Inky Paws Challenge #142 Reminder


Don't forget - 

There's still time to play along with our latest Inky Paws Challenge!

Have you had a chance to make a card for our latest Inky Paws Challenge

Here'a a refresher.

Create a project using watercolors!

Today I'm sharing some more inspiration for our current challenge! 

Kit Tea Cat by Diane features Caffeinated Cats, Newton's Mug, Frames & Flags, and Circle Frames by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #cardmaking, #teacards, #watercolorcards, #catcards
Diane Morales heat embosses the full-front image from the Caffeinated Cats stamp set in white and uses a trio of watercolors to create a colorful backdrop.  She uses the scallop-edged frame die from the Frames & Flags die set. For her center piece she die cuts a scalloped circle using the Circle Frames die set and adds the darling tea-lovin' kitty from the Newton's Mug stamp and die set. The white embossed sentiment really stands out against the red mug!  Tea-riffic!

Being a unicorn by Sue T. features Believe in Unicorns, Sky Borders, and
Sue T. uses her water colors to create layers of clouds from the Sky Borders die in the pattern of a rainbow!  This colorful setting is perfect for her darling unicorn from the Believe in Unicorns stamp and die set to play amid!  Unicorns and rainbows make for a magical combination!

Have a blast by Amy features Cosmic Newton, Slimline Frames & Portholes, and Land Borders by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #cardmaking, #watercolorcards, #catcards
Amy Tollner's brilliant and bold watercolor background is truly amazing!  She adds glittery stars and specks of gold to turn her sky into the Milky Way.  She adds three images from the Cosmic Newton stamp set and cuts using the coordinating die set. Doesn't Newton look spectacular in his green spaceship while his friend spies on the astronaut floating through space?  By using the Slimline Frames & Portholes die set, Amy is able to capture the full scene grounded by using the Land Borders die set.  

Dig in by Claire features Newton's Picnic by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #watercolorcards, #catcards, #cardmaking
Claire Lamb's splash of bright yellow watercolors is a perfect backdrop for this hungry kitten looking for a snack.  That naughty kitten is from the Newtons' Picnic stamp set and cut using the coordinating die set.  Claire's fabulous coloring and the addition of those little ants makes for a bright, fun card!  Dig in, indeed!

I whale always love you by Debbie features Tides of Love, Paradise Palms, Framework, and Sea Borders by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #watercolorcards, #cardmaking,
 Debbie Owens brings us a tropical delight beginning by using watercolors with the Waves stencil for a watery effect. She then die cuts using the Sea Borders die set to create some waves for the sweet whale from the Tides of Love stamp set.  In the background, she has created a sunset using watercolors with the silhouette of an island and palm trees from the Paradise of Palms stamp set in the background. She uses the small, scallop-edged die from the Framework die set from Kraft card stock to frame her scene.  A sweet way to send some love!
