We have a very interesting site for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge..Brown Paper Bag. There are so many wonderful things to see & I chose THIS for my inspiration. 

For my version, I inked some watercolor stamps w/ distress oxide inks, misted, then stamped them onto watercolor paper. In some places, I took a water brush & dragged the color more toward the center. One of the splatter images was inked w/  black DOX & stamped in the upper corner. When dry, I used a set of deckle rectangle dies to cut the 3 panels & edged them w/ a gold leaf pen. I used the blue & black DOX inks to paint the die cut flower branch & added mirror gold centers & wrapped some black & gold thread around a couple of the panels before putting it all together.

Here’s the inside.

It’s my turn & my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge this week! So a big congrats to Catherine, the newest Featured Stamper. She has a lovely, fun gallery & I saw many I wanted to case..but I finally chose THIS. (I actually saw a lot of cards w/ stars!) I love the stars, so I kept those, but used a die instead of a stamp for the stars, used different colors & made mine a graduation card.

My card is pretty CAS, I had a bg…actually a lg white envelope that I kept under my card stock when I was sponging, spraying & what not, & it looked so pretty & glittery, I saved it. I die cut the Stars out of the front & added the bg behind it. I put the white outline back in place & used a silver Wink of Stella on some. It was really surprising to me how much sparkle it added in comparison to the clear I used on the capital letters of the greeting & a couple of the other white star frames. I added some diplomas & mortarboards in the left corner.

Here’s the inside.

There are some really beautiful photos on today’s Inspiration Challenge site! After much consideration, I chose THIS picture for my inspiration. It reminded me of this 2 step watercolor image I had & also because I actually have some photos of that same tree. We visited there a while back & it was a little sad to hear that part of that tree was damaged in a storm recently.

My card is pretty simple..I scribbled some water based Tombow Markers onto the solid ground part of the image, misted & stamped onto a textured watercolor paper. I did the same to the tree & little grasses. I used my Misti to stamp each of these several times so I could get a good variance of color on the images. Then I added a couple of frames w/ ovals die cut out of the center & four die cut photo corners.

Here’s the inside & the markers I used.
