The challenges on Monday at Splitcoast are TLC631 (no line coloring) & CAS422 (winged things).  Hmm….I’m thinking maybe I should have just picked a floral to do the no line coloring. I’ve done it on ornaments & candy canes & it turned out fine, but this little missy was hard to do. Mainly because she’s so little & it’s hard to no line her & keep facial details.

Anyway, I no lined her by using desert sand ink, colored her, then masked her & stamped the butterfly w/ lt blue & colored it. Without having this in my Misti, it would have been impossible. Since the ink is the same color as the Copics I was using, I had to stamp her several times while coloring just to find the edges again. I was so impressed by Nancy Williams card Here & the floor she drew that I added a drawn floor. The curtains were dry embossed, cut out & added on top.

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

A big congrats to DJ Rants, the newest Featured Stamper (FS528) on Splitcoast! We were on the ODBD team together for quite a while & I’ve been an admirer of her fab gallery for a long time. After much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the birthday theme & most of the layout, but I used different images, different paper & left off the top frame.
To make my birthday card, I die cut 3 white panels then sponged each of them from the top left inward, letting it fade to white in the lower right. I stamped & die cut the big Happy on the largest layer so the section wouldn’t be missed when the other layers were added on top. The little birthday was stamped on the lower right of the top panel. I also die cut 2 more big Happy dies out of white to shadow the stamped version. 

Here’s a look at the inside.

Well,  today’s sketch (SC636) had me stumped for a bit. Until I had the idea to use the 4 way Chevron die & cut a piece of white for that diagonal part #3 of the sketch. The row of flowers is my part #4. I did flip the sketch because it fit my images better.

The tired lady (yep, she looks a lot like I feel by the end of most days) was stamped onto an already die cut little rectangle & I used some of the cut out parts of the Chevron die & colored them lime, as border elements. 

Here’s a look at the inside, using more of this cut out pieces, & below it are the Copics I used.
