With baby showers coming up, I thought I'd design some gift tags.
These first two tags started out with thin chipboard. I painted gesso on and let it dry. The did some splats on top with Tim Holtz Distress stains. Let them sit for a minute and then dab off with a paper towel.
The bronzed pewter give it a really pretty shimmer.
I used bits and pieces of Graphic 45 baby paper. The crocheted flower above is made by Melody.
The mulberry flowers and pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
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!
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!!!
