For the Inspiration Challenge (IC719) on Splitcoast, we’re heading to Dormify. A fun site (especially for back to schoolers) & I was inspired by THIS poster. I really liked the orange/blue combo.

To make my beach scene, I masked off the water & sky area & sponged in some oranges for the ground/sand, added a little brown to the sides along w/ stamping a splatter image for a little texture. The mask was reversed for the water & sky & those were sponged. I used some Tombow markers to “ink” up the palm trees & stamped them on either side. Surfer boy Zeke was colored & fussy cut & the old woody was die cut. The greeting is partly another stamp combined w/ some die cut & colored letters. I added the white wavy polaroid type frame for a little separation & to make the greeting stand out.

Here is the inside & the Copics I used:

It’s my pleasure & my turn to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC718) & we’re headed to Piper Classics. They have a lot of lovely items & I was inspired by the colors in THIS picture.

I saw a similar card, a very long time ago but I can’t find it for anything, now that I’m looking for it. I think it was probably by Michelle Zindorf, but I’m not certain. Doesn’t it always happen that way? Anyway, it stuck in my head & I thought this would be a great way to use this Single Fall Tree image.

After I masked off the water area & sponged in the ground & bg tree line, I reversed the mask & sponged in the water. I used a few yellow & orange Copics to add the trees/bushes in the distance, then I put the tree image into my Misti & stamped it w/ Distress oxide inks in walnut & espresso. First one was stamped, then I moved the panel to stamp it again, & again, & again. I turned it upside down, lined the trees up, & stamped them in tea dye for the reflection trees. After all the trees were stamped, I added some white lines w/ a gel pen in the water & sponged a little walnut around the edges.

Here’s the inside.

It’s my pleasure to host the 700th Inspiration Challenge (IC700)! Wow! That’s a lot of inspiration. And I chose a place that was a discussion of colors. For my first card, I was inspired by THIS. I love all the blue butterflies.

After coloring & die cutting the butterflies, I sponged the Distress inks onto my white panel, then sprayed it w/ thinned out white acrylic paint. I thought it still needed more, so stamped over the sponged areas w/ the same Distress inks using a splatter bg image.

Here’s the inside & the Copics I used for the butterflies.

Stamps: Rubbernecker Stamps: Brush Butterflies , Splatter Bg
Paper:  Staples 110# white, X-Press It, gray
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, Versaclair nocturne, Distress inks tumbled glass, evergreen bough, weathered wood, black soot
Accessories:  Rubbernecker stitched rectangles, Fluttering Butterflies , Nested Banner Stitch, Rectangle Stitch Frame , Floral Frame dies, Copic markers, white Posca paint pen

 

My second card is all about shades of gray & black. My moonlit scene was inspired by THIS picture.

After die cutting the birches & grasses out of black, a circle of white & a bg out of gray, I sponged on a little black & gray onto the gray bg.

I used white & lt. gray Prismacolor pencils to add some depth & shading to the moon, birches & grasses.

Here’s the inside.

Supplies:

Stamps: You’re What Happened
Paper:  Staples 110# white, black, gray
