For today’s Color Challenge (CC759) on Splitcoast, the colors are mango, rose & pear. To be honest, these colors are not on my go to list & I don’t have these colors, so I came as close as I could. 

For my card, I first inked a craft sheet w/ distress oxide inks, misted then pressed my paper to it. After I dried it, the leaves were stamped, masking as I went. I pressed some mini Distress inks to a solid version of the leaf, spritzed it then stamped it inside the outline leaves. It still didn’t look right, so I used a paintbrush & some embossing ink & painted inside the leaves & clear embossed them to make them stand out a bit more. The green pear top layer was die cut & the window was cut using my resizing technique to make it longer than a std rect. The 3 little leaves are from a couple of small punches. The fall part of the greeting was stamped & the hello is a double stacked die cut. 

Here’s the inside:

It’s my pleasure & my turn to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC718) & we’re headed to Piper Classics. They have a lot of lovely items & I was inspired by the colors in THIS picture.

I saw a similar card, a very long time ago but I can’t find it for anything, now that I’m looking for it. I think it was probably by Michelle Zindorf, but I’m not certain. Doesn’t it always happen that way? Anyway, it stuck in my head & I thought this would be a great way to use this Single Fall Tree image.

After I masked off the water area & sponged in the ground & bg tree line, I reversed the mask & sponged in the water. I used a few yellow & orange Copics to add the trees/bushes in the distance, then I put the tree image into my Misti & stamped it w/ Distress oxide inks in walnut & espresso. First one was stamped, then I moved the panel to stamp it again, & again, & again. I turned it upside down, lined the trees up, & stamped them in tea dye for the reflection trees. After all the trees were stamped, I added some white lines w/ a gel pen in the water & sponged a little walnut around the edges.

Here’s the inside.

This card is for the Splitcoast Ways to Use It (WT752) & also Angie’s Dare to Get Dirty Challenge. For all the details go to the Dare to Get Dirty Forum ..but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member (click the blue link to find out how).

For the Ways to Use It, the challenge is to have some kind of special edge treatment. Mine was made by using a border punch on a couple of brown strips & tucking those under 2 edges. After stamping & coloring the pumpkins & sign post I added the greeting & a few floating leaves to complete the scene. Pretty simple!

Here’s the inside & below it are the Copic I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
