For the Inspiration Challenge (IC651) on Splitcoast, Brenda chose a lovely site & I chose THIS for my inspiration. 
I started by die cutting the circle out then making a watercolor bg on it & splattering it w/ white paint. I put it back together & put the whole front panel into my Misti & I had to stamp the silhouette trees several times to get them dark enough. Part of a greeting was added & a die cut Wish. I used a white marker to fill in the moon & add the sparkling lines to the “stars”. A little Wink of Stella was added to the moon & stars, as well.

Here’s a look at the inside. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC650), Stacy chose a site of an English tissue paper collage artist, Victoria Bellas Carter. I had fun strolling thru her amazing gallery & chose THIS as my inspiration. 

To make my card, I made a watercolor bg w/ yellows & a little orange. After it dried, I placed it in my Misti & stamped the vases several times to get good coverage on the w/c paper. I used a paintbrush & clear water to remove most of the yellow from the lg flower on the vase then added the pinky red color. I used paint that had dried in my palette & I guess it had some iridescent w/c medium in it because the flowers have some sparkle now. The other little flowers were done the same way on a leftover piece of the bg & I fussy cut them.

Here’s a look at the inside. I haven’t decided who it’s going to so I didn’t add a greeting yet.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

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!
