I had a little more time today, so I made another for the Color Challenge (CC476) on Splitcoast. The colors seemed perfect for this wisteria image. After stamping and coloring with Copics, I did my out of the box treatment on it. It’s such a large image it was about the only way I could add any more layers and have them show. After die cutting it and the brushed gold layer behind it, I wanted a little more color but all I had was the darker strip on the left, so I added another strip of a lavender heather and embossed it for some texture.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big CONGRATS to Janine (aka nines), the Featured Stamper this week on Splitcoast (FS299)! What a wonderful gallery she has! I spent a long time strolling thru her gallery but kept coming back to her Read All About It card. I really liked the two color combo and text background. I kept the Christmas theme, text bg and two color combo, but I had to change the layout to fit. And I used different images, made my own background and used different colors. I had so much fun with this that I made it in 3 different colors. On two I stamped the backgrounds the same as the image and on the blue version I stamped the background in white on blue.
The main image is an oldie but goodie from Personal Stamp Exchange (PSX). I sure miss them and I adore their images. This one is such a lovely image, I elected to just stamp it in one color and add stickles for the snow instead of coloring it all in. I used a snowflake border (Recollections) and a large Tis the Season sentiment (TPC) to stamp the backgrounds on a diagonal.
Since my image was so large, I had to go horizontal and leave off a couple of the strips Janine had on her card. So mine are a little different but I think they’ll do. And this is 3 more for my Christmas card stash. Yay!
I know which color I prefer…but which color do you favor? If you can guess my fave, let me know by leaving a comment and I’ll pick a name from the correct guessers for a little BLOG CANDY! Can you say COPIC? Can you say DISTRESS INK?? Sounds pretty tasty!!
Congrats again, Janine! Enjoy your week!

Great couple of challenges at SCS. I’m combining yesterday’s Sketch and today’s Ways to Use It (only white c/s allowed).Â Despite how the colors look, all c/s started as white. Everything was stamped w/ either white or seaglass pigment ink and embossed w/ white pearl ep. The white pearl ep gives it a little shimmer, but it also makes the white look a little more like cream than white.
The sentiment (PSX) was cut out w/ a nestie oval using the out of the box technique. (Tutorial HERE)
The rest of the tiles (SP) were stamped and embossed and cut out. Pretty basic. I used the Nestie square on the seaglass embossed panel behind the sentiment and a Nestie scallop square on the embossed white layer behind it.
