Unity Stamp Monthly Challenge

Every month at Unity Stamp Company they have a challenge -you can use the color scheme, the card sketch or a layout sketch.  I've used the color scheme and card sketch together on this one.
 
One major rule: You can only use Unity Stamps.  Well-I wanted to do a Halloween card.  I don't normally-but the color scheme was screaming-----HALLOWEEN!!!!
 
I knew I had won one "spooky" stamp-so I pulled it out.  They I looked thru my stash of Unity stamps and decided to use this phone/camera-not sure what it is-but I like it.
I did some stenciling with my brick wall stencil from Retta.  HERE-Stencils by Retta.
 I cut my spooky spider with one of my Cricut Cartridges.  Stamped the Spooky stamp with black staz on.  I put glossy accents on both the spider and the stamped image.  Look at the little line I drew for the spider trail!! Cute!
 Below is a picture of the inside of the card.  I used another Unity Stamp on the orange piece-I love how the card turned out!  My son & daughter in law will be receiving this when Halloween gets here.
Thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate any comments you want to throw my way!

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!!!
