A big Congrats to Pattie, the Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS325)! She has such a lovely gallery and I chose her Hey Chickie to case. I kept the layout and birthday theme, but I made central image an oval instead of a rectangle, offset it a bit and used different images.
The images I used are from DRS Designs. After die cutting a Spellbinders petite oval in the white panel, I used a polka dot bg w/ white pigment ink & white embossing powder to cover it. I also white embossed the image on a piece of vellum & colored the back side w/ Copic markers before attaching the polka dot frame on top. One wing of the butterfly & one leaf were cut around in order to have them on top of the oval frame. The sentiment & turquoise layer were die cut w/ circle dies & I used a Copic marker to change the color on the Candi dot from lt blue to turquoise. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Congrats again, Pattie, and enjoy your week!

For today’s Color Challenge on Splitcoast (CC423), the colors to use are River Rock, Baja Breeze & Not Quite Navy. I had 2 close matches for the river rock & baja breeze, but nothing even remotely close for not quite navy other than the dk blue ink I used for the sentiment.
The images are from DRS Designs. So I stamped the chevron on the RR clone using the khaki ink and on the BB clone using the french blue ink. Then I colored inside one chevron using a white Prismacolor pencil. For the sentiment panel, I used copics to scribble some bg color then stamped the sentiment w/ the nautical blue ink. Added some Candi dots on the side and my 4.25 x 5.50 card was finished.

For today’s Technique Challenge (TLC426), the theme is Scrappy & Loopy…use scraps & show some loops that aren’t bows. So my card is made mostly w/ scraps…the deckled vanilla panel I stamped the image on is a leftover and was barely big enough. The layer behind it is a paint chip which I guess counts as a scrap. The other vanilla layer and the dk red layer were both the size you see so technically, they are not much more than scraps. For the loops, I put a couple of loose loops in this piece of leftover twine. The image was colored w/ Copics. I pierced two of the layers and distressed the edges of the dk red layer. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and the images are all from DRS Designs.
