NCC Tweet cu 09136
I made this for the Sketch Challenge (SC591) on Splitcoast today. Honestly, this is the sketch..but a few things went a little sideways  🙄 
NCC Tweet 09135
The birdies & branches were stamped, colored w/ Copics, over stamped w/ Versafine & die cut. The watercolor panel was one I made a while back & decided to use. Then in order to see a bit of it, I die cut the top white linen panel w/ a curved die & separated it..so I’m using this & the big branch as my horizontal element. I added the second birdie because..well..that’s a lot of empty white space & it still makes me a bit nervous. I had them all finished, anyway.

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

Birthday Medaillion cu 09113

Today’s Color Challenge (CC581) on Splitcoast was a little challenging to me..I like the sky blue & green..even the wisteria..but that blackberry color is one I’m not that crazy about. And it’s hard to match. I did the best I could using Distress inks & just hoped for the best.

I sponged the Distress inks across a large white panel. Then I put the Medallion Bg into my Misti & applied the Memento inks to it and stamped on top of the sponged bg. In the sky blue & wisteria areas I applied ink again & restamped. After die cutting this panel w/ 2 sizes of Pierced Rectangles, I inserted a fancy white layer in between then attached them to my card. The greeting centerpiece was die cut w/ a Pierced Circle, layered onto a larger sponged blackberry layer & attached to a die cut piece of vellum. I used the same die to cut the white topper, but also used the inside die to cut out the middle & make a frame of it. I trimmed a couple of little corners from a Majestic Medallion die cut & added them below the greeting. 

Here’s a look at the inside, using some left over strips & a butterfly.

Best Red Wishes cu 08884

The theme for the Clean & Simple (CAS375) Challenge on Splitcoast is Wedding/Anniversary. I had some rich red strips left over from something & a white die flower panel so I put the two together. I die cut them using some stitched rectangles & stitched circles.
Best Red Wishes 08883
I had to do 1 side at a time & move the stitched rectangle die in to get the narrow white strip. The largest red panel already had a circle cut out of it & I just made it a little bigger using the stitched circle die. The leftover little half circle is from the strip on the inside. The white flower panel was attached on top & under the red panel & I used some foam tape strips to add some dimension behind it.

Here’s a look at the inside.
