Watercooler Wednesday WWC 82 - Libby's "Trees" Theme Challenge

For this challenge I used the "Lovely as a Tree"stamp set.   I love this stamp set.  It is so versatile.  I used a copper foil for the first layer along with my decorative labels.  I then stamped my tree and embossed it with copper embossing powder.  Walla!  It looks stunning.   This card could also be used for Christmas.   Here is my first picture:

Watercooler Wednesday WWC81 - Gail's Color Challenge

What amazing color choices Gail!   I used an old but cutie stamp set for this challenge.  I didn't have any cardstock in Daffodil Delight, so used my marker to color the raindrops, then used Peekaboo Peach for the nose, ears, feet and tail.  I also combined Daffodil Delight and Peekaboo Peach to watercolor the flower.   My Pear Pizzazz completed the grass and flower stalks.

Watercooler Wednesday WWC 80 - Heidi's Clean & Simple  Theme:  Water

The Watercooler Artists have some beautiful posts of the "Clean & Simple" cards.   They were all so different and I loved them all.  My card is an underwater theme, with lots of air bubbles going up to the surface.  I used watercolor paper and with my aqua painter and inks was able to create water below the surface and highlights from above.   I then stamped the sea fan, fish and added bubbles  to keep the card front in its simplicity.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  Peekaboo Peach, Watercolor Paper
Ink:  Dapper Denim, Sweet Sugarplum, Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo
Stamp Sets:  Million to One, By the Tide, Itty Bitty Background

A quick and simple card to do and can be dressed up more by adding colored pearls for the bubbles.  Thanks for stopping by.  I love the comments for each challenge.  They are very inspiring and encourages me to improve my stamping skills.  Until next time, take care, and Happy Stamping!    Heather :)
