MFP Sketch w/a Twist "Wild West" Happy Birthday

Welcome to challenge 15 @ Mark's Finest Paper Speedy TV
MFP Speedy TV
I am guest designer for one of their weekly challenges: they have several so check them out!
Wild West Stamp Set   I stamped the image on Crumb cake with black stazon.  I lightly filled in some color with pencils.  I took some Tim Holtz distress ink and sponged around the edges and the whole thing.  The twist was to add buttons.  I had a chipboard tag -I glued Tim Holtz papers and sanded around the edges and then sponged distress ink. I heat embossed the birthday sentiment with black and added the buttons.  My ribbon is from Really Reasonable ribbon.  It grounds my image to the "road".  This has been a favorite stamp set ever since I got it. I didn't have a lot for men and this works perfect.  Please join us this week-you could win a prize!  Jump on over & see what Karen Letchworth has done for inspiration.

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!!!
