Innertube Chicken cu 09450i
This is for several Splitcoast Challenges…Sketch (SC597), Color (CC587), Technique (TLC590), & Clean & Simple (CAS381). And it’s also for my dad, who has a super sense of humor. Since he lives in Texas where they’ve had about a ton of rain, this is how imagine he’d be kickin’ back, ridin’ it out, if he didn’t already live on the high side of the street, lol.

I printed out this cute image onto Hammermill digital card stock. I haven’t worked a lot w/ digis so it was a bit of trial & error until I got the size about right. Then it was die cut & I left the die in place when I colored it w/ Copics & sponged in my cloudy sky. The little seagulls were stamped & a life saver added in the corner. The rest of the card is per the sketch & the top white section was also sponged w/ a little cloud stencil I made w/ scallop scissors.

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

My first card features the super cute little Heart Bouquet. I found a small piece of water color background in my stash & the colors seemed perfect for it. I stamped it w/ Versafine off to the side & used a white gel pen in just a few small areas. A die cut white linen frame was attached on top of it w/ the Love You stamped at the bottom & one small, fussy cut heart at the top. For the larger linen layer, I stamped the Sun Garden image across the bottom & left it uncolored. I drew the very narrow frame around it w/ a ruler & black Micron pen. A couple of narrow black layers were attached under the 2 white linen layers.

Silver Hearts cu IMG0338
As I started my second card, I realized I did not have any wedding or anniversary images or greetings 😯  So I used mostly die cuts out of silver mirror board to go w/ the silver & kraft colored paper I had.  The Special Day greeting was silver heat embossed on a piece of plain craft & inserted under the large Congratulations die cut.

Silver Hearts 09427
The two little hearts beneath the greeting were from the Love die,  which I ended up not using here. I love the look of the mirror board die cuts, but it is so hard to photograph!
