For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC703), we heading over to Ballard Designs & I was inspired by THIS picture. I like the blue & white floral on the oval back chair.

My sympathy card is pretty simple…I die cut the long stem flower out of white & blue then placed the white outline on top of the blue version. The bottom section is an inked embossing folder border I thought mimicked the flower. I had to do a little out of the box on the greeting using a partial die cut shape. Some liquid pearls dots were added here & there after I added the blue, white & marbled blue layers.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

The theme for the Free For All Challenge (F4A483) on Splitcoaststampers is Stormy Weather. Looks like my little Miss Frog is caught in a doozy of one. Her mind must be elsewhere because it appears she’s about to struck by lightning!

My card is pretty simple. I stamped the lightning bolt then used a clear glaze pen to fill it in. I figured out quite a while ago that it will resist sponging w/ Distress inks. So after I sponged on the stormy sky colors, they wiped right off my lightning bolt. I masked the ground & sponged it then added some raindrops. I also flicked some water on the bg & blotted it w/ a paper towel to add to the rain look. Miss Froggie was colored w/ Copics & fussy cut. Here’s the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
