WWC261 – Kath\’s Challenge: Anything Goes With a Feminine Twist

Hello and welcome!  This week is our always popular \”feminine\” challenge at Watercooler Wednesday.  Kath is our hostess.

I made this card for my sister\’s birthday.  I heat embossed,  watercolored then die-cut this beautiful floral image from Altenew.  I used watercolor paper for the painted panel and the card base as I liked the continuity of texture across the card.  I am not sure you can tell in the photograph, but I really like the textured look in person.   I also went with a brown sentiment for a more natural look.

WWC209 – Marsha\’s Masculine "Anything Goes" Challenge

Masculine cards are usually the most difficult for me and I needed one for my brother\’s birthday.  I love dragonflys and thought it would be fun to emboss a series across the page in Nuvo Hot Chocolate Embossing powder.

Last summer I won first place in AAA 4th Birthday CAS Challenge and the prize was a generous gift certificate to Visible Image\’s shop.  I did not have any of their stamps and I picked out 4 sets including this one called Live in the Moment.

I colored the wings with Copic markers (Y17, YG01, YG03). I then made an accent strip using Altenew Espresso Crisp Dye Ink and mounted it on a Kraft card.

The Male Room Anything Goes Challenge  I think the images and colors are very masculine.  And for the optional twist, I did not use any designer paper.  I did hand ink the espresso accent strip.
