Challenge 14: Japanese Birthday


I am so excited to be a guest designer @ Mark's Finest Paper Speedy TV  this month.
They have several challenges and I'm doing the sketch with a twist hosted by Karen Letchworth.
Please check them out.  I've used their stamps (which are excellent quality) on this card I've cut with my spellbinder die.  It features a Japanese lady & flower. 
 I colored my flowers with colored pencils.  I stamped the Japanese lady with versa mark and cherry cobbler embossing powder.  I fussy cut her out and then embossed her again with clear embossing powder.  Backed her with a piece of black card-stock die cut and embossed with cherry cobbler.
The sentiment was cut out using scissors.  I love the font on this.
Here's the inside of my card and I stamped on my envelope.  I know your going to get loads of inspiration @ MFP Speedy TV so head on over!

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!!
