Such a lovely site for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge! After much window shopping, I chose THIS picture for my inspiration. My colors ended up being a little more blue than green, but that’s how it goes sometimes.

For my card, I stamped the lovely poppies onto 3 slightly different shades of teal using teal ink. I colored them all w/ the same Prismacolor pencils then die cut w/ the matching die. The background was done on glossy card & I stamped a bunch of different Birthday greetings w/ clear resist ink then brayered over it w/ a Kaliedacolor rainbow ink pad. I spattered it a little w/ wet paintbrush then dabbed off the water drops. The resist images were very easy to see at first (you can see it in the pic w/ the Prismas, below), but by the next day when I took the rest of the pics, the words had just about faded into the bg & only the water splats remained. I used a circle &  a rectangle frame to give my image & bg a little punch then added the die cut greeting. It actually says Wishes but I trimmed off the es. 

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

For the Inspiration Challenge (IC688) on Splitcoast, we have Global Accessorize as our site. I was inspired by THIS picture. I liked the teal w/ the black & white polka dots.

Maybe I shouldn’t have gotten so wrapped up with this particular picture because I couldn’t find any black paper w/ white polka dots. Unless they were really big & I wanted smaller. Soooooo…after die cutting a black piece of c/s I used my Japanese screw punch & 2 sizes of bits to drill the holes. I will mention that I first used an embossing folder that has 2 sizes of dots so all I had to do was drill out the embossed dots. The azaleas are a 2 part image & the solid part was inked w/ the Distress inks & spritzed before stamping then the outline part was stamped on top. This image does have a matching die but I don’t have it yet, so I fussy cut it. 

Here’s a look at the inside.

For the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast this week, I was inspired by THIS picture on the Plow & Hearth site Brenda chose. I turned the rain boots into cowboy boots & hydrangeas into roses, but otherwise they are the same, lol.

What a week it’s been around here..we’ve had so much rain & thunderstorms, I’m really glad now that I bought a pair of rubber rain boots. Every night I have to slosh thru the front yard to bring in the bird feeders. If I don’t, then I have to spend a couple of hours searching thru the woods for them because the raccoons will get them & drag them off into the woods (ask me how I know). Then I slosh thru the yard every morning to put them back. I also don’t want the bear that got into everyone’s trash a couple of week ago to come down the drive after the feeders. But my rain boots, while they have roses on them, are nowhere as stylin’ as these! 

To make my card, I stamped the big rose, masked it, then stamped the smaller one twice. After masking the roses, I stamped the (new!) boot, masked it, then stamped the one behind it. Everything was colored, then I did a little out of the box when I die cut the panel. The greeting was stamped & colored & I added a die cut swirly (it reminded me of a lasso) & a fussy cut hat (new!). Then I added glitter glue & a few crystals. 

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