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!

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!
