Happiness Always PSC11 & PPA124

The Challenge: Create a card that reflects an "Anniversary" sentiment.
The Twist: Use the following photo as inspiration for your card. You can be inspired by the colors, textures, whatever suits your fancy.








 I inked the edges of the lace with Tim Holtz vintage photo ink.  The sentiment happiness always is from stampin  up. Flowers are prima with a tiny brad in the center.
 I embossed this piece of black cardstock & then used my Stampin Up Sander to sand the pattern to get.
 I colored this piece of chipboard with Tim Holtz vintage photo ink.  Didn't try to cover it solid-I like the light & dark spots.
Voila! My finished card. I wanted soft & romantic. I can't seem to do that! I love the vintage feel.

I also used the sketch from Pals Paper Arts Challenge #124

Stacked Pumpkins Class

Fall is in the air!  The painters were excited to paint this great 16x20 Social Art-networking Design!  The did a fabulous job!  They learned how to use their paintbrushes to create thin lines as well as thick ones.  Dry-brushing technique.  The #2 round brush is perfect for the vines surrounding the bottom of the pumpkins.

 We had some first timers and some seasoned painters. Everyone had a great time!

Happy Birthday with Paper Artsy stamps/masking

I was inspired by the current challenge at Paper Artsy-masking.  I've created this card using a different kind of masking. I brayed paint onto my gelli plate and this pushed the Paper Artsy flower stamps into the paint. Then I pulled the print. Wow!! The stamp pulled the paint off creating a negative space. I hightlighted the stamps with watercolor pencils. Did some additional stamping with Paper Artsy vine, then stamped The Happy Birthday sentiment from Stampin Up.  Added 3 die cut flowers on top with dimensional s to finish the card. I LOVE how it turned out!! I hope this inspires you!!!
