Wishing a friend Peace


This gorgeous stamp set is from Mark's Finest Papers.  The clear cling stamps are very good quality.  They stamped very sharp images as you can see.  
Thanks to my cyber friend Karen L for sending to me!
My tag background paper I colored myself.  I really like to use the spritz mists to color my own paper.  This one I used started as white shimmer paper.  After spraying green and golden yellow, I used my brayer to blend them together.  Then took water & dropped on top & lightly dabbed with paper towel.  I used EK Success corner punch, then back it on black card stock.
 The cherry blossoms I stamped with black stazon on top of another piece of paper I sprayed with pink mist.  To show more depth, I used a white gel pen on the tips of the front flowers & smudged it with my finger.  Added a small amount of green marker to the leaves & smudged with my finger.
I printed a saying from Marilyn Monroe and added to the inside of my card. I'm entering my card in MFP Speedy TV in the sketch with a twist challenge.  Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you are having a great weekend!

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.
