A big congrats to Denise, the newest Featured Stamper (FS579) on Splitcoast! She has a lovely little gallery & I chose THIS to case. I love the vibrant blue so I kept I kept that & most of the layout. I used different images, turned it horizontal & moved the greeting,
This is also for the Ways to Use It Challenge (WT678), to use bleach. I actually love using bleach on card stock…w/ all the different brands & colors, you never know exactly what you’ll get. For this, I stamped this southwest pot image w/ bleach onto the cobalt blue c/s. I was pleasantly surprised to see it turned a lovely turquoise color when bleached. The strip on the side was simply sprayed w/ bleach. After fussy cutting the pot, I used a lg bg die to emboss the turquoise panels then added a double stitched circle frame & some sequins & strips of paper for grasses. 

Here’s a look at the inside.

Just for grins, I sprayed a bunch of different colors of c/s  to see what bleach would do. Here are my results. (Click any pic to enlarge. If there’s a solid piece next to it, that was the original color.)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Pam, the newest Featured Stamper (FS518) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the flower theme & general layout, but I used different images, different colors & left off the twine.
I just received these fun new Fancy Flowers kit from MFT & couldn’t wait to give it a test drive. The flowers were colored & die cut w/ the matching dies. I already had the white stitched arch so I die cut a couple of black ones to fill in & added the negative die cut of the greeting & a few crystals.

Here are the Copics I used.

Ink:  Memento tuxedo black
Accessories:  MFT stitched arch, Smile, Fancy Flowers, Blueprint 21 dies, Spellbinders A2 matting basics A, Copic markers, Misti, rhinestones

This was made for 3 Splitcoaststampers Challenges…today’s Sketch (SC613), yesterday’s Color (CC603) & Monday’s Technique (TLC606). I used all of the colors for my Thanksgiving card & did a little bandana tech on the olive green strips. For the sketch, I let the legs of the scarecrow serve as the 2nd horizontal band of the sketch, but all other elements are there.
The scarecrow was colored w/ Copics, fussy cut & added to a stitched oval that I stamped the arced greeting across the top. The scroll image was stamped on the die cut olive strips & I used the white gel pen for the bandana tech. The ombre yellow strip started out a honey color & I sponged the Distress inks on it going to red at the bottom. The sponged & fussy cut leaves & punched branches were added around the oval.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
