WWC289 - Heidi's Challenge: Anything Goes With a Masculine Twist

Welcome and a happy very smoky Wednesday to you all.  With so many fires burning in California, we are getting lots of smoke blowing into Reno.  I can't see my mountains!  But be that as it may, it's time for another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  Today Heidi is hosting our Anything Goes With a Masculine Twist.

I made a very simple birthday card as I have several coming up next month and I need cards for each and every one.  This is the Ship with Clouds stamp set from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  I added a wee bit of blue for the water and a wee bit of gray for the clouds and stamped the ship image in black.  I didn't color any part of the ship but I have some ideas percolating in my head that I'll share with you at another time.

WWC278 - Michelle's Challenge: Anything Goes With a Feminine Twist

It's time for another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  This week Michelle is hosting our Anything Goes With a Feminine Twist challenge.  It was an opportunity for me to play with one of my new silhouette stamps from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  You'll see more of those stamps in the future.

I stamped the image on white cardstock and colored it using my Prismacolor Colored Pencils.  The stamps is Rainy Day and I can see all kinds of seasons using this image.  I mounted the colored image panel on a layer of colored cardstock and for the life of me I don's remember what the color is.  I can't find the name of it anywhere but I like the way the image stands out on it.
