A big congrats to Michele, the newest Featured Stamper (FS471) on Splitcoast! She has a lovely gallery & it didn’t take me long to pick THIS one to case. I kept the floral theme & used the same corner die, but I used different images, different colors & turned mine horizontal. 

For my card, I started with a bright yellow/orange water color background I made a while back. I die cut it then a white layer for the top. After die cutting the corner, I stamped the large Flourished Easter greeting on it. The lilies were stamped on a piece of Hammermill white, colored w/ Copics, over stamped w/ Versafine then die cut w/ the new matching die.

I added some gems on the background & a little stickles on the flowers. Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used for the flowers.

Today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC532) is a page of 100 color combinations. Since they’re all together on the page, it’s impossible to link to just one but here’s a picture of it. I chose #85 Classic Metallics.

Usually, I go with the bright, vibrant colors, but occasionally I like to work with neutral tones…sort of a palette cleanse thing. To make my card, I used part of an Ornate Corner Tile to make my central design. I put it in my Misti & stamped it 4 times on the corners w/ Memento. After coloring w/ Copics I over stamped it w/ Versafine. If you look at the picture below, you’ll see why. The bottom two have been over stamped..the top two have not. Big difference!

I did a little out of the box to remove some of the white background & added a black square layer. The design was stamped & colored again 4 times & I fussy cut those out to add under the squares. A greeting was added below on separate layers & I added a black/metallic gold Candi button in the center of my design.

These are the Copics I used.
