Hey, great timing!! I started the sketch challenge using watercolor paper yesterday but gave up! Maybe I'll finish it for BOTH challenges!!

I was up for 36 hours straight yesterday after working all night........feeling much more creative today after sleeping a little!!

Good morning everyone! My server is working very sparadically this morning and when it does it is soooo slow. I finally managed to get this quick card made. I never use watercolor paper....just once before I believe so I really hope to try it a few times for this challenge. If you don't have SU watercolor paper...you can just buy some watercolor paper in the art section at Michael's. HTH.

Here is my card...

Mon Amie

Thanks Lindsey for filling in for me this morning! Stay tuned next week for more new on the upcoming WT100 challenge!

Well, I didn't have the watercolor paper, or shimmery white, so I tried with Whisper white. I am a new beginner, and not too familiar with the watercoloring technique, but thought I would try it! Here is my card!

Great challenge Lindsey, hope that Julia gets her computer fixed, I hate to think what i'd do if mine wasn't working, might have to cook or clean. (gasp)

--Today I want to do a softer card, my two cards yesterday were a little bright and busy for me. I also wanted to use my Basic Grey paper again, but this time just a little.

Thanks for Lookin' http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...48082&cat=7207

I've actually been playing with watercolor paper quite a bit this week. Since I'm at work and haven't had a chance to make a card yet today I'll pretend I made these 2 cards today instead of earlier this week....

I give up trying to take a good picture....IRL, the ribbon matches and the watercoloring looks better. Oh well! Thanks for looking.

I see some people don't have watercolor paper or shimmer so check this out and maybe you'll have the supplies for it.
I've tried it and it works fine!

I can't wait for the search function in the gallery to be fixed so it'll be easier to look at what everyone else is making! Guess I'll start by checking all the links posted in this thread.

Anyhow, here's mine:

I'm definitely going to try this one! I have WC paper and thought I'd use it a lot but I hardly ever touch it, so this is a good challenge for me. Those samples are lovely!

Here is mine- I used the watercolor paper under the giraffe--- and then rubbed it in craft ink to "age" it and make it make the background! My first try so hopefully I will do better next week! http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=15285

I love watercolor paper, don't know why I haven't been using it, guess because it was out of sight. --I just had to do another quite card, still recovering from my bold cards I made yesterday. LOL

Thanks for lookin' http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...48231&cat=7270

Here's mine today, finally. Boy these runs to the doctors office sure has to quit -- this one took the whole morning (and my car did automatically turn itself into the Michaels parking lot too -- imagine that):

Thanks Lindsey, fun challenge!!!!

Just uploaded to the gallery. Stickles take forever to dry. I watercolored on shimmery white paper as I felt that paper would be best for this card:

I uploaded this one just a couple of days ago - don't look if you don't want to see anything that wasn't made fresh like bread today. I just love this house mouse stamp though. TFL!

Thanks for subbing, Jacksonbelle (love that avatar with Willie), and for using one of my stand-bys -- watercolor paper! Yay!

I live in Oklahoma where we are in the middle of some bizarre weather patterns (DS has been out of school all this week and will be out tomorrow due to ice, and they're predicting we could get a foot or more of snow beginning tomorrow evening...). Bad for going outside the house, but great for getting some stamping done.

I needed to come up with a birthday design and wanted something Spring-like, so here is

Birthday Bouquet

Thanks for looking, and I hope you and yours are safe and warm.

Have been wanting to do this card for my son for some time and figured watercolor paper for a water turtle would be perfect!
