BGC#57 - Watercolor challenge Karen

BGC#57 - Watercolor challenge Karen


Hello my crafty friends!!  Glad to be back with another challenge!!  My team members have been crankin out some truly BEAUTIFUL watercolor projects!!!  I have also been loving all of your entries!! 
My 3 daughters all work with watercolors!!  I start all of my children off with this medium!  It is so enjoyable and easy to use!!  I can't wait to see what each of you comes up with!
Have fun, Karen 

Challenge Guidelines : 


Make a card , LO or a 3D project (strictly paper crafts )

You must use Watercolors in the project ! 

Go CAS, fully layered, color an image or create a completely new design of your own with watercolors! Just have fun. ... with watercolors! 

Dates :  16th Aug - 31st Aug.


Here is where I started......
I started with a sheet of watercolor paper.  I had intended to make a card but it turned into a mini album.  I had some of the gorgeous new Heidi Swapp cards that have the watercolor look and I wanted to include those.  My watercolors were rather shabby since it appeared that one or more of my children got into them. Oppps......thats a no-no!  I decided to try my gelatos. 

They make beautiful vibrant watercolors!  They can be used so many ways but I put down water on my mat then rubbed in a little color to make my watercolors.




I used the watercolor sheet as the cover and painted a soft version of the colors from blue to yellow. I used a digi image that I found and used my copics to color it ( second image I have colored so I'm still learning) It looks a lot like my oldest daughter and her beau.  So this turned into a book for her to put their pics in!! Hence the miss-mosh of style and papers because that's how she likes it!!



Here are some of the inside pages.



I used of the project life cards for hidden journaling and a few in pockets for photo mats.


I used the same watercolors on some of the embellishments.


Thanks for looking! Keep those watercolor creations coming!!

BGC#57 Watercolor card with zubmomi!



Hello friends!  Welcome to another post for the BGC# 57 'Watercolor'. 
Our lovely DT Aneta  has given us this amazing theme 
and we are loving the awesome entries submitted by you so far  :)


Challenge Guidelines : 
 Make a card , LO or a 3D project (strictly paper crafts )

You must use Watercolours in the project ! 

Go CAS, fully layered, color an image or create a completely new design of your own with watercolors! Just have fun. ... with watercolors! 

Dates :  16th Aug - 31st Aug.

Here is my card for this challenge:




I have stamped the roses and leaves randomly on the edges of a watercolor paper using distress inks and then sprayed water over the paper to activate it. I then used watercolors to paint the roses and let them blend naturally by adding more layers on top without allowing the first layer to dry. 

I did the same with the leaves.



 Another view:




Finally, I added a wash of blue color in some areas for the balance and added the sentiment.



Hope you like my card :)

Please link your projects here.


Take care :)

BGC#57 - Watercolor cards with PJ

Hello my lovely readers !
I am loving all the creations you are giving us so far in our challenges!
aren't you enjoying our new theme ?
Well i totally did ! :) lets check out the guidelines again

So ok :) here is what i made 
 There are many ways to go about this challenge . 
I am demonstrating two , Stamped image coloring and freehand watercolour painting !

 In the above card i have stamped the floral image on watercolor paper . 
Then i went ahead and colored it using watercolors and added a wash of blue all around the image. once it was dry i stamped my sentiment and the arrow stamp in the corners.

 For this card i just went free hand ! i did some colored circles and random shapes to make my flowers and created some green spaces in between to make my leaves. once it was dry i went over the whole thing forming leaves and flowers with my waterproof black pen. It then formed this bouquet . Its not perfect but i think i like this one better than the perfectly stamped image card. :)

What are your thoughts ? I would love to hear them :)

BGC#56- Nautical Card with zubmomi!


       Hello friends!  Welcome to another post for the BGC# 56- Nautical Challenge.
Our lovely DT member, Karen has given us this amazing theme and we are loving the 
awesome entries submitted by you so far :)

Challenge Guidelines : 
  • Make a Card , LO or paper crafted project with the Nautical theme .
  • By Nautical we mean - something concerning navigation in the sea , sailors, maritime, or the sea. Go for elements like anchors , lifebuoys , ships , lighthouses , fishing nets , navigation gear , compass etc.
  • Dates : 1st - 15th Aug

Sponsors 2014 



Here is my nautical themed card for the challenge:



I made the background by embossing and inking the cardstock and layering patterned paper on it. 
The main focus of my card is the circular window/ porthole.

I have tried to create a small scene inside the window by gluing the colored sand for the beach and waves. Between the waves is a small ship which can also be moved. 
The sentiment is stamped. 


Hope you like my inspiration.


Please link your projects here.



Take care :)
