National Scrapbook Blog Hop//PRIZES

My Perfect Sentiments team is hosting a blog hop from today 5/4/12 @ 6PM till Sunday 5/6/12 @ 6PM. There are going to be lots of inspiration/lots of prizes! 

This is a "card" challenge with a twist
My Sentiment is Happy Birthday. Sentiment has to be on front of card.
The twist: use vellum

I'm going to show you the new technique I learned from my Stampin Up Demonstrator. Vicki Cobler

I embossed the flower stamp on the front of the vellum with white embossing powder. The you TURN IT OVER & color it in with markers. It takes a lite hand.  Since the vellum is being backed by white cardstock-you can't even tell it;'s vellum.  It's attached in the four corners with a small adhesive dot. I covered the dot with a half back pearl.
Here's a side view of the embossed image.

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.

DecoArt new Premium Acrylic Mixed Media Paint Home Project

The initial C I purchased from Joanne's. The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice.
