There are some really beautiful photos on today’s Inspiration Challenge site! After much consideration, I chose THIS picture for my inspiration. It reminded me of this 2 step watercolor image I had & also because I actually have some photos of that same tree. We visited there a while back & it was a little sad to hear that part of that tree was damaged in a storm recently.

My card is pretty simple..I scribbled some water based Tombow Markers onto the solid ground part of the image, misted & stamped onto a textured watercolor paper. I did the same to the tree & little grasses. I used my Misti to stamp each of these several times so I could get a good variance of color on the images. Then I added a couple of frames w/ ovals die cut out of the center & four die cut photo corners.

Here’s the inside & the markers I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT735), we are to have grass on our cards..hand drawn, die cut, stamped..doesn’t matter. That’s pretty easy! All my grass was drawn in w/ Copics.

In fact, there’s only 1 image on this CAS card. The gnome w/ the partial tree. I added all the grass, bushes, sky & leaves w/ Copics. This little guy really looks like he’s sorting things out, doesn’t he? My theory is he’s thinking over ways to add a new room onto his tree house. I put together the greeting from 2 different ones, then added the die cut G at the beginning. The edges of the card front were trimmed w/ a corner rounder to match the rounded rectangle die cut of the panel.

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

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC693), we’re off to Pottery Barn. I was inspired by a couple of nautical images, THIS & THIS. And since I used the colors from this week’s Color Challenge (CC730), I’m linking to that, as well. 

My little porthole style window scene is entirely made up of die cuts using some wonderful new dies from Rubbernecker. I die cut all the items then put them together, mixing the colors for the lighthouse & sailboat. You can really get an idea of the dimension in the pic below. I really wish we had more sunny days so I could take more like this.

Here’s a look at the inside.
