We have a very colorful sock site, called Joy of Socks, for our Inspiration Challenge (IC747). I chose THIS pair of socks for my inspiration. Good thing I kept the pic, because the socks have been removed from the site!

For my get well card, I die cut the various succulents out of teal, lime & scraps of watercolored paper then die cut the white pots. I wanted a large window, so I used my die  resizing technique to make the (original window is only 4 panes) window half again wider & longer. I’m not gonna lie..it was a little tricky but it worked. The valance was cut using a curved border die & fun orangey-red paper. Another, subtle print was added behind the window & I popped the whole thing up just a tad w/ cardboard. I wanted a little pop of color, so I added some little red flowers to a couple of the plants.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Keep safe & be well!

I have a pretty easy Easter card today that fits a couple of Splitcoast Challenges..the Free for All (F4A525) & yesterday’s Ways to Use It (WT783). The F4 challenge is to use a rainbow of colors & the WT challenge is curves. I certainly have a rainbow of colors & bunny got curves, all right!
I’ve had the idea for this card for awhile & I don’t have a paintbrush image (what I really wanted), but I do have this pencil image. So let’s pretend these are watercolor pencils! For my watercolor bands, I started in the middle & wet the area for the yellow w/ plain water, then floated in the yellow. Then I did the blue & purple on either side to give the yellow a little time to dry before I added the pink & green. I didn’t want the areas to run together too much. When it was completely dry, I stamped the yellow peep, masked & stamped the others. The pencils were colored to match, fussy cut & added on top.

Here’s the inside.

I’m so excited to have been asked to be a Guest Designer for the Splitcoast Color Challenge this month! And for the first challenge (CC773) of 2020, we have a blue, yellow & brown color combo, w/ trees as the dessert option. I don’t tend to use a lot of brown so it was a good challenge for me. 

It’s kind of funny, but after I was told the colors, I went to bed that night & kept thinking “what am I going to make?”. When I woke up, I actually had a picture of this card in my head. All I had to do was to try create it. And a tree w/ a deer is actually an excellent way to work that brown in to the mix. For the bg panels,  I used some blue Brushos on watercolor paper & just let the watery mixed blues run & spread down the paper. After it dried, I cut it into 3 panels & attached a little cardboard to the backs then onto a deckle edge espresso brown panel. I added a larger lt blue panel behind it then the die cut espresso tree on the left & a saffron yellow sun behind it. The deer was also attached to a matching cardboard die cut & I used Prismacolor Pencils to add the color.
