SIP Challenge #1 – Reminder!

It was rainy and dreary here all day yesterday. A good day to be at work! LOL! After dinner I came home and chatted with Andrea on Skype and made a few cards. Not a very exciting evening but they are welcome every once in a while. My friend Kim got good news yesterday, she was approved by the board for her new apartment! That means that she will be moving in the next few weeks! Time to start picking paint colors and furniture!

My post for today is a reminder for the Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! There is still time to play and add your card to the wonderful ones that are already in the gallery! Here is another look at the challenge…

SIP Any Challenge 1

For my second dose of inspiration I decided to make a watercolor color card using some new pens that I recently acquired! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card stock and the background is a piece of Canson 140lb Cold Press Watercolor Paper. The main panel is another piece of the watercolor paper. I stamped the images from the Clearly Besotted Sweet Rose Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versa-Mark and heat embossed them with White Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. To do my watercoloring I used the Zig Clean Color Brush Pens and an Waterbrush. I first wet the area that I was going to color and then used the pens to fill it in. After I had finished and let it dry I heat embossed the sentiment from the same set in Ranger Gold Embossing Powder. The panel is then adhered to some Fun Foam and then adhered to the base. A few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins add a little sparkle. I absolutely love the Zig Watercolor Pens, they are nice and easy to work with and the results are fantastic. I hope that you enjoyed your second dose of inspiration for the first Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge. Go on over to the blog and check out what else the Design Team has come up with along with all of the great cards already in the gallery! Thank you so much for your visit today! Have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂
