Sparkle & Shine Challenge: Watercolor Dots

*second post of the day. for the winnie & walter rerun, please go here*

Hello everybody! It's time for a new Sparkle & Shine Challenge. This time we had this pretty image to work with:

So many possibilities, don't you think? I love the watercolors and here is what I came up with:

I created the stripes on a panel of watercolor paper, using a wet brush to pick up color from Derwent Inktense Pencils and simply painting a stripe of every color, creating a rainbow. Then I trimmed the panel, layered it with a strip of black card stock and adhered it to my card base. I stamped and colored the cute panda, cut it out and adhered it with foam tape. Then I die-cut the word from card stock and fun foam and adhered it, too. Finally I added matching sequins.

I hope you'll join us this time for your chance to win a gift card to Pretty Pink Posh!

Thanks for stopping by!



Winnie & Walter Rerun: Moonlight

Hello sweet Winnie & Walter friends! Today we are concentrating on an "older" stamp set that I love very much. The set "Moonlight" provides you with all the images/sentiments you need to create fun fall and Halloween cards. I recently saw a cute picture of Halloween balloons on Pinterest and thought it would be a good idea for my card. So I combined another favorite set of mine, "The Party", to create this:

I started with a panel of watercolor paper and stamped the balloons and strings. Then I stamped the faces and the mask onto them. Now I colored the balloons using Copics. Using an ink blending tool, I inked the bottom part of the panel with green ink. I applied some black ink droplets and stamped the sentiment before adhering the panel to my card base.
I hope you like it! You'll find more ideas on the Winnie & Walter blog today. Thanks for visiting!
