Perfect Sentiments Challenge 15

Love-Love-Love this challenge!!  Using a birthday sentiment-you need to do some resist embossing.

I've taken a shot of the plain paper showing my first couple of steps.  I Embossed the paper using SU dots. Rubbed Versa Mark on top and heat embossed dazzlin diamonds.  The I took my sponge and rubbed distress ink over the entire page.  As you can see-the ink doesn't stain where the heat embossing has been done.  It's one of my favorites!  Altering paper.

 Then I took it a step further.  I die cut a leaf & used the pattern to ink on top of it all. As you can tell-where the original heat embossing was-the image resisted more.

I embossed my sentiment with Dazzling Diamonds & then heat embossed again with black embossing powder. cut it out using scissors with a little scallop.  Outlined it with the bigger scalloped edges.
The Butterfly was die cut Stampin Up die. I used 2 layers of paper & one layer of vellum.  Still have the vellum challenge in my blood!  I attached them using a brad.


VIOLA!  My finished card.  I love it!
Hope you'll be inspired to join the challenge.  We have a wonderful prize from My Little Somethings







        I'm looking forward to seeing what YOU create!

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!!!

DecoArt Stencils-Wall Art

I wanted to create  a nice design on my bathroom wall. I used DecoArt Traditions acrylic paint. Several stencils were used: First I taped off 7x7 squares leaving an inch between them. I painted them White Wash White. It took a couple of coats to cover up the lavender on the wall.  The I started layering using Botanical stencil and Antique Green. I used all 3 designs and just moved the stencil around on each square.  To get a different shade, I added some of the White Wash White to do the 2nd leaf. The third one I used yellow. The flower is from the Garden collection and is Reusable -stick on stencil. I did some of the flowers in Black Plum and some in Yellow. The bird is from the Bee's and Birds stencil. I did two coats of Black Plumb. I ended up sealing it with a coat of Satin Varnish.

 I hope you'll be inspired to paint on your walls!!
