For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC833), we’re going to a wonderful Lighthouse Pinterest Board where I found THIS lovely picture.

For my southwest card, I started w/ a background I made quite a while ago. I thought the purples & oranges were good colors for a desert sunset scene. The bg was done by smooshing the Marvy metallic markers onto a rubber brayer, spritzing w/ water & rolling it over a piece of white card. If I remember correctly, I did it once w/ the yellow, orange & silver colors & again w/ the purples & silver. The hills & cactus plants were die cut out of a few shades of purple & I used part of the leftover orange areas for the cowgirl, cowboy & roadrunner. They were also popped up on foam to give them a little depth.

Thanks 
so much for stopping by!

Today we are taking another look at the Our Daily Bread designs December release! Aren’t you over the moon with these beautiful images & fabulous dies? As a special treat, I’m including a little tutorial on how I did the double die cutting. The stitched circle around the horses is part of the white stitched frame. Tricky, huh? It’s actually a combination of out of the box & into the window. I will mention, I do both of these techniques on a regular basis so I don’t have a problem coloring my image first. If you’re trying this for the first time, you may want to color afterwards. That way if you have to try again, you won’t be out a lot of time & effort coloring it.
This is also for IC524 Inspiration Challenge & THIS was the button I was inspired by.

Birthday Paints 08015 After I stamped my image w/ Memento onto a 4.25 x 5.50 piece of X-Press It, I colored it w/ Copics. The horses were colored to resemble Indian Paints. I still had the image in my Misti, so I over stamped it w/ Versafine to really sharpen the details.  Now comes the Double Die Cutting how to…(click any picture to make it bigger.)

Birthday Paints cu 08013 To finish, I stamped the mill scene onto textured chocolate using the sepia ink twice then added the highlights w/ a white Prismacolor pencil. The leftover outer stitched circle frame was colored w/ a Copic & put back around the image. A punched fence was attached behind the image & the oval stitched greeting added on top. 

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

Very Dappled Gray cu 08048
Weekly-Favorite
Today’s Color Challenge (CC561) on Splitcoast, has some beautiful colors & the first thing that came to mind was a dappled gray horse. 
Very Dappled Gray 08047
For my very dappled gray & her foal, I put them in my Misti, stamped w/ Memento, then colored them w/ Copic markers. It took me longer than I thought it would to color the horses….kind of funny when they are basically “gray”. I had to use the blender quite a bit to achieve the dappled look and this is probably the most I’ve ever used a black Copic, but I really needed it for the shadows. Since the other colors are pretty much shades of each other, I used those Copic colors to color in the grassy area & add a bit of dappling to the lower background. Then I overstamped with Versafine to sharpen the details. The stitched rectangles & stitched ovals along w/ the plain ovals & rectangles were used to die cut the layers & frames. 

Here are the Copics I used. (The only reason N3 is there is because C3 was running low on ink & I didn’t want to stop to fill it up.)
