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!

DecoArt new Premium Acrylic Mixed Media Paint Home Project

Recycling and creating something new has always been one of my favorite things to do.   The square "shadow box" I've been saving for quite some time and now have forgotten what came in it.  It's part of packaging. 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. The background -which is a recycled 16x20 canvas coated in white gesso, was painted with Americana Deep Burgundy. Once dry, I dry brushed some Titan Buff (Premium acrylic) randomly. I painted the C in black premium acrylic.  Glued it to the bottom right corner of the shadowbox with tacky glue. I used a whie Posca pen to write my favorite verse around the edges of the shadowbox.  I used Tacky glue and hot glue to adhere the flowers.  I like to use both. Hot glue helps it sti…
