OWH VCMP Challenge #2

Wow! This was a challenging challenge! We are to use the O - W - H in Operation Write Home to inspire our creativity. What a great idea!

Can you tell how I used the challenge? For the O, I did an outdoors scene, for the W I used watercoloring technique and for the H I made it into a hello card. 

For the background I used watercolor paper and my Stampin Up reinkers. I spritzed the paper with water and then using my Aquapainter, I dripped ink onto the paper and just kind of scribbled it back and forth until I got the look I was going for. I really liked how this one turned out and I loved how relaxing it was to do the watercoloring. I will have to remember that for the future.

Thanks for stopping by!

OWH Virtual Cardmaking Party 2013 Challenge #1

Hi all!

I am so excited that I actually get to take part in making some cards for the Virtual Cardmaking Party! Normally on Labor Day weekend, I'm back trying to get homework done for school. But this year, my class doesn't start until Tuesday so I'm FREE.

I was excited to see Nancy's sketch and challenge first thing this morning because I really am in the mood to start on Christmas cards for our heros. And this one gave me the opportunity to use some paper that I still have on hand from last year.

I looked all over for my 1" Square punch but can't find it anywhere. Do you suppose I really don't have one? I had the CM one for years but was sure I bought a SU one. Oh well, another thing for my list.

I will have to come back and edit my supplies list. I cannot remember the name of this DSP. Does anyone remember?
