It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC739) this week!  We have a really fun site for all you color lovers..CRAYOLA! And since it’s Feb 1, time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club February Christmas Challenge. ! We have a brand new year of Christmas Challenges!  You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. Bet you’re wondering what the challenge theme is..I’d love to tell you but you’ll have to go see for yourself. 

From the Crayola Pinterest Board, I saw THIS picture & thought the floral would be perfect for my combo IC & Christmas card. After coloring this new floral bouquet image in shades of pinks & greens,  I die cut it using my out of the box technique to keep from cutting off the leaves. I liked it arranged in the corner & it also gave me room for the greeting. The center panel is up on fun foam & I added a  narrow die cut frame behind it on the large pink layer.

Here are the Copics I used & I also used a few Prismacolor Pencils to deepen the shadows:

This is for the Splitcoast Color Challenge (CC776) & my last week as a Guest Designer for the challenge. This week, we have a lovely blue/green, flamingo pink & poppy red color combo. 

I colored this lovely new flower image using the colors then die cut it. The script was stamped down the left side using the oxide ink & the greeting in the lower right. I used a marker to add highlights to one side of the big Live word.

Pretty clean & simple! Here are the Copics I used. I also did a Prismacolor overlay on the flower using similar colors to the Copics.

A big congrats to Angie, the newest Featured Stamper (FS677) on Splitcoast! So many lovely cards to view & after much browsing, I chose THIS card to case. I kept the layout, lady & flower, but used different images & dies, different colors & moved the greeting.

After coloring the lovely Jacqueline image & the flowers, I fussy cut the flowers & used a craft knife to cut along the back of Jacqueline to insert the edge of the flowers under her. (If you cut right on the black line, it’s virtually invisible.)  I resized my top panel to narrow it & used markers to color in the hexagon strip I added on the left.

Here are the Copics I used for Jacqueline & I also used a Prismacolor overlay:

And these are the Copics I used on the flowers:
