sunday
have also got a CAS Splash Water Colour Challenge
so will pop this over there.

Since it's Winter here in 
'The Land Down Under'  it's a great time to play
and I have a few other cards in the finishing stages
so there is more to come for those CAS Challenges.

Once more I will add this over at
Monochrome Magic for their latest Challenge Here
This time not with the twist of 'purple'

Till next time
