Such a super site for the Inspiration Challenge (IC684)! After much browsing, I chose THIS. It reminded me of a lovely stamp I have but have not used.

I used my Misti to stamp the image onto watercolor paper & stamped it once w/ lt green ink on the leaves & again w/ pink ink on the flowers. After watercoloring it, I decided the image outlines didn’t show up enough, so I stamped over it w/ gold ink & heat embossed w/ gold powder. I used an angled border die to cut the bottom & insert a piece of flower print paper, before putting them back together. The gold stripe edges are washi tape.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats to Mary, the newest Featured Stamper (FS596) on Splitcoast! She has lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the Friend & flower theme & layout, but I used different colors, die cuts instead of stamps & a circle opening instead of an oval.

The colors on my flowers came about when I was refilling some Copics the other day. I noticed the inside of some of the caps were a total mess so I poured a little 91% isopropyl alcohol into them & thought it was a shame to waste all that color. So I poured it out onto a white piece of card stock. I liked the way it looked so I used it for the flowers & greeting. The lg circle burst was die cut into the white & a turquoise layer put behind. Then all I had to do was arrange the flowers, add a few sequins & some Copic tinted crystals. I will mention in case any of you have trouble (like I do) getting the letters straight…I left the letters in the die, added tiny dots of glue to the backsides, then turned the die over onto the c/s & pressed thru the die holes to release. Worked like a charm!

Here’s a look at the inside. I used the negative of one of the flowers as a stencil.

Such a fabulous site Brenda chose for the Inspiration Challenge! I loved THIS w/ the sweet little birdhouse so it was my inspiration. 
For my card, I used the new Bird Feeder image (I love the little nuthatch!) &  wonderful greeting. Since it mentions stormy weather, I wanted the background to reflect that so after stamping & coloring the bird feeder, I masked it then sponged in the bg. I stamped the greeting then added a few raindrops I drew & cut out. I used a birds on a wire punch across a piece of black c/s then added strips of gray & red for contrast to the black layer. A little red bird was added just because…
Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
