Today's special guest star, Rubeena Ianigro, is no stranger to Winnie & Walter as she was our April 2016 Leading Lady and her work is always a treat!  Rubeena is also an incredibly generous, welcoming and giving person with a huge amount of talent and skill. Please give her a warm w&w welcome!

Hello, friends! I am happy to be joining the winnie & walter 4th Birthday Bash this month as a Special Guest Star. Shay is one of the sweetest, most generous people in the craft industry and I had the honor of meeting her at Creativation last month! I have two projects to share with you today that represent my style the best.

 Loose watercoloring is very relaxing. I have so much fun working with greenery so I decided to play with In Bloom: Renee's Leaves for my first card. I stamped an assortment of the stamps on watercolor paper using a waterproof black ink pad. Then, I used my Mijello Mission Gold watercolors to color. I added black splatters and fussy cut the images. For the card base, I stamped one of the line borders from Scenery: Stripes 2 on the far left edge and then added black splatters to the base. I arranged all the leaves first using glue dots. I finished the card off by adding the die-cut sentiment (which was cut in gold glitter, black, and white cardstock layers) from In a Word: Thanks Cutaway. This card shows all the things I love when it comes to creating: layers, black and white stripes, splatters, bold colors, die-cut words, and gold glitter! For this card, I incorporated the Die Challenge with Lydia.

For my next card, I continued watercoloring but focused on using Party On with Evelin T Designs. I also enjoy one-layer cards. I stamped the four critters on watercolor paper using the same waterproof black ink pad and masked off each one before stamping the next. Then I colored loosely with my watercolor palette. Once everything dried, I stamped the beautiful sentiment from the same set and then taped the finished piece to my white cardbase. So fun and simple! For this card, I incorporated the Four Challenge with Shay since I used all four critters.
