Julie Warner –
I started this yesterday for the MIX Challenge (MIX59), but didn’t finish. So when I saw THIS picture on the Inspiration Challenge (IC432), I colored this fabulous orange blossom image, added some of the same shabby white embossing powder to it and added it to my mono print background. Since I did the tutorial for the mono print, I thought it might be nice to make an appearance for the challenge. Here is the tutorial I did way back in 2009 when I was on the Splitcoast Dirty Dozen! Mono Print Tutorial. I also did and updated version for ODBD last year when the Gelli Plate craze hit. No Gel Plate, No Problem. The background for this card is very similar to the ones I did for this tutorial. I just really like these colors together. After I made my mono print background using pigment inks, stencils & stamps, I added some of the shabby white embossing powder used the Perfect Paper Crafting mini rulers to make the 1/16 inch teal mat. I added the orange blossom image, also w/ a teal mat and the little criss crossed strips are just pieces that were trimmed off.  Julie Warner – The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.

For my first card, I used this sweet Happy Spring set. Aren’t these little ducklings adorable? You can almost feel how soft and fuzzy they are! After stamping & coloring, I used my out of the box technique and die cut with a square. I left the die in place and sponged a little yellow ink inside the corners. The leaf sprigs were die cut using an ODBD Fancy Foliage die and I used the tag die from the ODBD Recipe & tag dies for the greeting. The background was stamped with just the orange & yellow colors of a rainbow pad using the ODBD Vintage Mini 1 image and a left over corner of the ODBD Daisy Chain die was added on the right. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used. Julie Warner -

On my second card, I used the wonderful Easter Basket set. Isn’t it pretty? After coloring, I die cut a rectangle frame out of white textured card stock and added the greeting on the frame. I didn’t have any paper to go with it, so I made a background using a spritzer & several Easter colors of Copic markers. After spritzing, I used a small paintbrush dipped in Copic blender solution to splatter it creating the Easter egg colored background you see here.
