Hello Everyone, Myrna here. This is my final Challenge of the month. The Design Team and I are challenging you to make a card using watercolouring. There are so many options available. Time to break out your watercolour pencils, pens, liquids, inks, etc and have fun. We look forward to your creations.
For my card, I used an adorable stamp called, “Gilmore” by Whipper Snapper Designs. I stamped him with Momento Ink, and coloured him with Derwent Inktense Watercolour Pencils. The papers and sequins are from my stash.

Every year I make 130 Christmas cards for the Belmont Long Term Care Home. It is my way of paying it forward for the fabulous care they provided my mother. I love to colour while watch TV so I will stamp numerous images and hand colour them with Copic Markers, Zig Water Colour Brushes, Derwent Inktenses Pencils, or Distress inks. Once I get a number completed, I then sit down and start to assemble my cards. No two cards are the same, While I may use the same image, I colour them differently, use a different card format, different card stock, etc. I also make Fall/Thanksgiving/Halloween, Easter/Spring, Valentine’s Day, Remembrance Day (for the veterans), plus birthday cards. It keeps me busy, and I really enjoy it. I also make cards for myself and friends. I dropped the cards off for distribution on December 1, 2016.
The GoC Design team is challenging you to make a card using two or more patterned papers. I used two patterned papers from my stash and layered them with my image. The snowman stamp is called, “Gilmor” by Whipper Snapper Designs. I hand coloured him using Copic markers, then fussy cut him out. The sentiment is a pre-printed vellum tag by DCWV.
Our challenge runs from July 3rd to July 15th
