For my second week as a Guest Designer on the Color Challenge (CC774), the colors are a lt blue, dk blue & white. Very clean, crisp colors! I don’t have the exact colors so I came as close as I could.

I love this tall coneflower die & I thought it would be great in white, so I die cut a circular window behind it, framed it w/ a stitched circle then created a blue bg to put in the window. Using a lt blue, dk blue & white acrylic paint, I dry brushed them across the card stock, then sprinkled on some glitter before some of it had dried. Acrylic paint dries so fast that it only took in some streaks which I think looks great IRL. The greeting was heat embossed in white on the dk blue strip & I added a few clear sequins.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Inspiration Challenge (IC736) on Splitcoast, we’re headed to a scrapbooking blog called Artsy Albums. There were a bunch I was inspired by but THIS one really stuck with me.

I knew I had a cute little Ferris wheel die & that it would be perfect! I die cut it in lt & dk grey sparkle c/s & the little buckets in several colors & put it all together. I used a tiny heart punch on all the many colored hearts. I had a left over piece of teal dp that I used for the lower layer behind the main panel & on the pink, I sponged a slightly darker pink ink thru a stencil for a little pattern. The cute little clouds were stamped & shaded slightly & the greeting was stamped w/ a dk grey ink.

My cowgirl Valentine fits right in w/ the Free For All (F4A466) Challenge to make a Valentine w/o using a heart.

After coloring & fussy cutting my seemed easier than trying to mask her & color the bg dark blue, I die cut a big circle moon for her to lasso. I added the greeting onto the moon, then added the fence boards at the bottom & some stars at the top of the card front.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
