Today’s Technique Challenge (TLC632), black magic tech, & the Clean & Simple (CAS423), April showers, were a great pair to combine. 

After stamping the umbrella onto black (a Misti definitely helps w/ this..had to stamp it a number of times, before & after coloring), I used the Prismas to color it. Then I stamped the raindrops &  part of the greeting. Had to stamp that a bunch of times to get it bright enough. Added the stitched flags & sequins & pretty much done.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Thanks so much for looking.

Supplies:

Stamps: DRS Designs – Umbrella, Under the Weather, Raindrops
Paper: Staples 110# white, black, turquoise, lime, blue
Ink: Brilliance moonlight white (Memento tuxedo black & Kaliedacolor Riviera -inside)
 Accessories: MFT stitched flags, Lil’ Inker stitched rectangles dies, Prismacolor pencils, Misti, sequins

A big congrats to Stephanie, the newest Featured Stamper (FS491)on Splitcoast! What a wonderful gallery! I didn’t have to go far to find THIS set of cards to case. I’m also a fan of Mondrian so this was an easy choice.  Bright Day 09500
I thought Stephanie’s set of cards looked so cool & I just bought this embossing folder that reminded me so much of the graphic design of her cards. The only way I could think of to add the color to it (coloring some of the little squares didn’t work…believe me, I tried), was to emboss little rectangles & circles & add them on top.  I also drew a few black lines w/ a pen & ruler. After I did that, I added a couple of black die cut frames & w/ little strips of color behind the inside one. Then I came across this Hero Arts stamp set I’ve never used & the greeting letters look just like one of the frames. Perfect! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Has it been crazy hot where you are? And humid, too? A walk outside around here is feeling like walking through a steam room. It’s pretty bad when it feels as if you’re wearing the air like a wetsuit. As Dr. Suess might say…I do not like the heat. I do not like it one bit. I do not like it even one little bit. For today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC551), we have a Pinterest Board full of Tim Holtz inspiration. I was inspired by THIS card.

 (I DO like these colors. I do like them a lot.) And cattails & dragonflies are what you’d probably see in a hot, humid area. You can tell it’s hot because of the blazing orange above the dragonflies. I die cut a stitched rectangle out of the white linen c/s then sponged on the oranges from the top down and the green/turq from the bottom up. Then I put it into my Misti, stamped the cattails & dragonflies w/ Memento, added some color w/ Copics, then over stamped w/ Versafine. Just a touch of the splatter bg. was added here & there. The greeting was die cut in a double stitched circle & I sponged the outer circle w/ the same colors.

Funny thing about the bottom…I scored the top fold in the wrong place which made the front shorter & back too long. Instead of rescoring it (which would make it look funny & all), I cut off the excess on the back & added a sponged strip w/ part of the grid border on top. I guess another case of a mistake turning into an opportunity for change.

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