Easter Challenge @ Perfect Sentiments

I am so ready for spring!  Many things happen-trees & flowers start blooming, colors start appearing in our scenery, and best of all:  we celebrate Jesus rising from the grave! 

So this weeks challenge @ Perfect Sentiments our challenge is to feature an Easter sentiment.  The twist?  To use 3 colors from this inspiration photo:


Look at those spring colors!!

 If you participate you will be entered to either win a FREE Digital Image from Shelly's Images or be picked for Perfect Sentiments Top 3.  There are tons of very inspiring entrants-hope you'll be one of them!



 Here's my card:

Started with the blue textured paper from Stampin Up. Punched the edging with Martha Stewart punch. Then  I stamp versa mark and embossed with dazzling diamonds embossing powder from SU. (you can't really see the shimmer-but it's there!)  I printed my Easter Sentiment on my computer & using decorative scissors to cut around it-after I lightly sponged pink around the edge of the white cardstock.  The butterflies are from SU diecut.

I love how it turned out.  Looks like spring to me!

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!!!
