A big congrats to Sylvia, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case.I kept the cute dinosaur theme but changed almost everything else..different images, different colors & different layout.

After stamping, coloring the cute little dinosaur, I made a little forest scene on the white panel by stamping the 2 trees & masking as I went. The front most tree was stamped separately & fussy cut. I drew a box around the trees & colored in the sky & added some punched clouds. 

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

It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS589) on Splitcoast. So a big congrats to Wanda, the newest Featured Stamper! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the wheelbarrow full of flowers & most of the layout, but I used different images, different colors & added some little birds on a branch.

For my wheelbarrow, I wanted a softer look, so I stamped it in gray. It made it very close to a “no line” coloring & because the flowers are small, made it a little harder to color. I did the same to the little birds on the branch & fussy cut both. After I had the front linen panel layered to a soft lavender one, I lined up where I wanted the wheelbarrow & stamped just the little swirls in gray on the bg. 

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

This is also for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC648) & THIS was my inspiration.

To make my card, I used a background I made quite a while ago. It’s a technique I learned around 1999 (yikes!). Easy & fun to do. All you need is white glossy or semi-glossy card stock (it needs to have a coated surface) & art tissue that bleeds when wet. Not all tissue paper will do this, so check what you have first. I have some Spectra Art tissue & I know it bleeds so that’s what I used. Pick some colors you like but be aware that contrasting colors (like red & green) will make brown. Tear some pieces & place them on your card stock then mist it w/ water. Wait a minute or two then remove the tissue & let it dry. You want to leave the tissue on long enough to bleed the color onto the c/s but not long enough to dry there, or it will stick. 

After it dried, I placed it into my Misti & stamped the mailbox image on top. I wanted it a bit darker so I coated it w/ black embossing powder & heated. I used a white Posca paint pen to add the white dots to the flowers & border around it.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Please be sure to comment on all the blogs..it is much appreciated & also increases your chances of winning!
