A big congrats to MaryJo, the newest Featured Stamper (FS710)! She has a wonderful gallery & always leaves the sweetest comments. I chose THIS card to case. I kept the watercoloring & floral centerpiece but I used a two part watercolor rose, heat embossed the bg & partially watercolored it.

On my card, I inked the solid part of the stamp w/ reds, yellows & greens, misted it then stamped it. After it dried, I stamped the outline part w/ black & die cut it & attached it to fun foam. The background was white embossed onto the backside of watercolor paper (it’s a little smoother). I started watercoloring it in the roses, got to a little past half way down, & decided I liked the rest of it unpainted. I used a white frame & a piece of vintage white vellum behind the rose to give it a little separation from the bg.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC771), we’re headed to Stuffed Safari. They have some really cute stuffed critters & was drawn to the bats & cats on THIS page.

My card today is pretty easy. I die cut a white panel then masked off an area on either side & sponged the colors inside the unmasked area. Put it in my Misti & stamped the spooky tree image a few times. Just to give it a little punch & imitate a layer, I added a couple of thin black strips on either side. Stamped the greeting & some bats & done!

Here’s a look at the inside.

There’s a new challenge in town on Splitcoast..just started up this summer. It’s the Watercolor Wednesday Challenge & today the challenge (WCW015) is watercolored die cuts. I think the aim to watercolor on die cuts. I went about it in the opposite direction, but I hope that will still count.

This skyline die is brand new & is only pre-order right now, but will start shipping soon. I had it in my mind to make a city scene at Christmas so I rather randomly painted a piece of watercolor paper w/ greens & reds. I used Brushos & mixed the powders in a plastic palette before dropping them, wet into wet, onto the w/c paper. I used a heat gun to quickly dry it & this stopped the color from totally blending out & gave me some hard edges & the splotches I was looking for. After it was dry, I die cut it. I also die cut a piece of scratch paper & used the negative top part as a mask & sponged in the background buildings before popping the die cut version up w/ fun foam & attaching it. Before I put it all on the slimline card front, I splattered it w/ white acrylic paint, then stamped the greeting (new & also soon to be released!). A narrow stitched hill was attached on top to represent snow on the ground. I dotted some of the snow w/ stickles for a little sparkle.

Thank so much for stopping by!
