For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC854) we’re visiting a Pinterest Board called The Postmans Knock where I found THIS picture.

I wanted a watercolor look to my branches so I put a die cut piece of water color paper into my Misti to allow me to stamp the same branch w/ different shades of inks. On the first impression, I misted the branch w/ a little water. After stamping w/ 2 or 3 colors, I also used some water based makers to add a little more depth to the leaves. The greeting was stamped on a separate piece of w/c paper along w/ the butterfly. I used a water brush to spread the ink colors inside the butterfly then stamped it again using the darkest of the teal inks. I repeated this on a scrap of w/c paper & cut that butterfly out to pop up on top of the base image. The greeting layer was popped up on top to give some dimension.

Stickles was added to the butterfly & gems attached on the branches.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC850), we’re visiting Fine Art America & their Pinterest Boards where I found THIS cute picture.


For my card, I used a piece of watercolor paper I made ages ago. I thought the pastel colors would be perfect for my Easter/Spring card featuring these 2 cute bunnies. The leaf cover plate was die cut a few times & stacked for dimension before adding it on top of the w/c background. The bunnies & flowers were stamped, colored & die cut w/ their matching dies. I also elevated them just a bit. The centermost die of the Outside Scallop set was used for the greeting. Stickles was added to the flower centers for some sparkle.

Here are the Copics I used:

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC841), we’re visiting Virginia Living & their Pinterest Board where I found THIS picture of a pair of lovely earrings for my inspiration.

My mini slimline is really quick & easy. I die cut the white & teal panels w/ 2 sizes of the stitched mini slimline dies then used a triple stitched circle inset die to cut the trio of circles out. I found a scrap of a watercolor bg from some previous project & used the inset to cut three circles, then inset them into the openings. I put the panel into my Misti & stamped the greeting multiple times to get good coverage. I added a few clear dew drops (I added a bit of color on the back sides w/ Copics) for a little something extra. In order for the top of the letters to show a little more, I used a white Prismacolor pencil to add just a hint of outline on the parts that were stamped on the watercolor. The top white panel is popped up a bit.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
