Merry Christmas Eve! For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC838), we’re visiting BlueBellGray & their Pinterest Board where I found THIS lovely pillow. I liked the watercolor look of it on the ends w/ the flowers toward the center. Mine turned out a little more purple than magenta, but I like it.

For my slimline card, I used Brushos but mixed the powder in a palette w/ water then floated in the purple/violets & pinkish reds in from each end of the 140# w/c paper. While it was drying, I stamped the flower on another piece of w/c paper  w/ fade out ink. I haven’t used it much & in my opinion, it really didn’t fade out in this just looks gray to me. I used the same color of mixed Brushos to paint the flowers, then die cut them & fussy cut the leaves. Some of the flowers were popped up & I used the Misti to split the stamped part of the greeting a bit in order to add the Wishes die cut below. A few gems finished it.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS776) this week, so a big congrats to Jo Ann! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the umbrella & watercolor bg, but used different dies, colors, layout & made mine a get well card.

My card started w/ a small piece of a leftover watercolor bg. It reminded me of a rainy day & I thought it would go well w/ my umbrella die & get well theme. I popped it up a bit & backed it w/ a lg pink layer. The white frame was made by die cutting it first w/ the stitched layer, then using a smaller die to cut out the center. It’s also popped up. I die cut the umbrella using a piece of white (for the narrow layer) & a lg paint chip that had several shades of pink. Only the center of the top part is elevated.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

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!
