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!

It’s my pleasure to host this week’s Featured Stamper Challenge (FS758) & a big congrats to Linda! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the layout & butterflies but used different images, dies & slightly different colors.


For my CAS card, I first die cut the white panel then masked off the largest area on the right & sponged some colors on the left. I placed it into my Misti & stamped the 2 part flower/stems images on top. The butterflies were stamped & colored on a separate piece & die cut. The strips were stacked & added as a divider like Linda did. Just a little stickles was used on parts of the butterfly wings & flower centers.

Here are the Copics I used on the butterflies:

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC766), we are headed to Allen Designs Studio & after much browsing, I chose THIS for my inspiration.

 

My card features these cute little bees & sunflowers on a Slimline card. I’m really loving these new dies! After I die cut the white front & all the flowers & bees, I put them together. For the background, I found a leftover piece of mixed media I made, who knows how long ago, using metallic acrylic paints. I liked the colors so I die cut circles bigger than the openings (to show thru the little dots surrounding the circles), then cut them again w/ smaller circles. I used a honeycomb die on the smaller circles, then put them back inside, leaving out a few of the hexagons. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
