Posts Tagged ‘Sponging’

A big Congrats to Mary, the newest Featured Stamper (FS700) on Splitcoast! She has a fantastic gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the soft floral in the oval but I made my own bg paper, used different dies & did no-line coloring on the flowers to give them a softer look like her flowers.

After stamping the flowers w/ the pale Memento colors, I used Copics & a little Prismacolor pencil overlay, then fussy cut one group & did out of the box on the ones inside the oval. The bg paper was made by die cutting the different leaves into a piece of copy paper & using it as a stencil to sponge on the Color Fuse inks.

Here are the Copics I used:

If you love illustrations for Children’s Books, you’re going to love the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC759) this week! I was inspired by THIS fun illustration.

After coloring & die cutting the Dino & trees, I created a “wagon” using a truck die. Rubbernecker makes a wagon die & I truly thought I had it, but didn’t when I made this card.  I have since rectified that little problem 😀  . A dark green Prismacolor pencil was used to make the slats on the side of the wagon. For the background I used a stitched hills die to cut the ground out of brown & made a mask w/ it to sponge in the green hills. A cloud stencil was used for the sky.

The greeting was stamped on a little banner die cut. Here are the Copics I used:

A big congrats to Trudy, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS to case. I really did case her card..even though it may not look like it. I loved the color in the bg w/ the die cut on top so that’s what I kept. I used different colors, dies & sponging instead of brayering.

I took a few extra pics to show you how I got the color in precise areas & left a white highlight.

First, I attached the black die cut to the white card stock w/ temporary adhesive (pic above). Then I used the makeup brushes to apply the colors in specific areas.I didn’t worry about getting in on it since it’s black, I knew it wouldn’t show.

You can see the negative white image when I remove the die cut. I started to use it just like that, but then decided it added more drama to put the black die cut back in on top, but I shifted it slightly, to leave a white highlight on the right side (pic below). I like how it resembles stained glass.

The birthday greeting is part of a balloon image & trimmed off the balloons after die cutting it & attached it to an oval frame.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
