A big congrats to Nancy, the newest Featured Stamper! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the fish theme & layout, but used different images, different dies & a different background technique.

My bg was an accidental creation..I was cleaning the caps of my Copic markers by dropping rubbing alcohol in them then letting it drip out. Well.. no way I could waste the ink, so it’s now a bg. I also added some drops of just the alcohol to get a sort of Bokeh effect. Then I added the colored & die cut fish & starfish. I didn’t have a coral branch like Nancy used, so I die cut a bare tree & used some of it for my coral.

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

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Such a super site for the Inspiration Challenge (IC684)! After much browsing, I chose THIS. It reminded me of a lovely stamp I have but have not used.

I used my Misti to stamp the image onto watercolor paper & stamped it once w/ lt green ink on the leaves & again w/ pink ink on the flowers. After watercoloring it, I decided the image outlines didn’t show up enough, so I stamped over it w/ gold ink & heat embossed w/ gold powder. I used an angled border die to cut the bottom & insert a piece of flower print paper, before putting them back together. The gold stripe edges are washi tape.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats to Mary, the newest Featured Stamper (FS596) on Splitcoast! She has lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the Friend & flower theme & layout, but I used different colors, die cuts instead of stamps & a circle opening instead of an oval.

The colors on my flowers came about when I was refilling some Copics the other day. I noticed the inside of some of the caps were a total mess so I poured a little 91% isopropyl alcohol into them & thought it was a shame to waste all that color. So I poured it out onto a white piece of card stock. I liked the way it looked so I used it for the flowers & greeting. The lg circle burst was die cut into the white & a turquoise layer put behind. Then all I had to do was arrange the flowers, add a few sequins & some Copic tinted crystals. I will mention in case any of you have trouble (like I do) getting the letters straight…I left the letters in the die, added tiny dots of glue to the backsides, then turned the die over onto the c/s & pressed thru the die holes to release. Worked like a charm!

Here’s a look at the inside. I used the negative of one of the flowers as a stencil. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
