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!
To make my celestial birthday card, I used water color paper to make a Wrinkle Free Distress background using Distress Oxide inks. When it dried, I used a couple of stencils & lightly sponged just a little pattern here & there. Then  I stamped just the border of the Rainbow Safari image around the edges then used a paintbrush and a little of oxide ink to paint half of the leaves. The Sister Sun image was stamped & colored w/ Copics. I used a circle die & did a little out of the box to keep the sun rays intact. The little greeting strip was added underneath the cut off section on the right.

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

Thanks so much for stopping by!

To make my card, I put the lady image into my Misti, stamped her w/ Memento, colored w/ Copics then overstamped w/ Versafine. I stamped the greeting under her then used a mask large enough to cover the greeting & also placed a mask on the lady. Then I stamped the flourish w/ the greens ink pad & used a ruler to draw the lines around the greeting. After die cutting the panel, I edged it w/ a green marker & used a die that only does 1 stitched line above & below the greeting . A little stickles was added on the flourish.

Here are the Copics I used.

A big congrats to Cheri, the newest Featured Stamper (FS463)! She has such colorful, vibrant gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the snowy winter scene & most of the layout, but I used different images, different colors and used a window instead of the snowflake border. This also uses the Sketch Challenge (SC571).
Red Christmas Truck 08067
I used a large image for my card, but I split it in two & put the top part inside the window & the truck below. Everything was colored with Copics & I had to do a little out of the box to keep from cutting off some of the branches & the front of the truck. The greeting circle was stamped, die cut & added on the upper right.

Here’s the inside & the Copics I used.
