Posts Tagged ‘Prismacolor Pencils’



For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC647), we have Replacements, LTD. as our site. It’s a beautiful site & I have used their wonderful replacement service in the past to fill in missing or broken pieces of china. They also helped me identify some crystal that belonged to my great grandmother. While I was browsing the casual china, I happened on THIS picture (also below). It looked like a Cinco de Mayo fiesta to me so I went w/ a southwest theme.


To make the serape on the side, I used two plaid images, which until you stamp them across each other, are just stripes. I inked the stripes using Tombow markers in red, yellow & green then colored a wide strip & used fringe scissors on it to make the lower border. The image was stamped, colored & die cut w/ a little out of the box to keep the boot tip & rope from being cut off. I used Prismacolor pencils to add the sunset colors behind the image. For the greeting, I stamped it once in the Morocco ink, moved it a tad & stamped it again in brown ink to get the slight shadow.

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

Happy Easter! And a big congrats to Jayne, the newest Featured Stamper (FS582) on Splitcoast! She has a lovely little gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the bright reddish/orange bg w/ large central image, but I used different images, different die cuts & made mine an Easter card.

For my Easter card, I made a background using distress oxide & regular distress inks by brayering the inks onto white.  On top of this, I also stamped the Brick Wall  w/ water. It’s not real noticeable, but it does add a nice textural look, especially on the darker part at the bottom. Then the Pussywillow image was stamped w/ gray ink & I added a little white Prismacolor pencil to the buds. 

Here’s a look at the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a Happy Easter & a great weekend!

This is also for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC641). I was inspired by THIS butterfly.

For my Lilac Note, I put the lovely image in my Misti, stamped & colored w/ Copics. I used Prismacolor pencils to do a light overlay in areas then over stamped it to bring back the details. It was die cut & I had to do a little out of the box on the leaves on the left. I had a couple of left over rectangles in 2 shades of purple & I thought they looked nice behind the upper left & helped balance out the composition. I had to finagle the greeting a bit to work around the image & I added a little white gel pen around a loop of the J to help it stand out. A little wink of Stella was added…hard to see here, but shimmery in real life!

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