Saturday/ Sunday Cards

I once again used the GKD stamp set Aloha for the Inspiration challenge over at STV. I obviously used the colors, with a brighter green. I don't care for sea green].  The layout I used is from Fridays Sketchers.  I liked the harder sketch - I have been doing CAS a lot lately.  [It's so]

This card accomplished 6 challenges!  Now, for me that's ALOT OF CHALLENGES!  The Dirty Dozen Ladies over at SCS are having their annual challenge contest.  [You have to be a member of SCS to see and play - sorry about that]  This card started with the sketch and the colors are from STV Color Challenge.  There will be a total of 33 challenges over the next week!  My goal - 1 card per day to cover all challenges... We'll see if I can accomplish that.  So DAY ONE is done...once again using GKD Aloha set.  I am seriously loving this versatile set!!

Now, I have to say that I loved this card~ yep clean and simple, loved the colors and than I realized... the challenges I made this card for were all from LAST week.  [My routine is to write down color challenges and sketches and than when I go to create, it is on my desk ready to see.] Last week went so crazy for me that I lost track of the week - hence using old challenges.  LOL - what a dweeb I am.  This particular card I used PaperTrey Ink supplies - Polka Dot Basics, Signature Greetings and the butterfly is the die cut that I stamped with MFP Chicken Scratch.

Okay my last card is a new (for me) coloring medium I attempted.  Susan over at Simplicity has challenged us to utilize water color crayons.  I am really not sure about this.  I see the potential and I think I kind of like this one,  however, does it looks messy to you all?  Too much water maybe?  Anyone out there use water crayons?  I just don't understand how to get them to work.  Any suggestions (or tutorials - visual here!) would be greatly appreciated.  I used Innovative Stamp Creations The Tropics stamp set.

BTW,  I am only 2 followers away from my goal of 100 - than I can have a blog candy give-a-way! Feel free to become a follower if you aren't - I would LOVE to hit my goal!!  Thanks for stopping by~~

Just became a follower. Thought I was already but just read your request and checked. Believe I am now the 100th. See so many of your cards but I guess I was on other them all.

Well, happy to oblige.....even though you already have a hundred Followers now.

My sister couldn't deal with her S
U watercolor crayons so threw them away. I like what you did with them though. The watercolor technique always looks a bit "messy" to me, but look at Brigit/Beggans entry on simplicity and see how artistic "messy" can look. It's the nature of watercoloring, I think, and the technique Susan used is just one of the watercoloring techniques.

(But don't take my word for anything because I'm a Crafter having fun, not an Artist. ) :-)
