Flourish Wishes cu 08088
Today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC532) is a page of 100 color combinations. Since they’re all together on the page, it’s impossible to link to just one but here’s a picture of it. I chose #85 Classic Metallics.

Flourish Wishes 08089
Usually, I go with the bright, vibrant colors, but occasionally I like to work with neutral tones…sort of a palette cleanse thing. To make my card, I used part of an Ornate Corner Tile to make my central design. I put it in my Misti & stamped it 4 times on the corners w/ Memento. After coloring w/ Copics I over stamped it w/ Versafine. If you look at the picture below, you’ll see why. The bottom two have been over stamped..the top two have not. Big difference!

I did a little out of the box to remove some of the white background & added a black square layer. The design was stamped & colored again 4 times & I fussy cut those out to add under the squares. A greeting was added below on separate layers & I added a black/metallic gold Candi button in the center of my design.

These are the Copics I used.

Well, it turns out my first post today was for a CAS Challenge last week, lol. I got lost in the Challenge list and picked the wrong one. This is for the challenge that’s actually today…(CAS244) Tearing or Distressing. While it may not look totally clean & simple, it actually is CAS. For my pink/green bg, I quickly (very quickly) pounced/sponged 4 colors of ink then stamped the image w/ Versafine on top. It’s die cut w/ a long rectangle and I added a bit of a white marker and stickles to the snowy parts of the pinecones. The black grid looking bg is a long ago leftover from a TLC challenge (TLC235) painted grid. This is also for one of the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges…HYCCT1326, Mixed Media.

I tore the side of the long strip using a tearing ruler (makes it so easy). I attached it to a left over strip then attached the narrow little strip I tore off. I added the greeting on the card front and a few sequins cause you can never have too much bling! The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by! You still have a few days to enter the DRS Thursday Challenge. This week it’s Pumpkins, so all you need is a pumpkin on your creation & DRS images are not required, so head on over!

For my card, I used this beautiful Zinnia image, stamped it on white, then did an out of the box Nestie technique and colored it with Copics. An extra butterfly and large zinnia were also colored and fussy cut. Now I’m fairly sure my “butterfly” could be a moth in disguise, but I’m going with it. The greeting was stamped on the gold card stock and I added a gold shadow w/ a Copic marker on one side and used a white gel pen highlight on the other side of the letters before die cutting it.
Before I attached the extra Zinnia on top of the base image, I cut and lifted a few of the petals. The finished card is A2 (4.25 x 5.50), and these are the Copics I used to color everything.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
