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.

My card was pretty quick. I have a substantial stack of backgrounds made over the last few years & sometimes I go thru them when I’m making a card. The times when I would get stuck for an idea, I would just make backgrounds & file them away. Or when I’m trying out a technique, especially if it’s messy, I’ll make a bunch in different colors or designs. So this is one of those bgs. It’s on glossy paper & it uses alcohol inks. I like the flowing colors & thought it looked good behind this wonderful barn scene.
After I positioned the image in my Misti, I stamped it (minus the windmill) onto the bg. First time, it didn’t work because I used Memento ink. That ink wiped right off of the glossy bg. So I did it again using Ancient Page. That’s my go to ink for glossy surfaces when I don’t really want to use Stazon. I stamped just the windmill on the right of the white frame & did a little into the window on the left of the windmill & die cut the oval center. Added the greeting & a black layer & done!

Here’s the inside. I left it blank except for the barn image which is light enough to stamp or write over. I’ll probably send this to my hubby’s brother who is in the middle of building a barn. 

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

This is a fairly quick card for today’s Free for All Challenge (F4A426) & yesterday’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT684) on Splitcoast. The first challenge has us fussy cutting & the second has us including bugs.

To make my card, I stamped the brick wall w/ gray ink then colored it w/ gray Copics.  The sky was sponged w/ a self made cloud stencil. I decided it was easier to just stamp Mr. Frog on a separate piece, color him & fussy cut him than try to mask out the wall & the original log the frog sits on.  I made a slit along the top of the wall to insert him & make it look like he was leaning on it. The little grass sprigs & ladybug were also fussy cut & added. The greeting was added on a thought/speech bubble along w/ some dragonflies

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