Such lovely floral arrangements on today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC593) on Splitcoast! My card was inspired by THIS lovely picture w/ it’s yellows & peachy oranges. I also liked the black bg because it gave me a chance to do the Prismacolor on black c/s again from the TLC632 challenge. Maybe I should call this one “Ducks at Night”. 

I like this technique, but it is challenging because you kind of have to think in reverse when coloring. I used my Misti to stamp the ducks with Brilliance moonlight white ink. Usually you use pigment ink but Brilliance dries so much faster & w/ the Misti, I can stamp it repeatedly to really make it bright. I used Prismas to color it then stamped over it again w/ the white ink.  Added the greeting below & a few stitched flowers around the circle.

Here’s a look at the inside using leftover frames & flowers.

Thanks so much for looking! Have a Happy Easter!

Today’s Technique Challenge (TLC632), black magic tech, & the Clean & Simple (CAS423), April showers, were a great pair to combine. 

After stamping the umbrella onto black (a Misti definitely helps w/ this..had to stamp it a number of times, before & after coloring), I used the Prismas to color it. Then I stamped the raindrops &  part of the greeting. Had to stamp that a bunch of times to get it bright enough. Added the stitched flags & sequins & pretty much done.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Thanks so much for looking.

Are y’all having a great spring week? Except for a couple of nasty thunderstorms, the weather here has been terrific! Mostly sunny, a little windy, temps in the 60’s. Just about perfect! With everything in full spring bloom, I thought this dotty daisy looked a little like some of my pink azaleas.

This is actually a fairly simple card. No fancy tools or punches or even any coloring. Don’t you just love this new Dot Background stamp? It really dresses up plain pink card stock. I also used for the new daisy image. It’s layered on top of a plain huge bloom and a button ribbon slide is on top w/ a narrow ribbon tied through it. I stamped a couple extra of these and split them in half down the right side.

The new Thinking of You was perfect for this layout and anytime you need a sentiment to go vertical. The finished card measures 5.5 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
