For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC738), we have a lovely place called Ferris Wheels & Carousels. I was inspired by THIS picture.

After I colored 2 of the single Columbine flowers, I fussy cut the one on the left & attached it to the other one. There was a lot of empty space there, so I thought the double bloom looked best. I split the greeting in two to fit the space & added a strip of textured green down the right side. I used my die resizing technique to make the flower panel narrower. 

All in all, a simple layout that lets these lovely flowers take center stage! Here are the Copics I used to color the flowers. Just so you know, I usually a little Prismacolor pencil on top of the Copics to even out the blend & add extra depth to the shadows & highlights. If you do this, pick colors similar to the Copics you use.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For my 3rd week as a Guest Designer for the Color Challenge (CC775), we have a lavender, purple & mint green color combo w/ the dessert option of making a winter card. Since it’s been below freezing all day here & lows in the mid teens, I think it feels pretty much like this poor bear & his little bird friend look. 

After coloring the bear in the tree, I added the cute little bird (from another winter image) on one of the branches. It was good thing the SU neutrals are allowed, because I made liberal use of the browns, grays & merlot colors! For the bg, I die cut some stitched hills out of scratch paper & used them to sponge in the snow hills & purple/lavender sky. 

After it was sponged, I dry embossed it w/ a snowfall folder & added stickles to the snow. I used the purple inks to sponge the greeting die cut.

Here are the Copics I used, You can see by all the different greens & blue greens, I had to work to get that mint color for the hat & scarf. The purple shades were used just on the bg of the image circle. I didn’t feel like cutting a mask, lol, so I just used the Copics to mimic the sponging I did on the lg background.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS676)! A big congrats to Maria, the newest Featured Stamper. She has a lovely gallery & there are many I would love to case, but for my card, I chose THIS card to case. I kept the wreath, fence & bird but used different images & dies & made mine a birthday card.

For my card, I die cut the fence, grass, a stitched ring for the wreath & a circle for the greeting, The little birds were colored then die cut & I used a bunch of leftover watercolor scraps for all the flowers & ivy. Sometimes it pays to hang onto the little pieces! I put it all together on a piece of patterned yellow dp w/ a very narrow green layer behind it

Here are the Copics I used for the little birds.
