Posts Tagged ‘Sponging’

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC729), we’re headed to a wonderful Christmas site called Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland. After much window shopping, I chose THIS item as my inspiration. I just rec’d this cute little Owl image & I knew it would be perfect.

After stamping & coloring this cute owl & his sleigh, I die cut them w/ their matching dies & attached them to one I cut out of white cardboard..it gives the image a little lift & sturdiness. For the bg panel, I die cut the frame w/ curves die & snipped out the topmost curve. I put the lower sections back into the frame because I thought they resembled hills of snow. The blue bg has a snowflake frame embossed on it & I sponged it & splattered it w/ water. A partial line of trees was tucked into one side & a lamppost added to the other side.

Here are the Copics I used to color everything.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Inspiration Challenge (IC728), we’re headed to a fashion clothing site. I did a lot of browsing & my inspiration came mostly from THIS dress. I liked the khaki & deep green combo but I couldn’t resist adding a little red.

I really love the look of Prismacolor pencils on kraft colored card. I used a combo of the black & rhubarb inks to ink the pinecone then used the Prismas to color it. The image was masked & I stamped the pine bough w/ the northern pine ink. The snow was added w/ a white Posca paint pen & I used a paintbrush & some thinned white paint to add the snow splatters. I sponged around all of the edges w/ a Brilliance moonlight white ink pad to add a little more of the snowy look.

Congrats to Karen, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast! She has a lovely little gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I liked the wreath on the brick wall, so I kept that. But I used different stamps, dies & colors & used a stencil for my brick instead of an embossing folder.

On my bg, I sponged Brilliance gold & lightning black inks thru the brick wall stencil. While the stencil was still in place, I stamped the splatter bg using the same inks to give the bricks a little texture. IRL, it’s very gold & shimmery! The wreath was stamped, colored & I used my out of the box die cutting technique & a circle die to cut it. Large script greeting fit perfectly inside the wreath & I stamped it in black first, then again in the lightning black so it has a nice shimmer, too. A gold circle layer was added & done!

Here are the Copics I used for the wreath:
