Such a cute site for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC642)!After a lot of browsing, I chose THIS for my inspiration. I liked the sweet little duck & all the Easter eggs & I needed an Easter card so it was perfect.

For my Easter card today, the baby ducks were stamped, colored & die cut, and I had to do a little out of the box on the grass along the way. The large green bg started out white but I sponged Distress & Distress oxide inks onto it, splattered it & also stamped the Splatter Bg on it in blues, greens & finally white. The white splatter was heat embossed w/ white powder & I left an area at the bottom w/o too much on it so I could add the greeting. I was going for that speckled egg look on the bg. 

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

Just a quick card for the Color Challenge (CC679) on Splitcoast today. The little flower image was colored w/ Copics then die cut into a square along w/ the yellow square behind it. The large yellow bg was heat embossed w/ white powder using a bigger daisy image.
 
For the blue layer, I die cut it into a square then used a postage stamp die to emboss it. A little yellow flower border was die cut & added down the side w/ some white brad centers.

Here are the Copics I used.

The Technique Challenge (TLC680) on Splitcoast is a dark to light gradient background. Well..I have a dark to light to dark bg. 

The checkerboard bg was stamped w/ white & clear embossed then I sponged the Distress inks from corner to corner. It was die cut & a very narrow black layer inserted between the 2 cut layers before putting them back together.

I split the greeting up to add the die cut Shine in the center. This die cut word was heat embossed w/ red glitter powder to make it sparkle & shine. I popped up the greeting panel to give it some dimension. Here’s the inside.

Stamps: DRS Designs –Sun Shine On You, Checkerboard Bg  (inside:  Sunny Day Birthday Greeting)
Paper: Staples 110# white, black
Ink:  Memento tuxedo black, Colorbox frost white pigment, Distress inks worn lipstick, squeezed lemonade, fired brick, twisted citron, cracked pistachio, peacock feathers, salty ocean

This next card is for the Color Challenge (CC677) is peach, coral & a lt. emerald. 


I came as close as I could to these colors (on the screen, that peach color looks really golden-yellow to me). 

The flowers were stamped a bunch of times, colored & fussy cut. I like the look of these long ovals so after stamping the greeting & die cutting them, I arranged all the flowers to the side.

Here’s the inside & the Copic colors I used.
