Such a wonderful photo site for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC751)! I was inspired by THIS picture.

I started by stamping the fairy & masking her. A reverse circle mask was placed around her & I sponged in the colors for the blue planet. Then I placed the circle mask on top of it & used black acrylic paint over the entire area.

After it dried, I added some different blues above a circular line I drew to represent the planet she’s sitting on. White acrylic paint splatters were added for the starry sky. I stamped another fairy, colored & fussy cut her to add on top of the stamped one & I white embossed the greeting on the dark planet.

Here are the Copics I used:

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS678) this week, so a big congrats to JJ Barrett (aka IndigosMom)! JJ has a lovely, colorful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the blue flower & chevron embossing, but used different images & dies, different embossing folder & a different layout.

To me, the blue, white & yellow color combo looks so fresh & crisp. After I colored the flowers, I die cut them, doing a little out of the box cutting to lift a couple of the petals on top of the die cut zigzag frame I attached on top. The script was heat embossed w/ white ink & white powder onto the cobalt blue strip. The white bg was dry embossed & I actually used the back side because I liked it a little better for this. On the Love die cut, I cut it in white & also blue, then spliced them together, using the cut off parts underneath their opposites for a double stack.

Here are the Copics I used. I also used yellow & ultramarine Prismacolor Pencils to add depth to the colors.

For my second week as a Guest Designer on the Color Challenge (CC774), the colors are a lt blue, dk blue & white. Very clean, crisp colors! I don’t have the exact colors so I came as close as I could.

I love this tall coneflower die & I thought it would be great in white, so I die cut a circular window behind it, framed it w/ a stitched circle then created a blue bg to put in the window. Using a lt blue, dk blue & white acrylic paint, I dry brushed them across the card stock, then sprinkled on some glitter before some of it had dried. Acrylic paint dries so fast that it only took in some streaks which I think looks great IRL. The greeting was heat embossed in white on the dk blue strip & I added a few clear sequins.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
