Today is the Day; Sing!

 My new favorite stamp set:  Market Street Stamps: Life is Beautiful.  I've used 3 of the stamps out of this collection:  Today is the Day was stamped on the background with versa mark, the little flower was stamped on the blue background around the edges & of course the beautiful bird with sentiment is the main focus.

I colored the stamps with aqua painter & stampin up markers.  
Ribbon:  brown; Really Reasonable Ribbon, yellow; Stampin up 
Die cuts: spellbinders
DP: MME, SU & Colorbok
Flower: Wild Orchid 
Stickpin: Little Yellow Bicycle
Bird was stamped with stazon black
flowers stamped with SU Early Espresso distress ink

I'm entering the following challenges:
iClassygirl  Sketch
Market Street Stamps color challenge
Paper Secrets distressing
Cut It Up use die cuts

Love how this turned out.  Can use for birthday or thinking of you.

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!!!

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.
