The Sketch Challenge (SC697), is so clean & simple..basically just a slash coming in from the lower side. So for that slash, I have a partial pencil. I did flip the sketch & lay it horizontally & somehow the downward slash became an upward one. Oh well. 

This is definitely one of, if not THE simplist cards I’ve ever made. A lot of open white space tends to make me nervous.  This Pencil image is technically, supposed to go on the back of the card, but I couldn’t get this idea out of my head to put it on the front. To me, it looks made to go w/ the Dropping a Line, greeting. 

To make it, I die cut the white panel, then stamped the greeting & part of the pencil then colored them. I added some coloring under the greeting to make it slightly dimensional looking. Then I embossed the left side w/ part of an embossing folder. Lucky for me I had the pencil border folder & even luckier, I could find it! After embossing, I lightly rubbed a turquoise Prismacolor pencil over the raised lines.

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

A big congrats to Jennifer, the newest Featured Stamper (FS588) on Splitcoast! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the layout & big doily image, but I used different colors, different greeting & different embossing folder.
For my card, I stamped the big doily w/ denim ink onto khaki colored card stock then die cut it. I did the same for the border strip & used a wide piece of grosgrain ribbon behind it. Just the center part of the doily was stamped again, die cut w/ a circle die & layered w/ a larger khaki circle. The navy bg was embossed & I used a word window punch for the greeting.

Here’s a look at the inside.

For the Inspiration Challenge (IC649), Angie chose Vineyard Marketplace & I chose THIS for my inspiration. I like the bright colors & floral theme.

This bg was made a while ago, using swirls made with plain old glue then using watercolors on top of it. I just really like the bright, happy colors & thought they’d go well behind these whimsical leaves. The leaves were put into my Misti, stamped, colored w/ Copics & a Prismacolor pencil overlay, then stamped again. I added the greeting & did my out of the box technique to die cut it. By the way, I first did that tutorial way back in Feb 2009 using another IO image set! It’s probably my most used technique. After matting, I used stickles in some areas, added a few sequins & some white dots for contrast. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
