PSC36: Father's Day Color Story

I know you are going to want to do the challenge we have this week @ Perfect Sentiments Challenge.  Father's Day is this weekend and you are going to need a card.


It's easy:  Create a card with a Father's Day Sentiment on the FRONT
and use the provided color story as inspiration for the design of your card




Father's-Day-Color-Story 
Here's my card:
 My favorite technique is distressing.  I scrubbed the edges of the background paper with my scissors & even made a little cut in the upper right corner.  I sponged distress ink around the edges of piece I added.  I made a "postcard" for the next layer using my Paris stamp set, then added a "stamp" I cut out from the Sunday paper a while back.  Made my tag with my sentiment. 
 I found this poem on the internet & printed it for the inside of my card. 
 Here's a close up of the silver metal tag I stamped on, tied it to the twine & then added my Father's Day sentiment.  

You know we have a very talented Design Team.  They are each listed on the left sidebar.  We have 2 guest designer's that I hope you'll visit and welcome.  

If you participate in our challenge and link your card up @ Perfect Sentiments challenge  you might win a FREE IMAGE from our sponsor or be chosen as the top 3 favorites for the week.

DecoArt Americana Paint is best for Gelli Prints

I love making gelli prints.  I've used a variety of types of paints.  The best I've found is DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paints.  The consistency of the paint is perfect for spreading on the gelli plate. 
 On all the background gelli prints I used DecoArt Jacobean Floral stencil and the following Americana paint: Autumn Red, Antique Rose, Cadmium Yellow, and Moon Yellow. I changed which order I was putting them on the plate. This first one I embellished with Unity Stamps I'm so Happy and Ribbon by Really Reasonable Ribbon.  New Dawn Rooster by Unity Stamps and Wild Orchid Flowers.

 This last card-you can really tell how using numerous gelli prints together is like having matching designer paper!!  Except you created it yourself! The sentiment is from Unity Stamps, flowers from Wild Orchid and Flourishes. I hope you're inspired to design your own cards. Everyone loves getting a handmade card!

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.
