Posts Tagged ‘Sponging’

Congrats to Jan, the newest Featured Stamper (FS659) on Splitcoast! She has one fab gallery & it was really hard to pick just one. But THIS card really stayed w/ me so I picked it to case. I kept the big, patterned die cut letters & most of the colors, but I used different stamps, different dies & turned it into a Christmas card. 

For my version, after coloring the many moose (mooses? meeses? I know the plural is the same as the singular..it just looks weird, kwim?), they were die cut w/ the matching dies. The bg was sponged w/ Distress inks & splattered w/ water. On the Merry letters, I sponged the Brilliance ink onto red c/s using several new Rubbernecker stencils, spritzed it w/ shimmer spray,  then die cut them. I added some Washi tape toward the top & a couple of stitched snow hills at the bottom before adding the moose herd. The Christmas was white embossed on black & tucked under the washi tape.

Here are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC720), we are going to Burton & Burton. There were a lot of things I wanted to use for inspiration, but I kept coming back to THIS picture. 

After I die cut the trees, deer & a white front, I sponged the Distress inks down another white panel, then splattered it w/ some picket fence Distress stain.  The die cuts were attached (I used a black Prismacolor pencil on the birch trees) & the little scene was spritzed w/ a shimmer spray.  

After I decided how tall to make my little scene, I used my Resizing Technique to divide the top white panel in two, then shorten them (this technique works for making die cuts smaller as well as larger!). I had some corrugated white cardboard saved from a light bulb pkg, so I used it to pop up the 2 white panel a bit. Stickles was used on the white snowflake & a few clear sequins for additional sparkle. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Supplies:

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:
