A big Congrats to Monique, the newest Featured Stamper (FS680) on Splitcoast! She has a fabulous gallery & it was hard to pick, but I finally decided on THIS card to case. I kept the blue flowers theme & intricate bg cut out, but I used different images & dies & left off a few layers.

After coloring the blue daisies, I die cut them w/ a rounded stitched rectangle die. I used my out of the box die cutting technique to keep from cutting off the petals on the left side.  On the white bg, I die cut the left side w/ a circle lattice die & added just a few of the centers back in then backed it w/ navy blue. The butterfly was colored w/ the same colors & die cut w/ its matching die & I split the greeting..white embossing half on navy & stamping the rest on the white bg. I used a word window punch on the “Happy” part.

Here are the Copics I used. (I also used a few Prismacolor Pencils in similar colors on top.)

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC737), Stacy chose a group of tote bags. Lots to choose from & for my card, I was inspired by the bright colors of THIS tote bag. 

After I colored the daisies, I used a trio of blue Copics to color in the bg around the flowers. Thankfully it was a small area because it’s harder than it looks. And from experience, start w/ the lightest color first..it’s really hard to walk that dark color back, lol. I added a white frame to brighten it up a bit then attached it to the embossed orchid colored bg. I thought this embossing folder mimicked the quilting of the tote bag & I used a white gel pen to add dots at the intersections. The greeting was stamped w/ the dk navy ink & I drew the little flower over the i. 

Here are the Copics I used:

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.

Paper:  Staples 110# white, X-Press It, gray

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.
