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.

Merry Christmas Eve! For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC838), we’re visiting BlueBellGray & their Pinterest Board where I found THIS lovely pillow. I liked the watercolor look of it on the ends w/ the flowers toward the center. Mine turned out a little more purple than magenta, but I like it.

For my slimline card, I used Brushos but mixed the powder in a palette w/ water then floated in the purple/violets & pinkish reds in from each end of the 140# w/c paper. While it was drying, I stamped the flower on another piece of w/c paper  w/ fade out ink. I haven’t used it much & in my opinion, it really didn’t fade out in this just looks gray to me. I used the same color of mixed Brushos to paint the flowers, then die cut them & fussy cut the leaves. Some of the flowers were popped up & I used the Misti to split the stamped part of the greeting a bit in order to add the Wishes die cut below. A few gems finished it.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
