CCEE1430, Recipe


Shirley continues on as hostess.  This week she says to follow this recipe:  2 circles, one oval, two or more octagons or decagons on your card.

This one took me awhile to decide what to do, but I do like the card.  The background was watercolored and then the die cuts were added and finally sequins.

 I don't usually combine challenges, but missed most of them this week, so here goes:

WT488 - Make a Gate Card
F4A230 - Bright and Beautiful
QFTD220 - Mattsgirl
IC450 - Country Curtains

For the QFTD challenge, I chose this gorgeous work of art.

Obviously, I changed it to a gate card, eliminated one layer and used different designer papers. What a fantastic color artist Katie is...what a gorgeous, gorgeous gallery. I could case her forever and may be doing so in the future! Congrats, Katie...awesome gallery!!

For the inspiration challenge, I chose this beautiful, colorful pillow.

It's raining here all day today and I'm off to an outdoor wedding reception!!! Lucky me...and the bride and groom and guests! Gonna get a little crowded inside!!! LOL.

CCEE1429, Chicken

Wow, Shirley's on a roll!  Must be one of those round "rolls" of hay!  She says to make a card with a chicken!

Art Impressions to the rescue!  First, I did a watercolor resist with the chicken wire to "fence" my rooster in....he's on the prowl for a hen somewhere!  Then, I stamped my Art Impression chicken and colored him with Copics.  Now the hen house is safe 'cause he's fenced in!

Come on...join us in this "chicken" challenge.  Please add 1430 to keywords on splitcoaststampers and link back to the CCEE Blog here.

Come on....don't be chicken; play along!

CC487, Daydreaming


This week's color challenge is Soft Sky, Soft Suede, Pear Pizzaz and Crisp Cantelope.  Dessert is to make a feminine card.

I had none of these colors, but did have some very close.  I also used watercolor to make a background.  I used a Sassy Cheryl digital called "Daydreamin" and found the sentiment on the net.  Some rolled roses (cantelope), some Soft Suede and Soft Sky flowers and a Pear Pizzaz mat and highlighting finished off my card.  This is a 5x7 card since I needed extra room to add everything.

Come and join in the color challenge!!

FS388, Heather a/k/a Rica

Today's FS is Heather aka Rica...a new gallery for me, but oh, so beautiful...Heather is a very talented color artist and has some great images and designs.

I chose this beautiful card. I fell in love with the dramatic effect Heather created and wanted to see if I could come close. I used a piece of KandCo. designer paper as my base and swiped the inks across it unti lI got the effect I wanted.

Thanks, Heather, for such great inspiration. Enjoy your time as FS!
