I used the lovely  Zinnia image for my card today. After stamping & coloring, I fussy cut the 3 flowers & leaves.  The black strip was die cut & the flowers arranged around & over it. I only used part of the original greeting…the You part was just too large to fit in the space. So to make the you die, I used part of the Rejoice die  & trimmed away the rest. 

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

Today’s Technique Challenge (TLC678) & Clean & Simple (CAS469) are both about backgrounds. The TLC wanted us to make a stained glass bg & I totally cheated on this one. I promise, if I have time, I’ll come back & do it right.  😉 

I put the Stained Glass Oval image into my Misti then stamped the image w/ Memento desert sand. I knew I wanted to gold emboss it but since I also wanted to color it w/ Copics &  the two don’t play well together, so it was stamped first w/ an ink color that would allow me to see the lines but also disappear when embossed. 

After coloring it, I over stamped it w/ gold pigment ink then heat embossed it w/ gold powder. I die cut a piece of lilac card stock &  a larger piece of sage green then cut the ovals out of the centers. The Happy Easter Cross was stamped, colored &  I cut around the top to let more of the stained glass show through then attached it behind the oval frames &  then on top of the stained glass background.

Here are the Copics I used.

Today’s challenges on Splitcoast, TLC677 & CAS468 were combined for this card. The Technique was use a paper towel roll as a painting tool & the Clean & Simple was to have a bird.

So for the technique challenge, I took the cardboard center of a paper towel roll & cut a piece off then cut it up the middle & used only about half of it. After rolling this piece much tighter (for a smaller circumference) I taped it the slit the bottom as per the technique. After stamping w/ the different colors of paint, I let it dry. It wasn’t quite as pretty as I hoped it would be, so I just a section of it behind the toucan. The toucan was colored w/ Copics & die cut. 

Here are the Copics I used for the toucan.
