Default June 3rd F4A328 - Watercoloring

Hi, it is Shirley aka Wannabcre8tive posting today. It is my week to be your challenge host for the Free 4 All Challenge.

This week I am challenging you to make a card with watercoloring. You can do real watercoloring or faux. Since I have been babysitting my grandson this week and I am not good at watercoloring, I have done two faux watercolor cards by using a brush stroke stamp.

Keyword F4A328

F4A Gallery

Uploading: Remember the keyword is without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.

If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!

Need help linking a card? Follow these instructions!

1. Open 2 windows: One window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Got to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.

Heart F4A328 Beautiful Blessing

Went with SU's Watercolor Minis set that I just got at our local thrift store- love this set! Added some scalloped edges, and a marbled panel from my stamping buddies, along with a super sentiment- dedicated to my DD who has been visiting. Here's Beautiful Blessing

Here's mine. I stressed myself out, but it ended up "not that bad to do" I sure do admire a hostess who is as brave as you are.

This is my second card for this challenge. I thought I'd try the free hand water coloring. I think I need to stick to stamping and water coloring the image. Here's my attempt: Watercolor flowers (F4A32 by ~CA~ - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

This was actually a card that resulted from a different challenge this past week. However I really like that I could use something that worked out for both.

So many ways to watercolor and all have wonderful, unpredictable effects. I did a direct, marker to stamp w/misting, layering technique.
