Default TLC174 - Hittin' the Bottle

Iím your Guest Hostess for this week. Beth is off camping with the Girls Scouts, spending some quality time with her daughter.

I looked through the list of different techniques for the challenges, and didnít find anything for one of my favorite techniques. I have seen a number of threads recently on water coloring techniques v. Copic Markers. Now I will be the first to admit, that I use the Copic Markers and they are the first things I reach for. I donít know why, except that they are handy and quick. With the conversations in other threads about watercolor crayons, pencils, etc., I have see little mention of water coloring with reinkers.

So this is my challenge for you today Ė WATERCOLOR WITH REINKERS. If you donít have an assortment of reinkers, then you can squish your pads to the lids and pick your color up from the lids.

Please use keyword TLC174, when uploading your card.

My sample

TLC174 Gallery


If you notice that my card has the wrong keyword, -- well it's a bit early for me!!!!!! It's been corrected.

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.
Your done!

Well I just noticed that I left off details on my card and have gone back to edit to add them. It's just too darn early for me this morning! Sorry for the mistakes and hopefully they will all catch up soon!

Oh, good. An early post. I've never colored with ink refills before. Guess I need to try this. Thanks, Sherry.

I have all of 3 re-inkers and they are all Staz-On, so I think I'll be using the squished pad method, LOL. Sounds like fun, never done it before. Better get a pack of baby wipes handy, though.
Thanks

I started a gift set last night...and it was a perfect challenge for me to make a half a dozen cards:

Though admittedly, I've stamped/embossed 6 cards...and still need to watercolor 5 of them!

Great challenge!! I don't have the reinkers, but I saw someone the other day demonstrating the squishing the pads onto acetate instead of the lids. That looked interesting. So I may give that a try. Thanks for hostessing.
