What an interesting site for today’s Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast (IC375)! After much browsing, I picked this colorful Ottoman. I was inspired by the mix of colors and tried to use some of them in my card.

The images are from Our Daily Bread designs. I inked up the chalkboard image using the Memento inks and stamped it on a large, lt blue index card. I used a spiral punch down the side then attached it to a couple of layers before the dotted designer paper. The tag was stamped with one of the Thank You Sentiments and punched with a word window punch. I added a bow and attached my tag to finish my card.

Today we are to use blues & browns for the Free For All Challenge(F4A155) on Splitcoast! This is one of those cards I had sitting on my desktop and didn’t upload to SCS for some unknown reason. Since the colors fit, I figured better late than never!

For my Autumn Lake View card,  I started by stamping the image onto watercolor paper. I used a combination of markers and reinkers to color it. With a paintbrush, I filled in a lake area and some ground around the tree. I stamped a few grassy elements along the ground and used the Micron pen to sketch out the ground, water edge and hill areas. Markers were used to add some fall foliage on the far side of the lake and little blue was added to the sky. I used a lg square Spellbinders die and resized it to cut out the white frame.  A very thin black mat was added behind the frame before attaching to my scene. Finished card measures 5.5 x 4.25.

 Thanks so much for stopping by!

BEST OF 2013 – CAS

A wonderful color combo today on the Color Challenge on Splitcoast (CC412). I need to use more often! And a sad farewell to Julia as a CC hostess 🙁 I tried to do a Clean & Classy card ala Julia, but not sure if I succeeded or not. I also used a sketch from a good while back that I hadn’t tried (SC336).

The images are from DRS Designs. I stamped the long berry branch and used a long rectangle die to cut it in sections so I could stamp the sentiment in between. It looked a bit plain so I used an embossing border down the other side. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by!


Supplies:
