Sketch 156 @ Card Patterns

This was a fun sketch to use.  I incorporated some wall paper from my stash as well as cardstock.  The sentiment is backed in twist paper!  Do you remember using that about 20 years ago?  Well, I still have some!  Just goes to prove you can use almost anything on your cards.

I fussy cut part of the rose from the wallpaper under the navy circle so I could pop it up on top of the rest.  I used an exacto knife---very carefully!  I'm really happy how it turned out.

This card will be going to one of the college students that I adore.  They love to get mail from someone besides their parents! LOL

Happy Easter

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!!!
