Where Creativity Meets C9 Watercolor Challenge

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the Where Creativity Meets C9 Blog Challenge Design Team!! Our challenge this month is Watercolor!!

Watercoloring is one of my favorite mediums to use.  It is so forgiving and no matter what happens it is your masterpiece.  There are no mistakes with watercoloring and that is what is so much fun when I work with them.

For my card today, I created my own background using a couple of colors and a paintbrush. Super easy and totally fun.

Take a look at my card:

For this card, I used Prima’s Confection Odyssey Watercolor, a 12 flat brush and Concord and 9th By Your Side stamp set.

Here’s how I created this card:

  1. Select the colors you want to use.
  2. Wet your brush, pick up a color and create squares on your card front.
  3. Once you have as many squares as you want, heat set so that the watercolor square could dry.
  4. Stamp the sentiment using Altenew Permenant Black ink.
  5. Round the corners using We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board.

Super quick and simple!

What do you think?  Please let know below.

I can’t wait to see how you interpret our challenge theme this month.

Hello everyone!! I’m currently away at CHA. I promise to come back with tons of info to share with all of you.

I’m here today with CS Take It Make It Design Team for our CS Take It Make It: Take a Stamp Challenge for the month of January.

This month’s theme is Take a Stamp!!  That means take any stamp and create something, anything goes!! Now if that isn’t easy, I’m not sure what is!!

Take a look at my card:

Hello (TIMI)

I have to say I’m in love with Purple Onion Design Stamps!!!  They are too cute and fun to play with.  This cute rabbit stamp is called Fawn.  I love him!!

Here is how I created this card:

  1. I stamped the tree line horizon first then I stamped Fawn using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig for perfect placement.
  2. I colored the images using Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils and Gamsol.
  3. The colors I used were 156 Cobalt Green, 124 Rose Carmine, 271 Warm GreyII, and 107 Cadmium Yellow.
  4. Then I stamped the sentiment under the hill!

Super cool and fun to create a scene!!

Take a closer look:

I’m here today with CS Take It Make It Design Team Challenge!  This card is to provide you with some inspiration so that you could stop on by and play along.

Do you remember how to do this technique?  If not click here.

Take a look at my card:

In Life

Isn’t my Dragon, from the Sweet Stamp Shop,  just the cutest little creature you’ve seen!!  So what was stamped on tissue paper here?  Give up?

Only the dragon was stamped on tissue paper!!  I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored him with my new Copic Markers YR16 and BG49.

I used a mask and blended Distress Ink Broken China with my Mini Ink Blending Tool to create my night background.

My sentiment comes from a special stamp set from Mama Elephant and Kelly Purkey that I was given when I attended Mama Elephant’s event early this year.

I added Lawn Fawn Into the Woods Sequin to the card.

So, what do you think?  Please, let me know.
