Watercooler Challenges WWC 93 - Deborah's Color Challenge

Welcome to another challenge with our Watercooler Artists.  This week it's a terrific Color Challenge hosted by Deborah Smart.  The colours are perfect for those Christmas cards which everyone is starting to create:  Whisper White, Real Red, Soft Suede, Old Olive and Basic Black.

Sheri Lee is a Guest designer for this week's challenge, and I hope you visit her site to see her beautiful card and the color challenges.  Loved your Penguin, Sheri!

Deborah, these are such beautiful color choices for a Christmas card.  Today, I am using a stamp set "Banners for Christmas", and  the "Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies.  I loved the Christmas card using the stamp set in the Holiday Catalogue, and thought I would try my version of it.   A fair amount of watercoloring, but worth it.

  1. Oh my goodness, Heather, where to begin... This is a "wow" card. Yes, the watercolouring was worth every minute because that frame of greenery and berries you've created is fabulous. And let's not forget the beautiful centrepiece, the banner itself. There is not one thing I would change, Heather. From the wonderful outside to the nicely detailed inside, this card is perfect. Thanks for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

  2. Wonderful card, Heather! Thanks for joining us this week at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

  3. Beautiful card Heather. Love the watercolouring! Thanks for playing along with the Watercooler Wednesday's colour challenge. :)

  4. Terrific card, Heather! I like how you used all of the colours in the challenge, yet kept your card very soft looking, thanks to your watercolouring. So glad you joined my colour challenge for Watercooler Wednesday! ~Deborah

  5. Very sweet card Heather! You did a great job with these colors! Thanks for joining us at Watercooler Wednesday this week for Deborah's color challenge!

  6. Great card Heather. I like that you used the picture on page 10 of the catalogue for your inspiration and then made it your own with your colour change up. This is a great way to get the fun and experience of a stamp and framelet set. Well done.
