HELLO! This is the first of what I hope to be many Challenges.
This is supposed to be a fun way of showing your imagination!!
Leave a comment, with a link so people can view your card or craft item on your blog with relevance to the Challenge.
If you dont have a blog email me & I will put your card on mine.


This can be using Watercolour paints,pens,pencils. Or can be something inspired by an artist, or even include a painting by or of the artist.

These are some of mine.

They are using Whispers Stroke Dual watercolour Pens.

This is 'Watercolour Butterflies' I won the Craft Beautiful card competition Jan 2007 with this card.

This is using Watercolour pens on glossy Photo paper, it gives a great paint effect!

I love Iris',For this ATC I drew & painted the Iris' then went over some of the flowers with a Sakura Gelly roll pen

This Atc of Fans I stamped the image with Stazon on Vellum & used Watercolour pens .

This ATC is also stamped on Vellum with Stazon & coloured with pens and as Vellum loves to curl, it gives the wings of the Dragonflies a great dimension when they are cut out! I also went over the Watercolour pens with Sakura Gelly roll clear pen.

These are all inspirational Nicola, I love them all, you really are good with those water colour pens. I bought a case of whispers pens recently, the pens seem to be 3 different types but none of them say what they are on the pen. Do yours actually say 'watercolour' on the pen?

Hi Louly, I have posted some pic's of the pens, it doesnt say they are watercolour,only waterbased,I thought they did! ?
Hope this helps.
Thankyou for your lovely comments.xx

Inspiring work Nicola - I have those pens too, but don't use them much so now is my chance. I like the watercolour on photo paper, so will give that a try I think.
