PSC30 Mother's Day @ Perfect Sentiments

Happy Wednesday! Perfect Sentiments Challenge wants to see what YOU can come up with doing our challenge this week.

You could win 5 digital images from Robyns Fetish shop











It's not much longer till Mother's Day so this is the week to make sure you have your's done!
The sentiment needs to be on the front of the card.
The twist: have to use handmade flowers

The pink cardstock was altered by stamping flowers & vines using Tim Holtz distress ink. Then I took a white gel pen & did some coloring on top of it. I have a close up on the 3rd picture.
 Our image was provided by our sponsor this week. Isnt' she cute?  I colored her with pencils & distress the edges.  I'll be using her again!
The main part of my flower: I used 1 inch wide strip from my 12 inch designer paper & scored every 1/4 inch, folded back & forth & pressed into circle-had 2 small circles already punched & waiting & hot glued them to the center.  I sandwiched it in between 2 diecut flowers (Stampin up dies) and topped it with a button from my stash after tying some taffeta around it. Cute button huh?

Christmas Canister-Recycled with Deco Art

I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it! Does that happen to you? I used some new products from Deco Arts. Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister. See the tutorial at the end of the post. Want to get in on a challenge with some prizes?? Check it out at Party Time Tuesdays!
**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.

DecoArt Americana Paint is best for Gelli Prints

I love making gelli prints.  I've used a variety of types of paints.  The best I've found is DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paints.  The consistency of the paint is perfect for spreading on the gelli plate. 
 On all the background gelli prints I used DecoArt Jacobean Floral stencil and the following Americana paint: Autumn Red, Antique Rose, Cadmium Yellow, and Moon Yellow. I changed which order I was putting them on the plate. This first one I embellished with Unity Stamps I'm so Happy and Ribbon by Really Reasonable Ribbon.  New Dawn Rooster by Unity Stamps and Wild Orchid Flowers.

 This last card-you can really tell how using numerous gelli prints together is like having matching designer paper!!  Except you created it yourself! The sentiment is from Unity Stamps, flowers from Wild Orchid and Flourishes. I hope you're inspired to design your own cards. Everyone loves getting a handmade card!
