CAS Follow Your Bliss

Happy Monday, 
I sure hope you had a good weekend!

Today's creation is inspired by several challenges.

The layout is from CAS(E) This Sketch
to use watercolors (or water-themed, or the colors of water)
and the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge to use at least 1 arrow on your card.

And here's my take on all 3 of those challenges!:

This one really was a challenge for me, as I had to keep in mind to keep it CAS (clean & simple)....I sooooo wanted to foo-foo-it-up!  LOL

I went with my Flourishes Bees & Blooms set...inking the images up with Memento Tuxedo Black, then I used my Prisma Watercolor Pencils.  I added those tiny pearls in the center & used Liquid Glass on the bee's wings.

There ya go, keeping it CAS!

Thanks for stopping by today...enjoy your week!
