Mother's Day with color!

This week @ Perfect Sentiments Challenge we're getting ready for Mother's Day.  It's just a few weeks away. 

Look at the beautiful color pallet we're to use!  The challenge is to use at least 3 of the 5 colors.
There should be a Mother's Day sentiment on the front of the card.

My Mom is a clean & simple kind of lady.  I didn't want to get too fancy.  I ran my green thru an embossing folder.  I used a Stampin Up stamp for the flower.  The sentiment was found at

Our wonderful sponsor this week is Shelly's Images.  

There's a ton more inspiration at my team members blogs-so check them out:

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!!!
