Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT649) on Splitcoast is Domestic Inspiration…be inspired by something in your home. Whaaaaaaaat? I’m in the process of moving. What isn’t already boxed is waiting to be boxed. My home resembles nothing so much as a fire sale. But I still have some pictures so I was inspired by this (you can see the picture in the lower right in front of the card below). 

In fact, we were the “parents” of Odie (the bird) for almost 27 years until his passing a few years ago. DRS Designs named the parrot image Odie Pretty Bird after him. Pretty Bird was his favorite thing to say..especially if he was misbehaving. And he would from time to time, look you in the eye & lie to you, lol. “Odie, did you do this?” He’d shake his head & repeat “no, no, no”. We called it his SOB defense, as in Some Other Bird did it. I miss that little character every day!

Anyway, after stamping &  coloring Pretty Bird Odie  &  the Palm Tree &  flowers, I fussy cut them all.  On the square inside the popped up frame, I stamped a portion of the Flamingo scene &  colored it. Then everything was arranged on top w/ just enough room for the greeting. 

Here’s the inside & the Copic I used.

A big congrats to Sharon, the newest Featured Stamper (FS549) on Splitcoast! She has such a big beautiful gallery, it was hard to chose just one. After much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the beach/seashell theme & most of the layout, but I used different images, different colors & moved the shells from the center to around the center.
After stamping & coloring the flamingo scene, I die cut the white frame, added the greeting & some curvy pierced lines on the lower left. The shells were all fussy cut & added around the circle opening.

These are the Copic I used to color everything.

Thanks  so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Joanne, the newest Featured Stamper (FS547) on Splitcoast! She has such a wonderful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the tropical sunset theme but used different images, added more colors & left off the flowers/framing.

This scene reminds me somewhat of sitting at Barbers Point in Hawaii. Except that the further row of palm trees obscures the runway to the airport, lol. It’s a little weird to be sitting there gazing at the boats on the water, then a plane rolls by on the line where the palm trees are…almost like it’s just another sailboat.  I have a picture of that exact thing…somewhere.

 
I started by masking off a circle for the sun & a straight mask for the horizon & sponged on the water. Then I reversed the the horizon mask & sponged the sky & sun rays. After removing these masks, I sponged on the yellows for the sun. Then the fun began! I put the sponged panel into my Misti & stamped the palm trees & greeting. The seagulls were added & I used a white gel pen on them & here & there on the water.

Here’s a look at the inside.
