It’s my pleasure & my turn to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC713)! And we’re headed off to Wool & Honey..mainly a yarn site but they also have some really cute gifts. I love to knit so this place really spoke to me. For my card, I was inspired by THIS magazine. I really love the white plants on the watercolor bg. 

Originally, I was going to mask the shape of the die cut, then watercolor the bg. But it just didn’t work out like I wanted so I went to Plan B where I watercolored the bg then added the die cuts on top. I misted the w/c paper lightly, sprinkled on 4 green & blue colors of Brushos crystals, then misted heavily. After I dried it, I stacked a white die cut slightly offset onto a matching black version to give it a little depth. The greeting was white embossed onto the black strip.

Congrats to Jeanne, the newest Featured Stamper (FS651) on Splitcoast! Jeanne does a lot of watercolor, so I dug thru my watercolor backgrounds for my card. I was inspired by THIS card because I like the hot air balloon theme. So I kept that but I used different images, different colors & made mine a birthday card.

I had just enough of a left over watercolor bg in the pinks/purples to stamp & fussy cut my hot air balloons. I added just a little white pencil on the zigzag lines. The green/yellow bg was one of those that didn’t really work when I made it. So I tried a technique (from one of Lydia’s Challenge last year) where you take a fine line pen & outline all of the watercolor sections. She called it Topographic Watercolor. I was surprised how much it improved the look of it & how I liked it behind the balloons. You just never know when a “fail” will work out in the future. 

Here’s the inside.
