CHF Challenge Chicks Monday

For today's CHF Challenge Monday we were asked to do something with water colours. I dug out my never been used Peerless water colour papers and I coloured in this new Saturday Evening Post Elk stamp. This stamp will be available Friday December 12th.

The Peerless water colour papers are so amazing to work with---the colours are very rich and of course I love the portability of the book. If you've never seen them, check out the link above.

For this card I paired the elk image with some papers from the Cosmo Cricket Mr. Campy line. I cut out the watercoloured image and did the "burnt edge" technique with distress inks.

Be sure to stop by and check out the projects created by: Julia, Kim, Dawn, Joanne, Kristine, Sherrie and Michele
