Belated Mother's Day Card

I was on vacation for Mother's Day, so I didn't get to celebrate with my mom.  We celebrated Mother's Day yesterday.  I already made a card for her----then I saw Julia Stainton's new card!

Check her's out @ Belle Papier.  Here's mine:

 I did some sponging & distressing on a couple of pieces of white cardstock with some stencils I've had forever!
 After the layers, I added a flower & bird.

The Envelope

We ate lunch @ Texas Steakhouse & went back to my parents house & played canasta.  It was tied 2-2.  Me & Dad against Mom & Donnie.  Was so much fun!

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!!!
