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!

Supplies:

Stamps: none
Paper:  Staples 110# white, lime green
Ink: Distress inks twisted citron, mermaid lagoon, black soot

For my second week as a Guest Designer on the Color Challenge (CC774), the colors are a lt blue, dk blue & white. Very clean, crisp colors! I don’t have the exact colors so I came as close as I could.

I love this tall coneflower die & I thought it would be great in white, so I die cut a circular window behind it, framed it w/ a stitched circle then created a blue bg to put in the window. Using a lt blue, dk blue & white acrylic paint, I dry brushed them across the card stock, then sprinkled on some glitter before some of it had dried. Acrylic paint dries so fast that it only took in some streaks which I think looks great IRL. The greeting was heat embossed in white on the dk blue strip & I added a few clear sequins.

I made this for the final Dare to Get Dirty challenge for 2019 at Splitcoaststampers. Lydia shared a video HERE for an easy technique using a gel plate, acrylic paint & a small object. (You may have to be a Fan Club Member to view the forum. Click the blue link to find out how.) It looked interesting & easy so I gave it a try.

I ended up doing 2 pressings of the gel print. The first time, I put neon yellow & neon orange paint onto my gel plate, pressed & slid the object (it happened to be an empty plastic ring from my ATG gun) then pressed the white card onto to it & rubbed. It didn’t look quite dramatic enough, so I repeated the process using black paint & pressed it to the same piece of card. I like it, but it’s awfully busy. I thought the colors would fit a Halloween card so I die cut all the pieces & arranged them as you see. I used a few fluorescent Copics to add color to the roof & windows & added the die cut ground out of neon orange card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
