Trigger Tuesday @ Moxie Fab



The first time I saw this trigger photo I knew I wanted to try the new ombre technique. I love how there are multiple layers of the same color.  I also love the butterfly.

Check it out for yourself at Moxie Fab World: Trigger Tuesday








For the technique inspiration, I referred back to a card Lynn at http://themangoboysandme.blogspot.com/ 
had done a while back.   She's the BEST at CAS.

 The cute little butterflies and the Mother's Day sentiment is from Stampin Up.
I used Tim Holtz Ice Spruce distress ink.
I wanted more details, so I used SU gold smooches around the edges of the butterfly.
I used a fine tip brown pen to outline each one and then highlighted the outside edge with a white Posca pen.

I don't think I've conquered the ombre technique.  I'll keep practicing.
Thanks for stopping by.

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!!!
