This is for several challenges on Splitcoast. First the Inspiration Challenge (IC377), and I was inspired by this Fish Pin. For the Mixability Challenge (MIX4), we are to use water based mediums and I used water based reinkers and shaving cream on top of water to create my background. And last but not least, the LOVEFEST2013H challenge by Unity, colors and a picture. I used the colors as my starting point.
For my card, I used a shaving cream background, stamped the image on top. This technique has been around a while and here’s a link if you’d like the directions: Shaving Cream Technique. To make sure the image was dark enough, I also used black embossing powder and heat embossed it.
I left a narrow border around the image when I trimmed it and then attached it to dk green layer w/ a punched side and then a gold textured layer. A little sponging was added to the gold layer, the large lt green textured layer and also the 5.5 x 4.25 ivory card. The sentiment was stamped in two directions on the lt green layer and I sponged over the top of some added embossing on the left side.

Today we are to use blues & browns for the Free For All Challenge(F4A155) on Splitcoast! This is one of those cards I had sitting on my desktop and didn’t upload to SCS for some unknown reason. Since the colors fit, I figured better late than never!
For my Autumn Lake View card, I started by stamping the image onto watercolor paper. I used a combination of markers and reinkers to color it. With a paintbrush, I filled in a lake area and some ground around the tree. I stamped a few grassy elements along the ground and used the Micron pen to sketch out the ground, water edge and hill areas. Markers were used to add some fall foliage on the far side of the lake and little blue was added to the sky. I used a lg square Spellbinders die and resized it to cut out the white frame. A very thin black mat was added behind the frame before attaching to my scene. Finished card measures 5.5 x 4.25.

Congrats to Michelle, today’s Featured Stamper (FS247) at Splitcoast! Wonderful gallery! I chose her Very Vintage to case. I kept the same vintage look and general layout, but turned it, used different image and dp and used a punch for the sentiment instead of the border punch.
All images are Innovative Stamp Creations . The ornament was stamped onto vanilla c/s using the bordeaux ink and again onto dp using black ink then the ribbon part was paper pieced onto the vanilla image. I cut a reverse mask of the ornament and stamped the stars and snowflakes inside using the merlot pigment ink then heat embossed using a red/gold glitter powder. The holly leaves were colored w/ a marker then the oval was cut using a Spellbinder’s die. I cut a larger oval and a narrow rectangle out of the same dp. A vanilla rectangle layer was also cut using a die.
The sentiment was stamped and a tag punch used to cut it out. A narrow layer of the dp was added and then it was attached to the image panels. A larger panel of the tree dp was added. The trees were a little too far apart for my layout, so I cut out a couple of the burgundy trees and moved them closer together.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
