It’s my pleasure to guest host the Watercolor Wednesday Challenge (WCW018) on Splitcoast. The technique I chose is Watercolor on embossed paper. I thought it looked interesting but easy enough for everyone.

Since I wanted to make a Halloween card, I chose a couple of Halloween themed embossing folders to go w/ my cute little die cut owl. I embossed the large bg w/ the wordy folder then followed the instructions on the video using bright, Halloween colors of my Peerless watercolors. After it dried, I thought the words didn’t really pack the punch I wanted so I inked the inside of the folder w/ black soot Distress oxide ink & embossed the watercolored bg again. Much better! Now the words really show up.

I did the same for the little orange Wicked strip & perched my owl on it.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats to Kelly, the newest Featured Stamper (FS705) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the big feather but used different images & dies & made mine a rainbow feather instead of monochrome. 

For my card, I used only one part of a two part, watercolor image. Instead of using the watercolor part, I opted to color my feather in using Copics. I really like the almost zentangle look of this feather & thought it would look great w/ a rainbow of colors filling it in. The stitched frame was stamped using 3 light colors of ink & a few gems were added along w/ the greeting underneath. 

Here are the Copics I used on the feather.(That’s a YG09 at the bottom, in case you can’t see it.)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats to Lisa, the newest Featured Stamper (FS704) on Splitcoast! She has a beautiful gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the squiggly frame & balloons, but since I didn’t have a lady I could put w/ the balloons, I used a scooter & a tiny bird w/ presents.

After stamping the birthday frame, I die cut the pieces of the scooter, flowers, grass, mountains & balloons. The tiny bird & presents were colored & die cut. It’s part of a much larger image so I just trimmed that part away. The mountains & road were attached & the scooter is popped up a bit on top of them. I used some of the green Color Fuse inks to vary the colors of the mountains.

Here are the Copics I used for the little bird w/ the presents.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
