Playing in Challenges

Oh how fun is it to have some extra time to play in a couple of challenges!  Today I chose Freshly Made Sketches #256, along with [brand new to me] Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #87; masculine anything goes.

I tried a new technique for me, embossing over water color. It worked pretty good actually.  It certainly was easy enough [with the help of my MISTI].    If you emboss twice, it gives a nice raised effect with the textured water color paper.  I used Inspired By Stamping Just For You set, along with a MFT Jumbo Fish Tail Banner Die-namics die.  I enjoyed these challenges -- thanks!

 

See ya!


Thanks for stopping by~

Hi Vicki, what an eye-catching card! The colours are wonderful. That's the first thing that drew me in. You've done a great job of combining the two challenges, as well. The sketch lends itself very well to our masculine theme. I love the stitched banner on which you did the wonderful watercolouring. Adding the gold embossed sentiment...perfect. And those pretty blue sequins with the bead (?) in the centre are just the right finishing touch. Thanks so much for finding and joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

The gold embossing and the sequins really make this card look awesome against that blue background.

Although it looks simple this was not an easy sketch, but you aced it with your beautiful manly blue banner. Awesome! So happy you found the Watercooler Wednesday challenge blog and hope you'll come back for our weekly challenges again. It's so nice to make new friends and enjoy their talents!

Lovely card, Vicki! I love the stitched blue banner and the "raised" embossing really stands out. Thanks for joining us this week at Watercooler Wednesday Challenges. I look forward to seeing more of your wonderful creations.

Spectacular colours on your watercoloured tag! So often, we think masculine means dark colours. You have proved that it doesn't have to. Thanks for joining us at Watercooler Wednesday.

Beautiful tag, love your colour blue with the embossed sentiment.

Deborah said...

Gorgeous watercolouring, Vicki - I just love that deep blue! I'll have to try your technique of double heat embossing; it sure does stand out. Thanks for joining our Watercooler Wednesday masculine challenge! ~Deborah
