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.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Robin, the newest Featured Stamper (FS488) on Splitcoast! After much browsing, I picked THIS card to case. I kept the basic layout but used different images, different colors & made a water color bg instead of using designer paper. I’m also combining this with the Inspiration Challenge (IC549) & THIS was my abstract inspiration.

To make my background, I sprayed parts of the w/c paper w/ water then sprinkled on the Brushos crystals & spritzed w/ water again. Most of the time, I used a heat gun to dry it in between colors so they wouldn’t make mud. When completely dry, I stamped the butterfly corner w/ Versamark & clear embossed. Then I used a very wet paintbrush to wet the areas inside the embossed flowers & a paper towel to lift some of the color. Awesome Butterfly 09418
The butterfly on top was heat embossed w/ white ink & white powder on a separate piece of painted bg & die cut w/ the matching die. The You was also die cut out of the same bg.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I’ve been combining die cut words w/ greetings for a while & these 2 sets make it so easy. On my first card, I used the You Bless Me So duo set. Don’t you love that smiley face? I thought it would be perfect as the center of a happy little flower. I die cut the white Lavish Layer & used a Pierced Circle to cut out the center. I used the same die on the patterned paper underneath, just for that something extra. After die cutting I large & 2 med Posies, I took the med white one & cut apart the petals to move them out just a tad from behind the polka dot layer.

I added the die cut You & greeting below along w/ a Bitty Butterfly & a couple more flowers in the corner. The You was stacked on top of a thick white layer to give it a little dimension.

Here’s a look at the inside.

My second card features the Sending My Love duo set. Did I mention the greetings are clear sets? Makes it sooooo easy to see where to stamp it. I wanted a fun, festive card and these dies are PERFECT. I made the center white panel to resemble a wrapped package, using the the Bitty Borders as added trim & the Mini Bow to top it off. I also added a small balloon (from the Happy Birthday dies) to go along w/ the larger Balloons & Streamers I used.

I added part of the banner across the upper left corner then added the stamped greeting w/ the Sending die cut above it. Did you also notice these fun, bright papers? These are so festive!
