WWC170 Guest Designer Post - Love Letter In The Sand



I'm excited to say that I have been invited to participate as Guest Designer for Watercooler Wednesday Challenge WWC170 - Penny's Masculine "Anything Goes".

My husband and I are big beach lovers, regardless of the season or the weather. I wanted to make a card for him just because, and this will fit the bill perfectly.
I recently received this Stamp Lab stamp and sentiment with an order from STAMPlorations. As I was pondering how I would use it, I came up with the perfect idea for my card. I stamped the conch shell image on watercolor paper, and used a combination of Zigs and Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors to color it. I LOVE the way it came out. I am not tremendously fearless with   watercoloring. I have to admit that this one boosted my confidence a bit.

Anyway, please head over to the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge Blog to see what the lovely and talented Design Team has come up with to inspire you, create a card and join us in the gallery.
