It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS706) & a big congrats to Elizabeth! She has a wonderful gallery & I love how she makes sets of cards. I chose THIS card to case. I kept the rainbow of color & image repetition, but used different images & dies & changed the theme.

For my card, I inked the silhouette poppies w/ the different Color Fuse inks & stamped them several times. The second largest slimline die was used to cut the panel & I did my resizing technique to make it a bit shorter in order to fit my A2 card. The tutorial shows how to make it longer, but it works just as well when going shorter. I get a lot more use out of my dies by making them fit the size I want instead of the size they are. I used the same inks to sponge a rainbow bg to use behind the poppies. I had a little strip left over so I put it under the greeting.

I really like the bright, happy colors of these ink pads & I think they look great w/ the silhouette poppies.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC603), I chose This scrapbook page. I don’t really do scapbooking so mine is a card  😀 but I liked the silhouette images against the sky. 
For the background, I used the Wrinkle Free Distress technique by smooshing the brown Distress inks onto my craft sheet, misting pretty heavily, then pressing mostly the bottom half of my water color paper on top. (Repeat this until you get the coverage you want.) After wiping the sheet off, I repeated this for the top half of my paper using the blue inks. Since watching paper dry is not one of my strong suits, I dried it w/ my heat gun then put  into my Misti and stamped the hiker &  trees w/ the sepia Versfine. I had to stamp them each about 2 or 3 times to get a good impression on this watercolor paper. I used a white marker to edge the panel & the white Prismacolor pencil to highlights to some of the rocks. I had a large brown paint chip & I liked the names of the colors so I let them show at the bottom. The greeting was added on a circle & backed w/ a larger circle from the paint chip.

Here’s a look at the inside.
