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

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!!!
