Technique share from Paper Artsy

New technique by Ellen Vargo this week at Paper Artsy
I had to get inky with her!
 
 I started with a brayer and antique white acrylic paint.
 Then I brayered by 2 fresco paints-Spanish Mulberry & Rose
 I also used a purple acrylic paint.
 Once dry-I added texture with a stencil and liquitex modeling paste.
 One of the chipboard pages I brayered some antique white over top of the colors.
 

 I cut them apart to make post cards for a swap I'm participating in.  Did some inking with Black Stazon using a Stampin Up stamp.

Here's the back of the post card. I stamped using Stampin Up Post Card stamp. I distressed it with mustard yellow, old paper, vintage photo and walnut stain.

I LOVE THEM!!!!  Thank you Ellen for the 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!!!
