CAS Mix-up and CAS Watercolor

I did some ghosting for the challenge at CAS Mix-up.  If you don't know what that is or need help in accomplishing it, go to the blog and check out the video links they have for you.
I inked my paper and then placed a stencil from PTI over it, spritzed with water and after a bit, mopped it up with a paper towel.  I didn't really like it so I inked it up again which gave a totally different look, not ghostly at all.
In fact it darkened the lightest parts but I may do that again because I like it.
But that's not the challenge so to remedy that I replaced the stencil and spritzed again.  I trimmed down the panel and added the watercolored leaf from PTI.  It needed something so I added the splatter and the acorns.  Now before you make a comment, I know that's NOT an oak leaf but it was done and I didn't want to change it.

Since I watercolored the leaf, I'm also sending this to the sister challenge CAS Watercolor whose theme is Autumn.

That's the last of my finished cards.  I guess I'd better get busy.  Thanks for dropping by.


  1. Great job Bobby. The background is so cool. Interesting how spraying the second time made things darker. Love the leaves and acorns ... really beautiful! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up and CAS Watercolour! xx

  2. I like that reverse ghosting, Bobby! It's a fabulous look! Gorgeous Autumn leaves too and I love the added touch of the splatter and acorns! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at CAS Mix Up and CAS Watercolour!

  3. Beautiful autumn colours and great ghosting. Love the leaf and acorns, and the way you did the sentiment. Thanks for joining us at CAS Mix Up.

  4. Beautiful! Now I know how to remedy my panel that the "spritzing" didn't work on! Try, try again! Lovely card.

  5. Just lovely, Bobby ... the subtle background is gorgeous ... fabulous with those beautifully coloured leaves (oak or not!) and the acorns! Hugs, Anita :)
