Watercolour Wednesday - For Teacher

This is week #1 of this series.  In the coming weeks, I'll be showing you four different cards that are just PERFECT for children to give to their teachers at different times of year.  Buy the set, and you're covered for the year!

My first card is a halloween card and my little painted lady is just too cute!

Since this is WATERCOLOUR Wednesday, she is, of course, water coloured.

I used my watercolour crayons (as usual) - don't know what I ever did without 'em! When I was done, I sponged around the outside edge of the punched image (used my 2 1/2" circle punch) using Concord Crush Ink.

My card base is Sahara Sand (which I'll use for all four cards) because I wanted a neutral shade and because I have LOTS of it - LOL!

I sponged the edges of each layer using matching ink for a little added interest and dimension.

 Here's some of the sentiment detail:
  • stamped in Concord Crush
  • Punched with Word Window Punch
  • Layered on Pumpkin Pie Modern Label Punch
  • Adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals ('cause you know me and those Dimensionals!)
And of course, the inside is finished with a strip of matching Designer Series Paper on Whisper White Cardstock.

What do you think?

  1. What an adorable card! You did an excellent job with the coloring! LOVE it!

  2. Should I be planning for Halloween already? LOL. This is a very cute card and it reminds me that I should dust off my crayons.

    Thanks for sharing,
