For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC775), we’re headed to the Eyelet Outlet. They have a lot of fun stuff & I chose THIS for my inspiration. Love all the coffee go cups!

I adore these new coffee cats from Rubbernecker. There’s also a matching die, but I didn’t use it for this. So cute! And the new background images are right up my alley because I love making my own backgrounds. For this card, I used the yellow, orange & cinnamon Color Fuse inks to sponge the gradient color down a white panel. Since it had so much ink on it, I used a heat gun to help dry it before putting it in my Misti & stamping the bg w/ the acorn Versaclair. The cute little coffee cat was also stamped w/ the acorn ink & I water colored it & added a ground line so it wouldn’t look like he was floating.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to guest host the Watercolor Wednesday Challenge (WCW018) on Splitcoast. The technique I chose is Watercolor on embossed paper. I thought it looked interesting but easy enough for everyone.

Since I wanted to make a Halloween card, I chose a couple of Halloween themed embossing folders to go w/ my cute little die cut owl. I embossed the large bg w/ the wordy folder then followed the instructions on the video using bright, Halloween colors of my Peerless watercolors. After it dried, I thought the words didn’t really pack the punch I wanted so I inked the inside of the folder w/ black soot Distress oxide ink & embossed the watercolored bg again. Much better! Now the words really show up.

I did the same for the little orange Wicked strip & perched my owl on it.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to MaryJo, the newest Featured Stamper (FS710)! She has a wonderful gallery & always leaves the sweetest comments. I chose THIS card to case. I kept the watercoloring & floral centerpiece but I used a two part watercolor rose, heat embossed the bg & partially watercolored it.

On my card, I inked the solid part of the stamp w/ reds, yellows & greens, misted it then stamped it. After it dried, I stamped the outline part w/ black & die cut it & attached it to fun foam. The background was white embossed onto the backside of watercolor paper (it’s a little smoother). I started watercoloring it in the roses, got to a little past half way down, & decided I liked the rest of it unpainted. I used a white frame & a piece of vintage white vellum behind the rose to give it a little separation from the bg.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
