Today’s Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS439) on Splitcoaststampers is Friendship & this should be perfect for a friend, to just drop a note to say hi.
I thought this greeting would be perfect w/ the Big Mouth Bass (isn’t he a cutie?) w/ some waves, Bubbles & dragonflies floating around. Only problem was, the Fishing Pole kinda faced the wrong direction. Misti & a piece of blank rubber to the rescue! (Here’s a tutorial so you can see how it’s done.) I put the fishing pole into my Misti & the blank rubber piece under it. Inked & stamped the fishing pole several times onto the rubber. Wanted to make sure I got good ink coverage. Then I place the white card stock on top of the rubber & rubbed it w/ my hand & presto! A reverse image! Then I added the fish, waves, bubbles & dragonflies. After coloring, I added a little Wink of Stella to the fish & dragonflies. Hopefully you can see it a bit in the closeup below.
Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

The Ways to Use It Challenge (WT552) on Splitcoast today is all about cats. My Halloween card has a couple of metal confetti cats…every good witch needs a cat, right? Personally, I have never had a cat…I’ve had parrots for so long, bringing a cat in just didn’t seem like a good idea….I picture Sylvester & Tweety Bird. Eventually, the parrot is going to look a lot like lunch to the cat!
For my ghoul friends, I stamped the witch feet on the right & used the mirror image (or reflection) technique for the one on the left. After coloring both, I over stamped the one on the right w/ Versafine but used a very fine Micron pen to go over the one on the left. I accidentally dropped the dark purple Copic on the background so I just did a Pointillism technique in the area all around the witches. The hats were fussy cut and added on top of the bracket border strip along with the greeting.
