For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge, we’re headed to a wallpaper site. I was really drawn to several blue & white pictures & finally settled on THIS picture. 

For the bg, instead of the usual coloring in of the leaves, I only filled in the bg areas using a very dk navy Copic. I used a lt grey to add a little something extra in a few spots. The large leaf was fussy cut, popped up & added to a circle stitch frame w/ a piece of vellum behind it.

p.s. Have y’all checked out the new Rubbernecker Stamps release of Slimline dies? They are awesome & selling out fast! Click on any of the pics to take you to that die. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Inspiration Challenge (IC760), we’re visiting a Pinterest Boards called Happy Walls. I was really struck by THIS mural & used it for the inspiration for my card.

For my card, I stamped the image & left her mostly black & white. I added just a little color to her eyes & lips w/ an E53 Copic & also added some gold Wink of Stella on top of her lips. I used a lt cool grey Prismacolor pencil to add just a touch of contour to her face. The branches were all die cut out of silver glitter paper & I used the same Copic marker to make some of the leaves a champagne color. She’s popped up a bit on top of the ovals & then attached on top of a die cut floral frame.

For my card, the color I chose is a blue/gray. I wanted to use this wonderful rowboat & dock image & was looking thru some backgrounds I’ve made at various times when I came across a stack of Christmas card fronts I had saved. This little river w/ the snowy banks just seemed perfect for my boat. After I stamped it & colored w/ Copics I used the same into the window technique I posted last week HERE. Then I die cut the outer frame and stamped part of the greeting in the lower right. The top loop of the F went into the picture so I took a white gel pen and went over that loop to make it stand out.

The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used:
