WWC307 – Heidi\’s Challenge: Anything Feminine Goes


Hello and welcome.  This is my design team card for this week\’s Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and Heidi is our hostess.

I love succulents and cacti and thought a row of them would make a cheerful get well card.  I colored with my trusty Copic markers.

We would love to see your card in our gallery.  You can reach the challenge website here.

Supplies:  Fiskars \”Stuck on You\” and Papertrey sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!

WWC217 – Michelle\’s Masculine "Anything Goes" Challenge

Hello and thank you for stopping by!  This week the theme for Watercooler Wednesday is Masculine \”Anything Goes\”.  Michelle is our hostess.

Once a quarter, I take a Copic class with Laura Griffin.  Recently, instead of coloring with Copics, we used Copic refills to make alcohol ink backgrounds.  I\’ve been playing with alcohol inks, but had never tried re-inkers.  Reinkers make a vibrant glossy creation!
For this card we layered on three different colors of Copic ink and used straws to move the ink around on the Yupo paper.  When we were satisfied with the result, we added a bit of gold.  Then we die-cut our sentiments (Papertrey \”Count My Blessings\”.  I used bold jewel tones that I thought would be suitable for sending to a man yet still fun and festive.

Ombre with Alcohol Inks

I have been somewhat obsessed with alcohol inks for the last month or so.  I used the \”side to side\” method where I put blending solution on yupo paper and then added three lines of alcohol ink  and tilted side to side until the colors were blended.  Lots of fun and very quick. You want to blend quickly so that the colors flow into one another.

Papertrey Yellow Sunshine Die
Sunshine Yellow, Sunset Orange, Flamingo

I set the yupo paper aside to dry and then die cut using Papertrey\’s Yellow Sunshine.  I added a quick sentiment and the card was done.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Addicted to CAS \”Ombre\” Challenge

AAA \”Made in Minutes\” Challenge

Casology \”Burst\” Challenge – I was going for a sun\”burst\” look with my alcohol inks.
