Such lovely floral arrangements on today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC593) on Splitcoast! My card was inspired by THIS lovely picture w/ it’s yellows & peachy oranges. I also liked the black bg because it gave me a chance to do the Prismacolor on black c/s again from the TLC632 challenge. Maybe I should call this one “Ducks at Night”. 

I like this technique, but it is challenging because you kind of have to think in reverse when coloring. I used my Misti to stamp the ducks with Brilliance moonlight white ink. Usually you use pigment ink but Brilliance dries so much faster & w/ the Misti, I can stamp it repeatedly to really make it bright. I used Prismas to color it then stamped over it again w/ the white ink.  Added the greeting below & a few stitched flowers around the circle.

Here’s a look at the inside using leftover frames & flowers.

Thanks so much for looking! Have a Happy Easter!

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.

Had fun with the Technique Lover’s Challenge (TLC389) on Splitcoast. Wow! I didn’t realize we had so many bg tech in the resource section that I haven’t tried! So I did a new one (for me) on two of the bookmarks: pastels on black. Since my images are smaller, I did just a bit inside the stamped white lines.

The images are all from Our Daily Bread designs. On the largest bookmark, since it’s entirely a silhouette, I did it a little differently:Brilliance moonlight white under black ink and no pastel pencils.  I first die cut the bookmark and leaving the die in place, I sponged the Brillance ink all over the inside. I place a little reverse circle mask and sponged more white ink for the moon.  Then the silhouette bookmark image was stamped in the black ink on top. A few highlights were added w/ a white gel pen.

I used a fourth bookmark to make my pocket on the card front to hold the other bookmarks and attached the sides w/ some mini brads to the embossed background. The card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
