 Mark's Finest Paper & Stamps sketch with a twist and Simple Salutations challenges



First up is Sketch with a twist.  I've used two tree stamps from their stamp collections and colored with colored pencil-several layers to show depth.  Then highlighted with glitter glue.  The Winter Wishes is from their Christmas stamp set as well. 


This next one is for the Simple Salutations challenge.


 I've used their Poinsettia stamp set and cut holly leaves with my cricut cartridge.  The paper is from SU.  The poinsettia is colored with several layers of colored pencil. For final dazzle I added red berries with glitter glue.  Turned out really nice.

I just love making Christmas cards!  I hope you'll check out the challenges over at
 MFP Speedy TV  You'll find loads of inspiration.

It was a pleasure being their guest designer this month.

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!!!
