We have a very colorful sock site, called Joy of Socks, for our Inspiration Challenge (IC747). I chose THIS pair of socks for my inspiration. Good thing I kept the pic, because the socks have been removed from the site!

For my get well card, I die cut the various succulents out of teal, lime & scraps of watercolored paper then die cut the white pots. I wanted a large window, so I used my die  resizing technique to make the (original window is only 4 panes) window half again wider & longer. I’m not gonna lie..it was a little tricky but it worked. The valance was cut using a curved border die & fun orangey-red paper. Another, subtle print was added behind the window & I popped the whole thing up just a tad w/ cardboard. I wanted a little pop of color, so I added some little red flowers to a couple of the plants.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Keep safe & be well!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC738), we have a lovely place called Ferris Wheels & Carousels. I was inspired by THIS picture.

After I colored 2 of the single Columbine flowers, I fussy cut the one on the left & attached it to the other one. There was a lot of empty space there, so I thought the double bloom looked best. I split the greeting in two to fit the space & added a strip of textured green down the right side. I used my die resizing technique to make the flower panel narrower. 

All in all, a simple layout that lets these lovely flowers take center stage! Here are the Copics I used to color the flowers. Just so you know, I usually a little Prismacolor pencil on top of the Copics to even out the blend & add extra depth to the shadows & highlights. If you do this, pick colors similar to the Copics you use.

The Sketch Challenge (SC585) on Splitcoast today turned out to be almost as challenging as the colors were yesterday. I made it even harder on myself by choosing to resize the fancy die & try to cut the greeting w/ a curved die.

After stamping the bike scene w/ Memento, coloring w/ Copics & over stamping w/ Versafine, I die cut it. But as mentioned, I had to make the fancy die a little narrower to fit inside the red layer. The die is mirrored on either side so I had to cut it to just shy of the center point, turn it around, bring the opposite side in & cut to again, almost the center point. The end result removed about 3/8″ of the center section. Then I had to repeat this to varying degrees w/ the other two, smaller panels. Aye yi yi! I probably just should have used a plain die, but I wanted more of the red to show through. The sky was mostly sponged..I masked just the top area of the fence then filled in between the fence boards w/ a Copic.

Here’s a look at the inside (I just doodled the frame) & below it are the Copics I used. Keep Moving inside 08766
