Memory Box Challenge #13- Watercolor

Challenge icons

We are taking a brief break from the Blog Blitz to start a new Memory Box Challenge.  We  hope you will play along with the theme through the end of the month.  You will even  have the chance to win prizes!  Thank you so much to everyone who created such wonderful bird projects for last month's challenge.

The winner of our blog badge for last month's bird challenge is  Cornelia from the Stempel Spass blog.  Her bird-themed holiday card was absolutely stunning:


The lucky winner of the draw for the monthly prize is Deanna from Deanna's Papercrafts.  Congratulations!

Please contact me at [email protected] to claim your prize.

Want to play along in this month's challenge?  The rules are simple - just create a project following the theme, use at least one Memory Box stamp or die on your project and link your entry to this blog post.  You can make a card, a scrapbook page, a home decor item, etc..  To encourage participants with various levels of stamping experience, one entry will be selected at random to win a prize. Enter as many times as you want, but your name will only be entered once into the random prize drawing.   In addition, the design team will select their favorite entry to  be highlighted on the Outside the Box blog and that designer will receive our winner badge to proudly display on their blog. 

You don't have to have a blog in order to participate.   You can upload your project to any online gallery and link it to this post.   In fairness to other players, we reserve the right to remove entries that do not use at least one Memory Box product.  You are also welcome to link your design to other challenges.  Feel free to grab our badge to post on your blog post or side bar.

Watercolor cards are so beautiful and there are so many options- markers, paints, sprays, pencils, etc.  For this month's challenge, the task is to create something with watercolor somewhere in the project.  The possibilities are endless.  You could do a watercolor background, color an image with watercolor paints, watercolor die cuts.... or however you interpret the theme.  You can make a card, scrapbook page, gift, or anything you want.   We can't wait to see what you create.

Here are a few card ideas to help get you started:
