I have a pretty easy Easter card today that fits a couple of Splitcoast Challenges..the Free for All (F4A525) & yesterday’s Ways to Use It (WT783). The F4 challenge is to use a rainbow of colors & the WT challenge is curves. I certainly have a rainbow of colors & bunny got curves, all right!
I’ve had the idea for this card for awhile & I don’t have a paintbrush image (what I really wanted), but I do have this pencil image. So let’s pretend these are watercolor pencils! For my watercolor bands, I started in the middle & wet the area for the yellow w/ plain water, then floated in the yellow. Then I did the blue & purple on either side to give the yellow a little time to dry before I added the pink & green. I didn’t want the areas to run together too much. When it was completely dry, I stamped the yellow peep, masked & stamped the others. The pencils were colored to match, fussy cut & added on top.

Here’s the inside.

I’m so excited to have been asked to be a Guest Designer for the Splitcoast Color Challenge this month! And for the first challenge (CC773) of 2020, we have a blue, yellow & brown color combo, w/ trees as the dessert option. I don’t tend to use a lot of brown so it was a good challenge for me. 

It’s kind of funny, but after I was told the colors, I went to bed that night & kept thinking “what am I going to make?”. When I woke up, I actually had a picture of this card in my head. All I had to do was to try create it. And a tree w/ a deer is actually an excellent way to work that brown in to the mix. For the bg panels,  I used some blue Brushos on watercolor paper & just let the watery mixed blues run & spread down the paper. After it dried, I cut it into 3 panels & attached a little cardboard to the backs then onto a deckle edge espresso brown panel. I added a larger lt blue panel behind it then the die cut espresso tree on the left & a saffron yellow sun behind it. The deer was also attached to a matching cardboard die cut & I used Prismacolor Pencils to add the color.

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.
