It’s my pleasure to host the first Inspiration Challenge of June (IC757)! And such an inspiring site we have w/ Design Pool & their Pinterest Boards. THIS is the picture that inspired my card. 

I have a card today w/ most of the fish going one way & the one fish going the other. Doesn’t seem to bother him…he’s smiling! I think that’s probably me, lol. My mom always said I have a mind of my own & growing up, in order to get me to do something, she had to make me think it was my idea. Anyway, for my scene, I stamped the background fish w/ teal ink onto some turquoise paper that had been spritzed w/ a little bleach. I added just a touch of color to the fish. The main character was was stamped on white & fussy cut. I added a little stickles to him & to the stamped bubbles. The porthole was die cut (yay! I found a die that fit!). On the teal bg, I embossed it w/ a wave folder & some of it cracked, revealing the white core. So I just went w/ it & sanded off some of the high points to reveal the white. 

The greeting was split w/ half on the front & the rest inside. Below it are the Copics I used.

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS695) so a big congrats to Chrysi! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the blues & watery looking bg but used different images, dies & swapped out a curved flower for the curved palm tree.

For my card, I made a watercolor bg which originally was going to be the feature of the card, but to my eyes, just wasn’t that impressive. So it’s now a background & I think it works better there. The flower image is a layered, multi part stamp & I used some different blues & greens to stamp it onto the circle. The partial greeting was white embossed onto the cobalt blue.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Such terrific nail art for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC756)! WOW! There are really some jaw dropping nails on that Pinterest Board & I kept coming back to THIS picture. Those colors really got me going!

So what to do? I figured the only way I was going to get colors close to those was to bring out the Copic Fluorescent markers. They hardly ever get used & they were just chomping at the bit. After stamping & coloring the daisies (& a few extra), I die cut using my out of the box technique & fussy cut the other 3. On the narrow layer behind the daisies, I used a brayer & a melon rainbow pad to bring in a little more color.

For the split background, I white embossed the dots on the black & stamped the dots in black on the white, then white embossed the greeting on a little word window black strip.

Here are the Copics I used:
