Pile It On! - Watercolors

***If you are interested in trying out for the Whimsy Stamps Design Team, please click HERE for more information....

Hello All,

Hope you are having a great weekend! Today is Sunday and that means a new challenge over at Pile It On! and this week we want to see you combine some challenges and add some watercolor to your creation. The PIO challenge this week is "water coloring." Please remember that your combined challenges must be current, not past challenges.

I made a card that uses Copics and Twinkling H2Os to fill the watercolor challenge. I also mixed in some other challenges from the week to complete the Pile It On challenge!

This is my new Sarah Kay image. I first colored with Copics, then went over the image with various Twinkling H2O paints and then when everything was dry, I highlighted here and there with a glitter pen in clear. Here's a close up on the image....


The layout is from this week's Stamps and Smiles challenge. Stamps and Smiles is also this week's PIO sponsor. The papers are SU! cardstock in Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, and Certainly Celery and the DP is BasicGrey Two Scoops. I chose this color combo to work with "Your Own Colors" from the challenge at Papertake Weekly. I love blues and greens, but very rarely use them together on a card.

The accents are eyelets to fit "eye eye" for the challenge at Cute Card Thursday. I also added some ribbons and bows and a Prima flower with a button center and charm. The buttons and bows fit the challenge at Kaboodle Doodles. The final element on this card is the sentiment tag, which fits with the "Tag It" challenge at Charisma Cardz!.

Thanks for stopping on by, hope you have a great Sunday! Happy stamping! :)
