For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC806), we’re headed to a watercolor Pinterest Board where I found THIS lovely portrait. I don’t have a child’s face image so I used Jacqueline, instead.

I put a piece of watercolor paper into my Misti & stamped her w/ Morning Mist versaclair ink..it’s a dk grey so it’s not as high contrast as black. I used some soft teal & soft peach watercolors & a lot of water to paint the panel. I didn’t even mix the color..it was some that was left over in my palette & I liked the colors. When it dried, I stamped the greeting across the left bottom corner & used a pen to add the XOXO. In my head, I saw it as a stylized glamor portrait that the sender would autograph. 


Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS741) this week! So a big congrats to Heather, the newest FS. She has a beautiful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the layout & green (because I LOVE greens), but used different images & dies & made my card a floral instead of a St. Patrick’s Day card.

For my card, after stamping, coloring & die cutting the poppies, I did the stems & leaves & fussy cut them to add them to my white circle. The smaller bg was sponged w/ the lime greens & a little teal on the ends. The larger bg is one I made a while back w/ a die cut & some Brushos, but I wasn’t crazy how it looked alone. But it worked great behind my sponged layer.
Here’s how it looked by itself. See? Nothing to write home about. I took some die cut leaves to use as a mask, then sprinkled the Brushos & spritzed w/ water.

I put the sponged panel into my Misti & stamped w/ the Versaclair then put all my layers together & added a few gems.

Here are the Copics I used for the poppies:

For the Inspiration Challenge (IC802), we’re headed to a Paper Mache Pinterest Board, where I saw a fox sculpture but for the life of me, I can’t find it now. So I’ll use THIS for my inspiration.

For my cute pair of foxes, I stamped them & the tiny mouse onto watercolor paper, stamped w/ the Versaclair then used watercolors to color them in & die cut w/ their matching dies. The ground was sponged w/ a couple of the green Color Fuse inks then the stems & flowers stamps on top. The half tree & tiny spring leaves were die cut & added along w/ the greeting.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
