Challenge 14: Japanese Birthday


I am so excited to be a guest designer @ Mark's Finest Paper Speedy TV  this month.
They have several challenges and I'm doing the sketch with a twist hosted by Karen Letchworth.
Please check them out.  I've used their stamps (which are excellent quality) on this card I've cut with my spellbinder die.  It features a Japanese lady & flower. 
 I colored my flowers with colored pencils.  I stamped the Japanese lady with versa mark and cherry cobbler embossing powder.  I fussy cut her out and then embossed her again with clear embossing powder.  Backed her with a piece of black card-stock die cut and embossed with cherry cobbler.
The sentiment was cut out using scissors.  I love the font on this.
Here's the inside of my card and I stamped on my envelope.  I know your going to get loads of inspiration @ MFP Speedy TV so head on over!

 We had some first timers and some seasoned painters. Everyone had a great time!

DecoArt new Premium Acrylic Mixed Media Paint Home Project

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…
