Stamp your Encouragement


One of the new stamps was this butterfly. The kit came with the solid image and the detailed image.  

I love to create my backgrounds with stencils.  The flower is a stencil from DecoArt called Succulent.
I just held it where I wanted it and sponged distress inks.
I have the new Tim Holtz Tonic Stamp Platform.  I love how you can stamp your image twice! You get a clear image every time!!
I stamped the solid butterfly with Mustard distress ink.  Lined the detailed butterfly up with stamped overtop with Barn Door red. 

I used some colored cardstock to mat my sentiment and the card base. Really made the colors pop!!!


I'm entering Craft Stamper challenge-Anything Goes

The Mixed Media Challenge #39-Photo Inspiration:  I was inspired by the flowers.  The end of summer is here. The colors make me happy!!

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!!!

Christmas Canister-Recycled with Deco Art

I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it! Does that happen to you? I used some new products from Deco Arts. Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister. See the tutorial at the end of the post. Want to get in on a challenge with some prizes?? Check it out at Party Time Tuesdays!
**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.
