OWH Midweek Throwdown Challenge

The Midweek Throwdown Challenge for Operation Write Home is to make an Any Occasion No Sentiment card.  This actually worked out perfect for me because I was working on a card and couldn't figure out where I was going with it!

I went to the RubberStamp Convention at the Carson Community Center last week and bought my 1st La La Land Stamp so I used her... "Dress Up Marci"! I colored her with watercolor pencils and used scraps and embellishments I had scattered in my craft corner, and added some pearls with an Ice White Pearl Pen!

 Hope you are enjoying this week's challenge!

WaterColor Pencils

I love seeing all the cards colored with water color pencils and Copic Markers that I finally decided to try it myself! I bought some pencils at the Ontario Scrapbook Expo this past weekend and here is my 1st attempt....
I used a digi from one of my favorite artists, Sliekje, Staedtler Water Color Pencils, and Stampin' Up Blender Pens. I haven't put it on a card yet... just playing!!

Just a quick post tonight... I made these mini clipboards for the boutique coming up on November 8th (will post address and time when I get the details!)...

and here's a close up of the 2nd one... wanted you to get a good look at the bling!!
I made the flowers by spiral cutting circles and then rolling the spirals... Here's a link to the video: Slater Dee's Circle Rosettes. I hope it works! If not, just "youtube" Slater Dee and look for the Circle Rosettes tutorial :) I used some Stickles for the glittery look, and then just cut up some scraps to make little note cards so it could actually be used for more than just being pretty!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
