Such lovely floral arrangements on today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC593) on Splitcoast! My card was inspired by THIS lovely picture w/ it’s yellows & peachy oranges. I also liked the black bg because it gave me a chance to do the Prismacolor on black c/s again from the TLC632 challenge. Maybe I should call this one “Ducks at Night”. 

I like this technique, but it is challenging because you kind of have to think in reverse when coloring. I used my Misti to stamp the ducks with Brilliance moonlight white ink. Usually you use pigment ink but Brilliance dries so much faster & w/ the Misti, I can stamp it repeatedly to really make it bright. I used Prismas to color it then stamped over it again w/ the white ink.  Added the greeting below & a few stitched flowers around the circle.

Here’s a look at the inside using leftover frames & flowers.

Thanks so much for looking! Have a Happy Easter!

Today’s Free for All Challenge (F4A373) on Splitcoast is to have something w/ wheels. I used a cute little golf cart & made a shaker card with it.

To make my shaker, I die cut the white panel, put into my Misti, stamped the Golf Cart w/ Memento, colored w/ Copics, then over stamped w/ Versafine. I also did an extra of just the area behind the shaker. Then I used a craft knife to cut out that area on the top version. The shaker pouch is just part of a clear envelope..the kind embellishments or stickers come in. I put some sequins in it then closed it up around any open edges. I like using these clear envelopes because they don’t add a lot of bulk & are still mailable. I did add some foam tape around edges of the top panel to give the shaker just a bit of room.

Here’s a little tip for you..see the brown sequins? They were actually gold..I colored them w/ a dk brown Copic (a brown Sharpie also works). Yep. It works! I added a little pennant for the greeting since it wouldn’t fit anywhere else. The green bg was stamped w/ the green ink & the Everything Golf Bg image.

Here are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Today for the Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS424) on Splitcoast,  we’re going on an egg hunt! I was pretty good at hunting Easter eggs when I was a kid. In fact, my dad used to make me put some back for my sister & brother. Waaaaaahhhhhh… not fair! Then there was the prize Falstaff egg. No different than any other..just had the word “Falstaff” on it. And I have no idea why, other than it was a beer my dad sometimes drank. So I’d put some back, but if I had the Falstaff egg, I was keeping that puppy!

My CAS card has a big ol’ bunny face, a big ol’ rainbow egg (not the Falstaff, obviously) & and Easter egg hunt sign, in case you didn’t know the way. Colored & fussy cut the pieces, added some grass & clouds and a-bee-a-bee-a-bee-a that’s all folks!

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