Bloggers Challenge

Here it is, week 24 of the Bloggers Challenge! This weeks challenge was to use watercolor crayons on your card or project. There's so many great ways to use watercolor crayons, I could have made a ton of samples to share with you.

This first sample uses the Embossed Watercolor Crayon Technique from a past issue of the TJNL. Can you see how the letters were colored with watercolors - see how they shine...

When you open this up, you'll see the gift card on the inside. I made these to fit inside the Gift Card Envelopes.

Stamps - Big on Christmas, The Snowflake Spot
Ink - White, Red, Versamark
Other - WC Crayons, Black EP, Clear EP, Sticky Strip, Word Window Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, Sponge Dauber
Card Stock - Real Red, Confetti, Glorious Green

My next sample uses the Technicolor Watercolor Technique from the 12/07 TJNL. I just love the Fern Leaf Tooled Leather Background stamp from Starving Artistamps. I stamped the background image on my confetti with Night of Navy and sponged around the edges with my navy ink. I used shades of blue watercolor crayons to create my Technicolor Watercolor, and stamped my background with Navy ink, again I sponged around the edge. The flower image is also from Artful Inkables . I colored the flower image with markers, stamped on my confetti and sponged the edges with Navy ink.

Card Stock - Navy, Confetti, Bashful Blue
Ink - Navy
Other - WC Crayons, Markers, Sponge Dauber
Stamps - Starving Artistamps - Fern Leaf Tooled Leather Background
Flower - Artful Inkables

Have a great weekend!
