FS598 - Magic

Congratulations to this week's Splitcoaststampers' featured Stamper, Selma. I chose this card as my inspiration:

I focused on Selma's:
-oval frame around the focal image
-split colour panel
-'horse' focal image

I changed:
-horse to unicorn
-moved the sentiment below the focal image
-no ribbon

I used two rainbows to create my oval frame and fussed quite a bit about how to best hide the 'seams'. All images were coloured with Copic markers and I added Stickles to the unicorn for sparkle. I did not colour the edges of the unicorn die cut to match the frame behind it because of the similarity in colours - I felt that the white edge helped him stand out a bit more (he's also popped up on foam tape).

Tropically Yours Stamp of Approval - Geo-Hello

Have you got your Tropically Yours Stamp of Approval collection yet? The Cabana Tiles are so fun - everyone on the Creative Team has been having a blast with them! I used one repeatedly here to make a geometric pattern. I coloured the triangles with Copics before inlaying them back into the hexes. I used a partial sentiment from Stand Tall.

Here's my card for this week's Muse Challenge, where Kim gave us this inspiration:

I focused on Kim's:
-coffee theme
-polka dots
-rainbow of pastel colours

I reversed Kim's dots - I put them on the centre and left the space around them blank. I used similar pastel colours as the donus on my dots.

MCV104 - Calm & Bright

Here's my card for the current Muse: ChristmasVisions challenge where Kimberly gave us this inspiration:

I focused on Kimberly's:
-green/blue trees
-pink/yellow element
-blue sky

I started by stamping the snowflakes with Versamark and embossing with clear embossing powder. Next, I created my snowdrift mask with Post it Tape. Then I created a stencil and masks using a tree die and blended my trees, masking them so that some would appear to be behind others. I blended two colours of ink on each tree. Once the trees were done, I removed all the masks and blended the sky. Finally, I stamped my sentiment, popped up my panel and added Star Dust Stickles along the bottom edge and in the snowflakes for some sparkle.
