For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge this week (IC755), we’re headed to A Cottage in the City (or their Pinterest Board). After much back & forth, I couldn’t decide which I liked more..THIS or THIS..so I combined the two. I used the wood plank wall from the first for my background & the flower in the bottle for my main image.

For the background, I stamped the wood grain fence in gray ink then sponged on the lt blue, antique linen & gray inks to resemble the different wood planks. It looked a little too bright & new, so I took some thinned down white acrylic paint & dry brushed it on top & also spritzed some to get the drops.

On the main image, after stamping the flowers, I masked just the one lower petal & stamped the bottle. I used a Copic multiliner to extend the stems. I also took a couple of quick pics to show the basics of my out of the box die cutting method. You can also see the original tutorial HERE. 

Align your die where you want it to cut. Use a craft knife to cut around any areas that will go outside of the die cut boundaries & lift them over the die. You’ll have to go into area inside the die just a bit, but if you cut right on a thicker black outline, it will be almost invisible. Or in this case, I cut the top petals, then slid the die down under these areas. Now run this thru your die cut machine. Since these petals are on top of the die, they won’t be cut off.

All cut & it turned out perfectly! I wanted it over to the side like this to give me room for the greeting. I ended up putting it on a separate piece & I used the craft knife to cut a slit down the side of the bottle & tucked the left edge of the blue greeting flag into the slit.

Here are the Copics I used:

Such a wonderful photo site for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC751)! I was inspired by THIS picture.

I started by stamping the fairy & masking her. A reverse circle mask was placed around her & I sponged in the colors for the blue planet. Then I placed the circle mask on top of it & used black acrylic paint over the entire area.

After it dried, I added some different blues above a circular line I drew to represent the planet she’s sitting on. White acrylic paint splatters were added for the starry sky. I stamped another fairy, colored & fussy cut her to add on top of the stamped one & I white embossed the greeting on the dark planet.

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC744) & we’re headed to a Pinterest Board suggested by Colleen, called Quiltspirations. I used to make quilts but it’s been a while & there are some gorgeous quilts on this board. I was inspired by THIS quilt. 

My first thought was to paper piece the tree, but I thought again & decided to just cut the tree out of white & color in the pieces to resemble the tree on the quilt. The background is acrylic paint from an experiment gone sideways, but the colors seemed to work behind my tree. The smaller rectangle behind the tree started out white & I sponged on citron, mermaid lagoon & black distress inks. The dots are small punched circles.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
