What a fun technique for today’s Technique Challenge (TLC449) on Splitcoast…Faux Whitewash! I followed the instructions except instead of dye ink/waterbrush I used my water based Tombow markers.
After embossing,whitewashing and coloring w/ the markers, I added a die cut sentiment and some whitewashed sunflowers on the large layer. Some white buttons were used to fill in the empty space beside the image.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Thursday! The Ways to Use It Challenge on Splitcoast today (WT446) is to use squares. Now I haven’t measured, but I believe the window openings are squares. So I’m going with it!
The images are from DRS Designs. I started w/ a 5.25 x 4 piece of white card stock. I stamped a black spider web in the upper left and used a Scor-Buddy to add the score lines below the trim which was added just on top. After die cutting the window, I stamped the tree/moon/bats on a small piece and colored w/ Copics, then attached behind the window and onto the card.
The greeting was stamped, die cut then I matched up the spider web and stamped it in gray so it wouldn’t overpower the greeting.The cat/mouse were fussy cut as well as the little spider in the web. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

The sketch today on Splitcoast (SC455) was a bit challenging for me. I just have a hard time tilting things when the rest of the card is level. The tilt of the one thing makes it look crooked to me. Maybe I’ll just make it all tilted next time so it won’t look off.
Anyway, I colored this pretty holly wreath w/ Copics then did an out of the box technique using a square die. I used the next larger square to cut the dk red layer behind it and a large corner die for the titled layer. The large green layer is dp and the narrower green layer is a piece I made while doing the No Gel Plate, No Problem tutorial. I used a scallop border die on the bottom of it and attached a leafy flourish on top. The greeting was stamped directly on the 4.25 x 5.50 card front and these are the Copics I used.
