To make my summer lighthouse card, I used a small piece of a Brushos watercolor background I had in my stash. After die cutting the white rectangle, I also die cut a large oval & placed the watercolor bg behind it. The Lighthouse was die cut once out of white & once out of royal blue & pieced together. The little windows were colored w/ a couple of yellow Copics. The Summer & lower part of the hello tag were also die cut twice each & stacked. I used the clouds from the Hot Air Balloon Reverse die & also a larger cloud on top of the Hello. I had the die cut frame leftover from something else, so I sponged on similar colors & added it behind the white layer.

Here’s a look at the inside. I left it blank for now, until I decide who it’s going to.

Next stop is Vickie‘s Blog!  Please be sure to comment on all the DT Blogs..it will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!

A big congrats to Joanne, the newest Featured Stamper (FS547) on Splitcoast! She has such a wonderful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the tropical sunset theme but used different images, added more colors & left off the flowers/framing.

This scene reminds me somewhat of sitting at Barbers Point in Hawaii. Except that the further row of palm trees obscures the runway to the airport, lol. It’s a little weird to be sitting there gazing at the boats on the water, then a plane rolls by on the line where the palm trees are…almost like it’s just another sailboat.  I have a picture of that exact thing…somewhere.

 
I started by masking off a circle for the sun & a straight mask for the horizon & sponged on the water. Then I reversed the the horizon mask & sponged the sky & sun rays. After removing these masks, I sponged on the yellows for the sun. Then the fun began! I put the sponged panel into my Misti & stamped the palm trees & greeting. The seagulls were added & I used a white gel pen on them & here & there on the water.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Today is Day 1 of Splitcoaststampers Dare to Get Dirty Challenges! And I made this for my challenge & for all the details of the challenge, go HERE…but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member. That’s easy!
To make my celestial birthday card, I used water color paper to make a Wrinkle Free Distress background using Distress Oxide inks. When it dried, I used a couple of stencils & lightly sponged just a little pattern here & there. Then  I stamped just the border of the Rainbow Safari image around the edges then used a paintbrush and a little of oxide ink to paint half of the leaves. The Sister Sun image was stamped & colored w/ Copics. I used a circle die & did a little out of the box to keep the sun rays intact. The little greeting strip was added underneath the cut off section on the right.

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