I combined two challenges to create this card:

Colour Q Challenge #354:

Happy Little Stampers August Anything Goes with Dies:

When I saw the sketch I thought of my new to me border die from Penny Black so this came together easily. I love the color combination of this week's ColourQ Challenge. I used the Thanks die from Winnie & Walter for the sentiment.

Simply the Best

I love how this came out - I used freezer paper for a mask. I cut the freezer paper with the PaperTrey butterfly die and ironed it onto the watercolor paper.  I then watercolored around and over the mask using the wet on wet watercolor technique.  I carefully lifted the mask off when the panel was dry and stamped the sentiment (from Technique Tuesday). I added a few gems and mounted it onto aqua mist card stock and added a thin black strip to make the watercolor panel pop.

I am submitting this to:

Watercolored Mums

The color challenge at SCS is peach, watermelon and pear pizzazz. I embossed this PaperArtsy flower stamp with gold embossing powder and then watercolored them with my Zig Clean Color Brush pens.  After coloring them I trimmed off the right side of the panel and overlaid that panel on top of some gold and white striped paper from PaperTrey.

I will submit this to Kathy's 30 Day Coloring Challenge and to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge which is Anything Goes.

It's that time of year, my favorite week at Splitcoaststampers (SCS), Dare to Get Dirty. Everyday for a week there are several challenges created by the Dirty Dozen and Alumna for the SCS Fan Club members to play in. There are prizes and lots of fun to be had. I am not hosting any challenges but I have made samples for many of them. Below are the cards I created for 2 of today's challenges:

PaperTrey Stamp a Faire - Master Color Recipes

Today I only completed one more of the PTI SAF challenges. This one was the Master Color Recipe.

I chose this recipe:

Here is my card:

All products used are from PaperTrey. The main panel was made with a stencil and the colors listed in the recipe. I used an ink blending tool to color the stencil. The sentiment is a die cut. Before cutting the sentiment I backed the card stock with Stick It so I could easily adhere it to the card front.
