For my sympathy card, I die cut the 2 turquoise panels, put the larger one into my Misti & stamped the Flower Corner & Leaf. Just a little white pencil was added in areas then I lined up the smaller turquoise panel & stamped the bottom part only of the same Flower Corner & also the Tiny Flower .  I added a narrow black mat under the horizontal panel & a portion of the Daisy Border die. A small black bow & a few rhinestones finished it. 

Here’s a look at the inside.

For my typewriter card, I knew I wanted to watercolor this wonderful, vintage image, so I put it into my Misti & stamped it w/ Versafine onto watercolor paper. I added a water glaze on the areas I wanted to color then dropped in the different colors one at a time. The colors are a little different, but I like the way they blend into each other. When it dried, I went back & added more color in areas & added shadows. Then I over stamped it to sharpen up the details. I added a white linen frame & only used part of the greeting. 

Here’s the inside.

Welcome to the Mar #1 Blog Hop for Serendipity Stamps!

This is also for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC641). I was inspired by THIS butterfly.

For my Lilac Note, I put the lovely image in my Misti, stamped & colored w/ Copics. I used Prismacolor pencils to do a light overlay in areas then over stamped it to bring back the details. It was die cut & I had to do a little out of the box on the leaves on the left. I had a couple of left over rectangles in 2 shades of purple & I thought they looked nice behind the upper left & helped balance out the composition. I had to finagle the greeting a bit to work around the image & I added a little white gel pen around a loop of the J to help it stand out. A little wink of Stella was added…hard to see here, but shimmery in real life!

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