Blossom Builder Punch are Shells on a Beach

My card this week is inspired by Lynda at Understanding Blue.  I have CASED her card to create this sympathy card.  She has a great tutorial on how to create this card.  I wish my sand would not have turned out so dark but I think on my next try I’ll try a lighter brown.  I still like the effect of the watercolor technique.

Everybunny Easter Watercolor Card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a watercolor technique challenge.  With Easter a few weeks awayI used the Everybunny stamp set to create this card.  I used blender pens and stamp pads to color the bunny image.  I stamped it with black StayzOn then colored away.  I used a bright color combination of Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo and Concord Grape.  I apologize for the photo.  My camera is still out for repair and had to take the photo with my iPhone.  The colors don’t show up true.

Falling Leaves keep falling

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have sketch challenge to create either a fall or Halloween project.  The sketches are from the October SUCCESS magazine for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.  I’ve been wanting to use the leaf image from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set.  It’s perfect for a fall card and using the Stampin’ Up! water color pencils with the Aqua Painter blends the colors so easily.  I would love to see your creation so hop on over to HHS and post your creation.

I used More Mustard card stock as my card base and used my Big Shot to texture it with the Square Lattice embossing folder.  I stamped the leaf image on water color paper, used water color pencils to color the image.  I sponged the edges with More Mustard classic ink then adhered to a Chocolate Chip layer.  The Old Olive DSP is from the Welcome Neighbor DSP pad from Sale-a-bration.  The circles were punched with Two-step owl punch and I used antique brass brads in the centers.  The ribbon was fluted by pulling on one of the fibers then adhered with mini dots.  The smallest layer is Chocolate Chip CS.
