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!

I’m so excited to have been asked to be a Guest Designer for the Splitcoast Color Challenge this month! And for the first challenge (CC773) of 2020, we have a blue, yellow & brown color combo, w/ trees as the dessert option. I don’t tend to use a lot of brown so it was a good challenge for me. 

It’s kind of funny, but after I was told the colors, I went to bed that night & kept thinking “what am I going to make?”. When I woke up, I actually had a picture of this card in my head. All I had to do was to try create it. And a tree w/ a deer is actually an excellent way to work that brown in to the mix. For the bg panels,  I used some blue Brushos on watercolor paper & just let the watery mixed blues run & spread down the paper. After it dried, I cut it into 3 panels & attached a little cardboard to the backs then onto a deckle edge espresso brown panel. I added a larger lt blue panel behind it then the die cut espresso tree on the left & a saffron yellow sun behind it. The deer was also attached to a matching cardboard die cut & I used Prismacolor Pencils to add the color.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Welcome to November & to the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club November Christmas Challenge! 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.

 

For my card, after stamping, coloring & die cutting the cute image, I sponged just a little tumbled glass in the upper left corner then used a snowflake frame, white ink & some transparent glitter powder to emboss the snowflakes. On the back panel, I used broken china & a little shaded lilac in addition to the tumbled glass to sponge about 2/3 of the bg. Then I put it into my Misti, used white ink on the top, going to a darker blue at the bottom & used the same sparkly powder. The greeting was white embossed & I used the sparkly powder to emboss the die cut blue snowflake.

Here are the Copics I used.
