Cuttlebug Be Inspired 21

Good morning are you ready to be inspired? It's time for another Cuttlebug Be Inspired Challenge.

Today we are working with watercolors. So break out your watercolor pencils, reinkers, or stamp pads. Whatever medium you have to work with is fine.

I used my stamp pads (pressing them against the closed lids to adhere ink to it) and my aquapainter.

This is one of my all-time favorite images to watercolor. It's Seaside Sketches from Stampin Up and I absolutely love it.

I stamped the image on Fabriano 90 lb watercolor paper with Black Pigment ink and heat embossed with black embossing powder then watercolored using turquoise, summer sun, cranberry, sahara sand, caramel, blush and chocolate chip.

I almost always pair this image with the Swirls folder because it makes me think of ocean waves.

Add the Frills Border Folder, ribbon with hardware and a punched border and this is the end result.

If you like this you're sure to love what the Cuttlebug Challenge team did with this one. Why don't you pop on over and check it out. C'mon, you know you want to! *Grin*

Better yet, why don't you join us in the Cuttlebug Challenge! C'mon, you know you want to! It's fun and you could win one of those nice blinkies to add to your page telling everyone you were a Be Inspired Winner. Pretty cool huh?

If you do the challenge, be sure to post a link to it on the Cuttlebug Challenge site and add it to Mr. Linky. Don't worry! He's friendly.

Have a tiggerific day and do us all a favor. Stamp something! You know you want to! *Giggle*

Thanks for stopping by! TTFN
