Splatter Art 09545
For my Create card, I started w/ a splat embossing folder, inked it w/ the different colors of distress inks, spritzed it w/ a little water, then placed my piece of white card stock inside & pressed. It wasn’t’s still flat. (There’s a tutorial for this showing how to do it w/ daubers, but ink pads work great, too.) I wanted just a bit more of the raspberry color, so I used the Ink Spots image to add some here & there. I placed a couple of frames on top of it & added my stacked Create die cut on top. The Mug of Art was stamped, colored w/ Copics & fussy cut along w/ the paintbrush. A few sequins were added for a little sparkle.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

NCC Sail Away cu 06589
The Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast (SC544), is pretty straightforward except for the diagonal element across the top third. Instead of just putting something there, I chose to divide my panel there using 3 patterns of paper.
NCC Sail Away 06587
The sailboat image was stamped w/ denim ink onto ivory card stock and again on white. I paper pieced the white boat & bigger clouds onto the ivory version. Originally I die cut the paper at the top using the Sunburst die, but because of the pattern, it’s very hard to see. The greeting and an anchor were added on die cut pennants and I sprinkled some die cut stars around. Here’s a look at the inside. Sorry the pic is a little blurry. 🙂

NCC Set Sail 06436
For my seafaring card, after stamping & coloring the sailboat, I used the two sizes of ODBD circle dies to cut it and my out of the box technique to keep from cutting off the mast. After edging the sailboat circle w/ a black marker, I cut a white circle to put behind it and a larger circle out of the same dp I used for the largest pennant. The background panels came about because I had less than a full sheet of the two large strips so I added a narrow piece of the starry dp between the two and attached them to a large white panel I die cut using the largest die of the Flourished Star Pattern set. A smaller pennant, some die cut stars & the compass rose were added to finish.

Here’s a look at the inside using some leftover pieces. NCC Set Sail inside 06442
The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.

NCC Deer & Eagle cu 06461
My second card takes us to the mountains & forest. For this card, I got out my trusty little brayer and a rainbow ink pad and brayered over a large white panel. 
NCC Deer & Eagle 06456
I had the top white panel left after I die cut the white circle to back the sailboat card above, so I die cut it using the same Flourished Star Pattern die & used a slightly larger circle to make it a bit bigger and after determining the opening on the brayered panel, I stamped the mountain scene, did a little masking and stamped parts of it again to fill in. On the top white panel, I used a torn diagonal mask & brayered the same colors across it. I did even it up a tad using sponging. A reverse circle mask was used to sponge in the sun then I stamped the sun/eagle on top and the deer & tree at the bottom. The ground image was also stamped using the dark blue of the rainbow pad. I like how it just adds the hint of solid ground. The greeting was also stamped just under the circle opening.

The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and here’s a look at the inside using a leftover frame I had sitting around. I brayered it, stamped the tree, deer and the eagle.
