This is a CAS (clean & simple) card for the Color Challenge (CC493) today on Splitcoast. I don’t have the exact colors, but I came pretty close using Distress inks. I masked the edges of a white panel and sponged on the inks. Then I used a stencil, sponged thru it to add a bit more interest. The image & greeting were stamped on top along with some dots across the bottom using an ink spot image.I added a few highlights on the colored part of the image w/ a white gel pen and white Prismacolor pencil. It was die cut w/ matting die and the leftover piece was sponged and added back around the main panel.
I even went for the dessert option of the challenge…recycle something My little leaf was stamped w/ Stazon onto a piece of plastic packaging and colored on the back side w/ Copics, cut out then heated a little in order to curl it a bit.

Today’s Technique Challenge on Splitcoast (TLC495) sounded really interesting…use a stencil and stamp thru it. Well…hmmm…I tried a bunch of my stencils, plastic & brass, but nothing really looked right or recognizable. And I was getting pretty frustrated. Yes, I know I have a low tolerance for irritation. Hubby’s response to my frequent “this is driving me crazy” is “Short Trip.” So I’m pretty sure my finished card wasn’t done exactly like directed, but I like it anyway. And it looks much better than my other attempts. So it is what it is.
As my last resort, I die cut a big circle and used it as a stencil (or mask, if you will) and stamped a couple of silhouette leaf images using the desert heat rainbow pad inside the circle. The die cut clock was added on top. I removed a few of the center parts of the clock because I liked it better w/o them. The little matching section on the left, was a leftover part when I die cut the circle behind the clock and I stamped the leaves again to match then attached it to a black rectangle. I also added another matching strip under the lower edge of the card front. A fishtail flag die was used on the greeting and a couple of Candi dots added in the upper right corner to balance things out.

What a super color combo today on the Color Challenge (CC447) on Splitcoast! My card doesn’t really have a pool key, but one of the colors is Pool Party and there are some keys on it, so….
After stamping the frame and greeting, I added just a hint of color to simulate the Pool Party color then die cut. It’s attached to 2 more die cut layers. The black flourishy elements on top and bottom are leftovers from an Adorning Square die. The die cut keys (from the Angel Wing die set) were added on top of a leftover background I made a while back that had the stenciling (for the dessert option) and the right colors. The tutorial I did for this background HERE.

What a super color combo for today’s Color Challenge (CC475) on Splitcoast! Love these bright, high contrast colors! The red & orange remind me of poppies, so that’s the direction I went. I spent most of my time fiddling with background…the rest was quick & easy.
On the background, I started by using a large water color brush and a couple of red & orange reinkers. I also splattered a bit using the brush. Then I took a couple of stencils and sponged on some real red thru the stencils. I die cut the poppies & the little squares out of this. The greeting was stamped in a combo of the two blue inks. I don’t have any little enamel dots, but I did find these sort of metallic ones. They weren’t quite blue enough, so I added a little more blue w/ a Copic marker.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Wonderful challenge for the Ways to Use It on Splitcoast (WT465)! The challenge is to Color Something. It just so happens I LOVE to color! So I colored these cute little kids and I also sponged, masked, stenciled, stamped and colored the background and added color to the greeting strip.
For the background, I started with white card stock and sponged on some light purple and light blue inks. I used a sequin waste strip as a stencil and sponged on some darker blue & purple inks in areas. Then I stamped a splatter image here and there with dk blue & also white pigment ink. I did the same with a polka dot image. After stamping the greeting on a trimmed off piece of white, I sponged on some of the same inks diagonally. I turned down one corner of the image, added a button and called my 4.25 x 5.50 card finished. These are the Copics I used for the image.
