For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC824), we have the Peruvian Connection Store & Pinterest Board where I found THIS picture.

For my card, I die cut the coverplate die out of heavy w/c paper & before I took it out of the die, I put painter’s tape across the back to hold all the inset pieces together. I removed the frame part & attached it to one I cut out of cardboard to elevate it a bit. I had a bunch of colors of the Brushos already mixed in a palette so I added water & painted the inset pieces w/ the different colors. When they dried, I went over them all w/ some iridescent w/c medium to add the sparkle. Then I peeled them off the tape & attached them inside the frame. The little greeting & a couple of die cut flourishes were added to finish.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC806), we’re headed to a watercolor Pinterest Board where I found THIS lovely portrait. I don’t have a child’s face image so I used Jacqueline, instead.

I put a piece of watercolor paper into my Misti & stamped her w/ Morning Mist versaclair ink..it’s a dk grey so it’s not as high contrast as black. I used some soft teal & soft peach watercolors & a lot of water to paint the panel. I didn’t even mix the color..it was some that was left over in my palette & I liked the colors. When it dried, I stamped the greeting across the left bottom corner & used a pen to add the XOXO. In my head, I saw it as a stylized glamor portrait that the sender would autograph. 


Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS741) this week! So a big congrats to Heather, the newest FS. She has a beautiful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the layout & green (because I LOVE greens), but used different images & dies & made my card a floral instead of a St. Patrick’s Day card.

For my card, after stamping, coloring & die cutting the poppies, I did the stems & leaves & fussy cut them to add them to my white circle. The smaller bg was sponged w/ the lime greens & a little teal on the ends. The larger bg is one I made a while back w/ a die cut & some Brushos, but I wasn’t crazy how it looked alone. But it worked great behind my sponged layer.
Here’s how it looked by itself. See? Nothing to write home about. I took some die cut leaves to use as a mask, then sprinkled the Brushos & spritzed w/ water.

I put the sponged panel into my Misti & stamped w/ the Versaclair then put all my layers together & added a few gems.

Here are the Copics I used for the poppies:
