Watercolor Challenge #22

Are you ready for another Watercooler Challenge?  This one is all about watercolor and silhouette.  While I'm not sure you would consider this one a true silhouette given it simply fills in the blanks with color, in all honesty, this is the one that turned out the best.  I can't begin to tell you how many times I started a project and made some kind of glaring mistake.  So, I simplified everything and you see the result below.

We would love to see what you create using the challenge.  Be sure to link your project by Friday, April 24th at 7:30 a.m. Mountain Daylight Time.  You could be the next winner!

Stamp Set:  Butterfly Basics; Inks:  Crushed Curry, Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz, Wisteria Wonder, VersaMark Embossing Ink; Card Stock:  Basic Black, Watercolor Paper, Wisteria Wonder; Accessories & Tools:  Basic Black Embossing Powder, 3/8" Mossy Meadow Stitched Satin Ribbon, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Glue Dots, SNAIL Adhesive, Dimensionals, Heat Tool, Stampin' Trimmer

The inspiration comes from the current Watercooler Challenges.

Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,



  1. What a beautiful soft card Marsha. I really enjoyed the colour combination and how you've layered the flower over top of it. I'm totally in love with the Butterfly Basics Stamp set but I find that flower a bit intimidating. Seeing it used on your card as a silhouette, encourages me to use it. Your watercolour background makes me visualize the sun breaking through the clouds and shining down on the flower garden. The ribbon is a really nice touch too. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks so much, Penny! Butterfly Basics is a favorite and I'm so glad it carried over into the new catalog.
