Life Is Beautiful

There are a couple of different techniques on this card.
My new embossing folder-the flower stems from SU on the edge. I used my SU sanding block & then gently rubbed some tea stain distress ink over it. Then I outlined with a black gel pen. Final touch: blued a tiny pearl in the middle.
Second: I diecut the center of my card out with my new spellbinders die from SU. Center my cute geni underneath & viola! 
When you attach your front, add some dimensionals -makes it show up so much better. You really can't see it with my picutre- but in person it really pops.

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!!!
