Congrats to Janeen, the newest Featured Stamper (FS647) on Splitcoast! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the birthday/fishing theme but used different images, different dies & different colors.

For my card, I was trying out this new Camo Bg stamp. I will not lie…I had a bit of trouble at first. First couple of times, I used it too much & just made a messy looking bg. The next 5 times, I couldn’t find a color combo I liked. It was going to be like the little fisherman’s vest..but again it looked too messy so I just used a small part of it for the vest. I finally went with sort of a watery color combo then stamped the little fish on top. A little more subtle, but I like it.

The fisherman was colored w/ Copics (except for the paper pieced vest) & I split the greeting above &  below him before adding a dark charcoal layer. The camo bg was actually done on printer paper..it was one of my practice sheets but I liked it so I just glued it to the same charcoal c/s & went w/ it.

Here’s the inside (I replaced the W in Wishes w/ an F from the Pawsitively greeting) & below it are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC708) we have Converse shoes. They actually have a colorful, fun site & I was inspired by THIS pair of shoes. I love the rainbow of colors.

For my card, I first white embossed the mermaid tails & little fish then used Distress reinkers & a waterbrush  to create the rainbow of colors.The paintbrush was used to float in water, a section at a time, then drops of the reinkers were added. I made another little scrap like it to use for the die cut the “Happy”. A little splatter, some sequins, the stamped rest of the greeting & done.

Here’s the inside..I did a little masking to recreate the Fintastic part.

The Color Challenge on Splitcoast (CC745) is red, white & blue w/ a dessert option of Patriotic. Since it’s almost the 4th of July, it sounded perfect. 

My card is pretty simple..I colored & fussy cut the patriotic heart & blue layer behind it. Stamped the greeting on the die cut white front. I also die cut the band of stars down the left & replaced the outline w/ a blue one.

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