Julie Warner –
I started this yesterday for the MIX Challenge (MIX59), but didn’t finish. So when I saw THIS picture on the Inspiration Challenge (IC432), I colored this fabulous orange blossom image, added some of the same shabby white embossing powder to it and added it to my mono print background. Since I did the tutorial for the mono print, I thought it might be nice to make an appearance for the challenge. Here is the tutorial I did way back in 2009 when I was on the Splitcoast Dirty Dozen! Mono Print Tutorial. I also did and updated version for ODBD last year when the Gelli Plate craze hit. No Gel Plate, No Problem. The background for this card is very similar to the ones I did for this tutorial. I just really like these colors together. After I made my mono print background using pigment inks, stencils & stamps, I added some of the shabby white embossing powder used the Perfect Paper Crafting mini rulers to make the 1/16 inch teal mat. I added the orange blossom image, also w/ a teal mat and the little criss crossed strips are just pieces that were trimmed off.  Julie Warner – The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.

A big CONGRATS to Jeanne, the Featured Stamper today on Splitcoast (FS336)! What a fabulous gallery she has! I chose her May card to case. I kept the layout and use of fancy die cuts, but I used different images, slightly different colors and used the die cut clover images instead of flowers.

The images are from Our Daily Bread designs. I used a background I made from a Mono Print #2 technique tutorial ( It’s also on the ODBD Blog as  No Gel Plate, No Problem!). It’s a fun alternative to gel plates called Mono Printing. For the clover, I stamped it several times, colored w/ Copics and die cut them using the matching clover die. I arranged them around my die cut sentiment, added a couple of fancy die cuts behind it and attached to my 5.50 4.25 card. I added a couple of fussy cut little bees from the clover set.

These are the Copics I used to color the clover.
