It’s my pleasure to host the 700th Inspiration Challenge (IC700)! Wow! That’s a lot of inspiration. And I chose a place that was a discussion of colors. For my first card, I was inspired by THIS. I love all the blue butterflies.

After coloring & die cutting the butterflies, I sponged the Distress inks onto my white panel, then sprayed it w/ thinned out white acrylic paint. I thought it still needed more, so stamped over the sponged areas w/ the same Distress inks using a splatter bg image.

Here’s the inside & the Copics I used for the butterflies.

Stamps: Rubbernecker Stamps: Brush Butterflies , Splatter Bg
Paper:  Staples 110# white, X-Press It, gray
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, Versaclair nocturne, Distress inks tumbled glass, evergreen bough, weathered wood, black soot
Accessories:  Rubbernecker stitched rectangles, Fluttering Butterflies , Nested Banner Stitch, Rectangle Stitch Frame , Floral Frame dies, Copic markers, white Posca paint pen

 

My second card is all about shades of gray & black. My moonlit scene was inspired by THIS picture.

After die cutting the birches & grasses out of black, a circle of white & a bg out of gray, I sponged on a little black & gray onto the gray bg.

I used white & lt. gray Prismacolor pencils to add some depth & shading to the moon, birches & grasses.

Here’s the inside.

A big congrats to Diana, the newest Featured Stamper (FS636) on Splitcoast! She has a really wonderful, fun gallery & I chose THIS to case. I really liked the kraft bg & the little butterfly, so I kept those. But I used different images, turned mine vertical & added an embossed border.

For my CAS card, I stamped the flowers w/ Versaclair then added the white dots w/ a Posca paint pen & a little red dot for the center. On the butterfly, I used a white Prismacolor pencil. I stamped all but the Wishes part of the greeting, then substituted the Wishes die cut in its place.

Here’s the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my turn & my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge this week! And we’re headed to the V&A (Victoria & Albert) Museum. There are so many wonderful things to see there & after much browsing, I chose THIS for my inspiration. 

For my butterflies, after stamping a coloring, they were die cut w/ their matching dies. I used a white paint pen to add the dots on the wings & outlined them w/ a black pen.  I came across just a strip of polished stone background I made a long time ago & thought it looked good w/ the color in the butterflies. I die cut it w/ a flag die, using my Resizing Technique to lengthen the flag. The greeting was added in the corner & some sequins for a little sparkle.

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

Thanks so much for stopping by!
