This is for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC667) & Stacy chose a lovely Etsy shop. For my card, I was inspired by THIS picture. I love the dark bg w/ the pop of bright blue.

To make my card, I put the rather large Winking Birds image into my Misti, then used a really small ink pad to ink just the branch I wanted & stamped it onto black c/s.  I happen to still have a bunch of Tsukineko’s dauber duo ink sticks so that’s what I used. You could do the same w/ any small cube pigment pad or marker. Since it’s in the Misti, it can be stamped repeatedly to get it good & wet. After I stamped it, I used an embossing powder that I mixed to get the color I wanted. It’s a half & half of a blue pastel & a candy green. It turned out just the aqua color I was looking for.  The background aqua piece  was first die cut w/ a stitched rectangle then I used a narrow inset die on it. I had to cut it 3 times to span the width of the bg. First I cut both ends, then was happy to discover if I lined up a portion on the already cut area, it would cut the remaining center almost perfectly. It’s similar to my resizing tutorial,you just have to be a little more careful when lining up the die. I die cut some little birds out of the same aqua color & added them to the branches & on the greeting circle.

Here’s a look at the inside. I stamped the entire bg image on it w/ a lt teal shadow ink. Adds a little something but it’s still light enough to write on.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I finally finished a background I could live with for Lydia’s DTGD challenge. There are still several fails hanging around. And since the Free for All Challenge on Friday was birds, I colored this digi image & added it along w/ a greeting stamped on a chat bubble die cut.

This was for another DTGD Challenge, the Color Challenge & also the Fan Club Christmas Challenge.

I used Copic markers & a gold Krylon on glossy paper to make my bg layer & the poinsettia petals. The greeting was stamped onto the brushed gold w/ the warm violet ink & heat embossed w/ a transparent sparkly powder. Then all I did was put it all together.

Today is Day 1 of Splitcoaststampers Dare to Get Dirty Challenges! And I made this for my challenge & for all the details of the challenge, go HERE…but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member. That’s easy! 

For my card, I put the cute birds into my Misti, stamped & colored them, then over stamped them to sharpen the lines. The little birds were die cut w/ the matching die & the large bird was fussy cut (rumor has it there’s a die to come!). The background is a hodgepodge of sponging, spraying & watercolor. I die cut the white layer, stamped the greeting, then added the birds. 

Here are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you’ll drop in & join us for Dare to Get Dirty week!
