Today’s Color Challenge (CC621) is black, white & red all over..w/ the dessert option of making a Valentine or Anniversary card. These are probably my favorite colors for a Valentine and I thought they would be perfect for this idea I had of having a city silhouette inside a large heart opening.
I kind of surprised myself..no stamping & no coloring! Just a whole bunch of die cuts. The city scene was cut out of black & die cut the silhouette behind it once out of white & then again out of the red. The red version was offset to add a little space between it & the bg paper. A white glitter moon was added along w/ a little heart on a stem as sort of a balloon floating out of one of the windows. 
The squiggly line was die cut to act as the “heartbeat” w/ a double stacked Love & another little heart. 

Here’s a look at the inside. Except for the 2 little heart flowers, it was computer printed. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Cowboy on Red cu 09301
best-of-2016-scs-smaller
Today’s Technique Challenge (TLC587) on Splitcoast is a Collar Fold. I admit, I’ve seen a few of these & really liked the look, so this is my attempt.
Cowboy on Red 09300
I had an idea to use the fold w/ this wonderful cowboy image & have the collar fold peel back to reveal a little more of the scene. The paper I used is double sided, a bright red distressed on one side, a paler peach on the other. The image was stamped (a couple of times, using the Misti) w/ Versafine then die cut. I did the collar fold on the left & peeled the edges back & added brads. I stamped part of the silhouette scene again on the larger red layer & attached the top layer on top along w/ a very narrow black frame. The moon/eagle image was stamped on white, fussy cut & added along w/ the greeting.

Here’s a look at the inside.

To start my first card, I knew I wanted a brightly sponged background, so I dug out a few Kaleidacolor ink pads. They have the most vibrant colors and that’s what I wanted.

Howdy Cowboy 09164
 I used a a torn mask for the ground & sponged on the greens, reversed the mask & sponged on some yellow for the sky. Then I added a big circle mask & sponged on more yellow, some orange & a little red. I used the edge of the sponge to add the streaks coming from the sun, then highlighted them a bit w/ a white Prismacolor pencil. I put the bg into my Misti then stamped the silhouette cowboy, lg cactus & the eagle from the Bookmark Trees set. The small cactus & little cloud are punches. I die cut the scene w/ a Double Stitched Rectangle, doing a little out of the box for the eagle. The black background was done w/ a small border punch. I made a corner template out of copy paper & used it to help punch all around the edges and have it be as symmetrical as possible.

Here’s a look at the inside.

My second cowboy card started w/ pieces of a leftover watercolor bg. I liked the bright sunset colors w/ flecks of metallic gold & thought it might be fun to use them in a split background configuration.

Weekly-Favorite   Color-Challenge-Favorite
Having them separated like this was very challenging to say the least. I placed them on top of the die cut turquoise bg w/ temporary adhesive & stamped the silhouette on top. Leaving the turquoise mat in place, I removed the orange w/c layer & stamped the silhouette again.
Cowboy Bday 09197
I liked the look the textured turq c/s gave to the ground area, but not so much on the cowboy. So I stamped him again on a separate piece & fussy cut him. Yikes! That was some fancy cutting, let me tell you! Then I had to go over all the cut edges w/ a black marker to keep them from showing. I added the greeting & big star frame to finish. 

Here’s a look at the inside.
