Cowboy Girl Birthday!







Happy Saturday!
I've designed a custom birthday card.
The request was for a 17 year old girl using cowboy boots.




I hand drew the boot on tan SU cardstock. Ran it thru Big Shot using Sizzix Flourish embossing folder. I inked up one side with SU Bravo Burgundy which created this cool two toned look.

 I used Zig Artist Sketching Pen to outline the boot and draw the heel.
 Next, I applied Metallic Lustre -Fab Fushia with my finger.
Shiny highlights!

                     I knew I wanted to show both boots standing up. I designed a Z-Fold.
                   Started with 10x7 white cardstock. Scored at 2 3/4 and 5 inches.
             Covered with designer paper.
             folded and attached the boots with SU dimensionals.

This is did dots using Liquid Pearl White Opal

Then I decorated with Flourish with a Bling pearls and 
Wild Orchid flowers. 
The sentiments were stamped on tan cardstock and punched the edges with scallop punch.


Thanks for stopping by. Have a terrific weekend!

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!!!
