Between the Fold Challenge #8: Watercoloring!

The Between the Fold Challenge for this week is to use Watercoloring in your project.  Click on the link or on the picture below to come and play with us!

My father-in-law passed away yesterday and as I was reflecting on his life and years of service to our country, I was inspired to make this card.  He served almost 21 years in the US Army and fought in both the Korean and Vietnam wars.  He was 84.

Here is the project I've created for you:

This is a 5x7 card with a Pacifica base, a 4.75x6.75 layer of Slate and then a 4.5x6.5 piece of Watercolor paper.  I used our new watercolors to paint the flag and white embossed the stars and saying onto it.


  1. This card is fabulous! The story behind the card makes this project even more beautiful. Love how you did the stars and the wavy red lines.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I am thinking of you and your family during this difficult time.

  2. What a beautiful tribute with such a beautiful card! Love how vibrant the colors are!

  3. This is beautiful card and I am so sorry for your loss!!
