There’s a new challenge in town on Splitcoast..just started up this summer. It’s the Watercolor Wednesday Challenge & today the challenge (WCW015) is watercolored die cuts. I think the aim to watercolor on die cuts. I went about it in the opposite direction, but I hope that will still count.

This skyline die is brand new & is only pre-order right now, but will start shipping soon. I had it in my mind to make a city scene at Christmas so I rather randomly painted a piece of watercolor paper w/ greens & reds. I used Brushos & mixed the powders in a plastic palette before dropping them, wet into wet, onto the w/c paper. I used a heat gun to quickly dry it & this stopped the color from totally blending out & gave me some hard edges & the splotches I was looking for. After it was dry, I die cut it. I also die cut a piece of scratch paper & used the negative top part as a mask & sponged in the background buildings before popping the die cut version up w/ fun foam & attaching it. Before I put it all on the slimline card front, I splattered it w/ white acrylic paint, then stamped the greeting (new & also soon to be released!). A narrow stitched hill was attached on top to represent snow on the ground. I dotted some of the snow w/ stickles for a little sparkle.

Thank so much for stopping by!

Welcome to September!  And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club Sept Christmas Challenge! We have a year of new Christmas Challenges!  You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. Bet you’re wondering what the challenge theme is..I’d love to tell you but you’ll have to go see for yourself.


For my card, I die cut the front shadowbox & added the purple deckled frame on top. The cabin & trees were stamped on a lg white panel, masked then the snow & sky were sponged in. I used some thinned white acrylic paint in a mini mister to spritz the falling snow. (It’s thinned to about a 3 to 1 ratio & has been in this mister for a couple of years. Still works great!) Some extra trees were stamped & die cut to add dimension around the frame & stickles was added to the snow & trees for some sparkle.

Here are Copics I used for the cabin.

We have a really wonderful site for the Inspiration Challenge this week..Fine Art America. I had a really hard time choosing, but finally went w/ THIS picture. 

I didn’t have any fox images or dies (will have to see about that!), so I used a deer family die instead. I die cut them out of sand colored c/s then used Prismacolor pencils to add a little color to them.  The snow hills & birch trees were cut out of white & shaded w/ Prismas. On the lg black bg, I splattered it using a paintbrush & some white acrylic paint. Usually, I like to have a greeting on the front & it feels a little odd not to have one & not to use any stamps at all, but I guess I’ll get over it  😉 

Here’s a look at the inside.
