WCMD Plus

I recently pulled out the beautiful PTI Botanical Blocks IV stamp set to enter ITP PTI Melissa's Fab Friday via IG.  
I gold embossed the image & did some loose watercoloring with Zigs.  I added gold Stickles & used a panel of Classic Kraft for the mat.  
The same Zigs were used to watercolor the sentiment from the same set & I mounted it with foam tape.
Love that ITP & PFS had challenges for WCMD.  Unfortunately, I forgot about the ITP challenges on IG until the last minute.  I had 2 hrs to enter, so picked the first challenge which was a color combo of blues, pinks & grays.  Botanical Blocks IV was still on my table, so I black embossed the holly image & again used Zigs for watercoloring.
Gotta say, I love the blue holly leaves with pink berries.  I used a gray marker to color the thin frame & attached the piece to a lighter blue textured cardstock mat. 
Decided not to add a sentiment, so I can use this as a note card or put a sentiment on the inside.  I'm also entering SSS WCMD & WAW.

The PFS WCMD Challenges are open until the 11th.  So far I've made 3 cards--each for 2 of the challenges.  I entered Challenge 3 Stripes & Challenge 9 CAS through IG with this card using 3 images from Dainty Blossoms--one of my favorite die sets!  
I colored them with 3 Copics which I also used to color 3 stripes cut with the Color Block Stripes die.  Great way to use up some of my white scraps.  The sentiment from Delicate Wreath was stamped in Memento Toffee Crunch & I added Wedding Dress Pico Embellisher dots.  I'm also entering The Snippets Playground.


Next is my entry for Challenge 2 Thank You & Challenge 7 Rainbow.  I used one of my newest dies, Layered Wreath.  I die cut the wreath from white cardstock & the separate little pieces from vellum.
The little flowers included in the set were colored with Copics, arranged in groups of 3 & embellished with a dot of Wedding Dress Pico Embellisher.  I attached the wreath to a square of vellum & stamped the sentiment from Delicate Wreath.  I'm also entering Double D.
Last is my entry for Challenge 5 Slimline cards & Challenge 6 No Stamping.  I used Slim Braided Circles Panel die, Classic Holiday Words dies & Christmas Wishes patterned papers.  
I've been hoarding the paper pad for a long time, but fun to use some of the papers for this card.  The top layer of the words was die cut from red glitter tape & the shadow from vellum.  
Finished off with Wedding Dress Pico Embellisher.  I'm also entering Allsorts.  
Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  If your blog address is in your profile or comment, I will visit you.
