Such terrific nail art for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC756)! WOW! There are really some jaw dropping nails on that Pinterest Board & I kept coming back to THIS picture. Those colors really got me going!

So what to do? I figured the only way I was going to get colors close to those was to bring out the Copic Fluorescent markers. They hardly ever get used & they were just chomping at the bit. After stamping & coloring the daisies (& a few extra), I die cut using my out of the box technique & fussy cut the other 3. On the narrow layer behind the daisies, I used a brayer & a melon rainbow pad to bring in a little more color.

For the split background, I white embossed the dots on the black & stamped the dots in black on the white, then white embossed the greeting on a little word window black strip.

Here are the Copics I used:

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge this week (IC755), we’re headed to A Cottage in the City (or their Pinterest Board). After much back & forth, I couldn’t decide which I liked more..THIS or THIS..so I combined the two. I used the wood plank wall from the first for my background & the flower in the bottle for my main image.

For the background, I stamped the wood grain fence in gray ink then sponged on the lt blue, antique linen & gray inks to resemble the different wood planks. It looked a little too bright & new, so I took some thinned down white acrylic paint & dry brushed it on top & also spritzed some to get the drops.

On the main image, after stamping the flowers, I masked just the one lower petal & stamped the bottle. I used a Copic multiliner to extend the stems. I also took a couple of quick pics to show the basics of my out of the box die cutting method. You can also see the original tutorial HERE. 

Align your die where you want it to cut. Use a craft knife to cut around any areas that will go outside of the die cut boundaries & lift them over the die. You’ll have to go into area inside the die just a bit, but if you cut right on a thicker black outline, it will be almost invisible. Or in this case, I cut the top petals, then slid the die down under these areas. Now run this thru your die cut machine. Since these petals are on top of the die, they won’t be cut off.

All cut & it turned out perfectly! I wanted it over to the side like this to give me room for the greeting. I ended up putting it on a separate piece & I used the craft knife to cut a slit down the side of the bottle & tucked the left edge of the blue greeting flag into the slit.

Here are the Copics I used:

Congrats to Laurie, the newest Featured Stamper (FS692) on Splitcoast! She has a very colorful & fun gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the monster party theme  & balloons, but I used different images & dies & changed the layout.

For my monster birthday, after coloring & die cutting the colorful crew, I placed them in & out of a white frame & popped them up a bit. I did the same for the balloons, then stamped the birthday bg image in cranberry ink on the red bg. Just a touch of red was added to the bg balloons w/ a Prismacolor pencil.
