PSC56 and a happy accident


This week at Perfect Sentiments we're using our scraps!
I have TONS of scraps like everyone else.  Every piece on this card was already on my desk.
Even the birdcage die cut!  
 The burgundy strip is a left over on a Graphic45 project I made.  The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of thin cardboard -I then stained it with distress ink.  I stamped the sentiment and covered with black embossing powder-the whole thing was stuck with powder (I didn't let it dry good) so I just went with it. Turned around when that dried and embossed the sentiment in cherry cobbler. Turned out pretty cool!

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!!!
