Virginia's View; Kathy's 30 Day Coloring Challenge; Happy Little Stampers; Pinterest Inspired Challenge

Hi all ~
I have a few cards to share for four different challenges, but I promise to keep this post short and sweet! My first card is for Virginia's View Challenge #19 - All Things Colored and Kathy's 30 Day Coloring Challenge



Lots of masking and coloring with my Zig Clean Color Markers.

 I really love this color combo, and wanted to create something that was CAS...so there you have it ~ My 'short and sweet' post!




I hope everyone's week is off to a great start ~ Thank you so much for stopping by,

Beautiful cards Barb, love the flowers in your watercolour. I am so enjoying using them myself. and the Christmas Wreath that looks so delicate, wow.

Wow, wow, wow. Love your wonderful cards--amazing coloring. I just love how you masked all those flowers on your first card. It is exactly the card I would want to make if I were not always in such a lazy mood. And, I just adore your winter wonderland village you made for HLS Sketch--thanks for playing along there.

Oh my goodness! These are all amazing! I keep scrolling up and down trying to figure out which I love the most! I think it's the last one! Oh that is so beautiful! The wreath is just spectacular! Not to take away from the others! They are outstanding too! ((Hugs))

beautiful cards!!
I'm doing my first GIVEAWAY over at my blog, be sure to check it out!! :)

Shona Chambers said...

Well, haven't you been busy!! I love your colouring with the W&W flowers and your masking is amazing. Your snow scene is gorgeous and the blending incredible. And your wreath for the Pinterest challenge is such a good idea and the flowers/leaves you used go so well with the photo. I've finally had more of a chance to try out the water colour paper is it really is fantastic. Even Phoebe won't use my old stuff anymore, will only use your's for her cards. So will have to see if I can track some down....
