Negative Space: Wonder

I found an interesting challenge today.  Sentimental Sundays challenge #138 is to decorate a negative space.  I've never tried this before.  It was really fun.
I used a spellbinder to cut the center out. 
I also cut a frame to go around the outside of it.
I put brown behind my negative space and use a pop dot to raise my image.

My  image is Wonder from Mo Digital.
I colored her with Derwent pencils.

My sentiment is from Market Street Stamps.

 I had fun with the inside too.  I used the same spellbinder die to cut the brown. I used white embossing powder to the flowers around the edges.

 The verse says:
If we are ever to enjoy life,
now is the time,
not tomorrow or next year....
Today should always be our most wonderful day!

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!!!
