For today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC603), I chose This scrapbook page. I don’t really do scapbooking so mine is a card¬† ūüėÄ but I liked the silhouette images against the sky.¬†
For the background, I used the Wrinkle Free Distress technique by smooshing the brown Distress inks onto my craft sheet, misting pretty heavily, then pressing mostly the bottom half of my water color paper on top. (Repeat this until you get the coverage you want.) After wiping the sheet off, I repeated this for the top half of my paper using the blue inks. Since watching paper dry is not one of my strong suits, I dried it w/ my heat gun then put  into my Misti and stamped the hiker &  trees w/ the sepia Versfine. I had to stamp them each about 2 or 3 times to get a good impression on this watercolor paper. I used a white marker to edge the panel & the white Prismacolor pencil to highlights to some of the rocks. I had a large brown paint chip & I liked the names of the colors so I let them show at the bottom. The greeting was added on a circle & backed w/ a larger circle from the paint chip.

Here’s a look at the inside.

For my water color cards today, I came across some Brusho backgrounds I made who knows how long ago. ¬†I couldn’t decide if I liked the turquoise/blue bg or the rainbow bg more…so I used both! ¬†On this ¬†turq/blue one, I put the Mill¬†image into my Misti and stamped it 2 or 3 times w/ Versafne (to get good coverage). I added just a few highlights here & there w/ a white gel pen then added the greeting below it. It’s edged w/ a black marker, then attached to a turq layer & a very narrow black layer. ¬†

Here’s the inside. The greeting was shadow stamped w/ the blue ink slightly offset from the black.


On the rainbow version, I went thru the same repetitive stamping as the first one but ended up heat embossing it w/ black powder anyway. This unknown water color paper is soooo textured it made stamping a line image a little more difficult.

I die cut a narrow black square frame for it & stamped the greeting on a leftover piece of the background. A dot border was embossed on the frame between the image & the greeting.

Here’s the inside.

Please be sure to comment on all the DT Blogs..it will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!

A¬†big congrats to Donna, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS536)! After much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I admit my case doesn’t look a lot (really anything) like her card, lol. I literally focused (tongue in cheek) on the camera & my card just kind of grew from there. After I had the camera die cut, I thought it went really well w/ the greeting, then I needed something to have a picture of…and that’s how it went.

So after I stamped & colored the flamingo scene, I added the die cut frames, the camera & split the greeting w/ the first part on the little flag & the rest on the lower frame.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.


Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful Mother’s Day!
