Submitted Cards

I submitted a few cards to the latest Paper Crafts Magazine call and they didn't get picked. So, here they are!

This one was submitted for the nautical challenge:

And these 2 were for the water-technique challenge:

The flower one is made with liquid food coloring on wet watercolor paper. Of the 3, this is the one I thought most likely to get chosen because it's an interesting technique and I LOVE how the resulting card looks. Oh well, better luck next time!! :)

  1. I love the flowers on the water technique card, they look like they are from right out of a wildflower garden!

  2. These are all fantastic! Great work.

  3. Each one of them is creative with such love!! Love the artistic take on the challenge! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Very creative cards. I love that last one. What a great idea to mix food coloring with water as a misting spray. Love it!
