For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC808) we’re headed to a Picture Frame place where I found THIS picture. I loved the eagle & thought it would be a great patriotic card.

For my card, I stamped the screaming eagle. This is a 2 part stamp set & the second part is a watercolor type bg that adds color in places to the eagle. Before I stamped the 2nd part, I used some Copics to color in the eagle then used some yellow, red & blue inks on the watercolor part of the stamp & stamped over it. The eagle was loosely fussy cut then I used a watercolor splatter image to add more of the same colors to a white bg. The eagle was popped up on top of the then I added a white deckle frame w/ the USA stamped in red. The stars were all leftovers & I attached them on top of the left side of the frame.

Here are the Copics I used:

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC761) & as a special treat, the IC Team & the FS Team are putting on a “crossover event” & we’ll be joining forces for both challenges this weekend! For the IC Challenge, we’re headed to Color Shot &/or the Color Shot Pinterest Boards. Since it’s the 4th of July weekend, I picked THIS for my inspiration. 

To make my card, I used some Brushos & painted from both ends, letting it run & flow. I added a few splatters then die cut using a new slimline die. The fireworks dies were arranged at the top, cut & I added glitter paper behind them. All of the fireworks were die cut out of 3 colors of glitter paper, put together & added on top. I found a greeting that seemed to fit the theme & the space in the center of the fireworks & added it. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Color Challenge on Splitcoast (CC793) today, we have 2 blues & a red. Perfect colors for a Patriotic card! 

I’m using a new soldiers silhouette image. I know these will look great as a dark silhouette, but I wanted to see how they’d look if I used another (inked) image to ink them. It’s an old technique called “stamp kissing“. I used the stars & stripes border to ink the silhouettes (I put them in my Misti so I could do it more than once). I like how they turned if they’re draped in the stars & stripes. I separated the greeting, above & below, & used the same inks to stamp them. The piece down the side is a piece of sticky back paper w/ red, white & blue narrow strips stuck to it. The lower section has stars stamped w/ white. Just to add a little something extra, I also punched some stars & added them to the soldiers & also a couple on the bg.


On the inside I stamped the stars & stripe border onto a sort of triangular piece & added it down the left side.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
