Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT475) is all about Ovals. Since ovals are one of my favorite shapes to use, this is my kind of challenge!
This card is actually not hard at all…I started by running a glue stick all over a piece of plain card stock then smoothing a piece of heavy duty aluminum foil down (I used the duller side up) on top of it. I cut one piece slightly smaller than my 4.25 x 5.50 card front, put it inside the fleur de lis embossing folder, then I put the lg oval frame of the Diffuser set on top and embossed. This left the oval center unembossed. I just happened to have a narrow black die cut oval frame that fit so I attached it around the oval. The 3 crosses were die cut out of trimmed off foil covered card stock I had left. I also embossed only the same crosses on black card stock, fussy cut them & attached under the silver versions.
On the embossed background, I used a black Copic marker to add the antiquing along the inside edges of each diamond shape & wiped it a bit w/ a paper towel as I went.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

For today’s Technique Challenge on Splitcoast (TLC428), it’s Happy Birthday, Joan! We are to CASE a card of Joan’s and/or use one of the Techniques she hosted. I chose both…first I cased Joan’s The Sea card AND I used one of her challenges (TLC418) Gotta Love Circles! I used a similar ship on the sea image and the blue/white/yellow color combo and used 3 circle shapes on my card.
The images are from Our Daily Bread designs. I inked up the image w/ Ranger denim ink, then wiped off most of it on the right side, leaving just a hint of blue. The sentiment was stamped on the right, on top of the palest ink, then the image was die cut and edged w/ a yellow Permapaque marker. The 2 compass roses were stamped, colored w/ a yellow Copic and cut out, along w/ the anchor. The navy background was embossed and the image and cut out element added on top along w/ a ship’s wheel embellishment. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.
A big Happy Birthday to Joan and thanks for all the fun challenges! Thanks so much for stopping by!

For today’s Color Challenge on Splitcoast (CC420), we are to use red, saffron and pool party. Except for the red, I don’t have the exact colors so I used Distress Inks to try and come close. I mashed the inks on an acrylic square, misted then placed it on a piece of white card stock. It didn’t look quite dark or vibrant enough, so I sponged on a little extra color using the same inks then stamped the Stained Glass collage image on top using the Versafine. I picked out a few areas of the image and highlighted them w/ white gel pen then attached it to a larger yellow/gold layer. I die cut a Quatrefoil Pattern then snipped out a couple of sections and glued them on top. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.
