OWSE Arch Swap February



I've been participating in a monthly arch swap at OWSE.
For February we were to incorporate a favorite song.
 Above is the arch I created.  I started with cream cardstock. Did some stamping and inking.
Then I layered some diecuts (flower and flourish then the heart)
I wrote the lyrics to the song around the edge of the heart.  In the middle I stamped a heart and filled it in with Tattered Rose stickles.  Add some pearls top & bottom and a pink bow.


 This is the arch I received from my partner-Amberlee.
Looks as if there are some layers of tissue paper.  Some washi tape with music notes.  The flower is 3-4 layers with gold glitter or stickles and a purple rhinestone in the center.  Lace at the bottom.

She typed the lyrics & posted them on the back:

Never knew I could feel like this
Like I'd never seen the sky before.
Want to vanish inside your kiss,
Everyday I love you more and more...

Come What May, Come What May
I will love you until my dying day!

It's fun seeing what other people's styles are. When the year is done I'll have enough to make an album.

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!!!
