Country Christmas @ MFP Speedy TV



I'm guest designing at MFP Speedy TV this month.
It was a priviledge as they have some great stamp sets.  The quality of them is superb.
They have 5 different challenges each week.  One for each day of the week.
How fun is that?

Sketch with a Twist hosted by Karen Letchworth
is a Wednesday challenge.
This week the twist was to use an animal on the card.
I've featured the Wild West Stamp set & made it into a Christmas card.
Just goes to prove -you can use anything with Christmas paper and it turns out great!
 I really love this stamp set. The details of the horse is really nice.  I just colored him with a couple of shades of brown and layered him on paper.
 This is the inside of my card.  I started with a decorative square from spell binders and cut 2 sides off to make this middle section.  The cute bird and snowflake are from Stampin Up.

My second card is for the Simple Salutations challenge.  Mountains and a Sentiment were the requirements.  Again I used a stamp from the Wild West set.  I love how it turned out as a Christmas Card.  Reminds me of a Country Christmas.

 I hope you'll join us for one -or all five challenges!  Here's where you go: http://mfpspeedytv.ning.com/

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!!!
