It’s my pleasure to host the 1st Inspiration Challenge of 2012! And we’re to a site called Fancy. After a lot of window shopping, I chose THIS for my inspiration. I loved all the glittery sea color on the fish scale pattern & it reminded me of this slimline die.

For my very glittery & shiny card, I die cut the fish scale once out of silver mirror board & once out of a smooth white glitter card. Before I removed the glitter one from the die, I put tape on the backside to hold all the pieces together. Using Copics, I colored in some of the inside pieces then put the silver frame on top & some of the silver inside pieces. The fish & seaweed were also die cut & I added a little Wink of Stella on the fins.  The silver mirror board is hard to stamp on, so I had to use Stazon for the greeting. For a little added sparkle, I put some stickles on top of the glitter pieces.


Here are the Copics I used:

It’s my pleasure to host the first Inspiration Challenge of June (IC757)! And such an inspiring site we have w/ Design Pool & their Pinterest Boards. THIS is the picture that inspired my card. 

I have a card today w/ most of the fish going one way & the one fish going the other. Doesn’t seem to bother him…he’s smiling! I think that’s probably me, lol. My mom always said I have a mind of my own & growing up, in order to get me to do something, she had to make me think it was my idea. Anyway, for my scene, I stamped the background fish w/ teal ink onto some turquoise paper that had been spritzed w/ a little bleach. I added just a touch of color to the fish. The main character was was stamped on white & fussy cut. I added a little stickles to him & to the stamped bubbles. The porthole was die cut (yay! I found a die that fit!). On the teal bg, I embossed it w/ a wave folder & some of it cracked, revealing the white core. So I just went w/ it & sanded off some of the high points to reveal the white. 

The greeting was split w/ half on the front & the rest inside. Below it are the Copics I used.

A big Congrats to Karen, the newest Featured Stamper (FS688) on Splitcoast! She has a fun, colorful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I liked the brilliant blue color & fish theme, so I kept those. But I used different images & dies & changed the layout.

This fun greeting cracks me up & the first thing I said when I read it was “we need a shark image” (or a bigger boat, lol). So the folks at Rubbernecker showed me this shark & I loved it. I colored the areas that needed it then used my out of the box technique to have him coming out of the circle. I put the layered circle w/ the shark onto a larger cobalt blue bg & die cut the different waves at the bottom to add on top.
