Today’s Color Challenge on Splitcoast (CC673) is a trio of soft colors I rarely use together..wisteria, sky & wasabi. This was the first image I had that came to mind to use w/ these. As you probably can tell from the name of the image, I left off the cheese part of the image so I wouldn’t have to worry about sneaking another color in there.

The image was stamped, masking the left side (w/ the cheese) & colored. I didn’t like the way the border looked so I die cut a double stitched frame & attached it on top. The wisteria layer & narrow frame were leftovers so I used them. I had to rearrange the greeting & leave out the “quick” part in order to fit it in.

Here are the Copics I used.

Does this image make you thirsty, lol? It’s been a 5 O’Clock kind of week around here. And I just love images w/ colorful, tasty beverages in them. After coloring them I die cut them & added some equally colorful layers of papers behind them. I thought the Relax die would fit in perfectly w/ the image.

I added some stickles here & there for a little sparkle. 

I’ve shown this on other posts, but I’m always amazed at how much sharper the image looks after over stamping w/ Versafine. Below.. left is just w/ Memento & Copics..right is after stamping again w/ Versafine (click any picture to enlarge).

Today’s Color Challenge (CC457) on Splitcoast is tailor made for Christmas cards so I actually have 2 cards, both on the humorous side. This first one is Holiday party time themed. The drink line up was colored, die cut and layered onto a die cut green layer. The large white panel was pierced around the edges and the greeting stamped at the bottom right. The two sizes of holly and the Santa face were colored and fussy cut. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.

My second card has a couple of fun little piggies on it. What’s Christmas without a couple of pink pigs on your card?

I really enjoyed sticking the Billboard Leonard Pig in holding the greetings on these pig cards. Since it’s a Christmas card, I added a Santa hat to Leonard. On the scene, I stamped the lamp post, masked the bottom then stamped the Christmas list pig in front. After coloring w/ Copics, I added a red die cut frame and stamped the border around it. I had to cut out the top part of the lamp post  in order to have it on top of the frame. I added a big die cut bow and I instead of coloring in the greeting in all solid letters, I did a candy cane stripe on some. The card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.
