A big congrats to Kathy, the newest Featured Stamper (FS852). She has a big , beautiful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I liked the split panel circle in variegated shades & the butterfly w/ the die cut outline leaves, so I kept those. But I used different images, dies & colors & instead of gold I used holographic silver.

After I die cut the circle out of white, I laid strips of turquoise, teal & blue onto a piece of some Glad stick & seal wrap then die cut the same circle out of it. After peeling off the wrap, I cut the strips narrower to allow some white from the base circle to show through. The butterfly was colored w/ 3 Copics (BG07, BG10 & Bg23) & die cut. The leaves & flowers were die cut out of a silver holographic card stock & arranged under & on top of the circle.

I left most of the “insert” pieces inside the leaves just because. The circle was popped up w/ foam.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Kay, the newest Featured Stamper (FS850)! She has a beautiful gallery w/ a lot of gorgeous creations. After much browsing, I chose THIS card to case. I liked the flowers down one side & the lovely colors, so I kept those. But I used different images, dies & paper. 

For my floral card, I colored & die cut the floral corner image & butterfly. The greeting was stamped on a butter yellow paper & for the white background, it was embossed w/ veined leaf stencil. (You can see the instructions for that HERE.)

And here are the Copics I used:

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.
