Bokeh Technique-VERY COOL!!

Saw a new technique that I just had to try. I love the results.  See the video below to see the watercolor-stencil technique (Bokeh)
 Use watercolor paper 140pd. Distress inks.
 When colored-I spritzed with Lindy's Stamp Gang.
 Card base next. Layer with different colored circles.  Beautiful results!
 Below I stamped the sentiment directly onto the card front.  The crown was cut using my Cricut machine.  The leaves are from Paper Artsy.  Left the background white on this card.
 Thank You was cut with my Cricut.  Ribbon from Really Reasonable ribbon.
 The sentiment is an SVG file from Kate's Cutables.
 
Thanks for stopping by today.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!!

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!!!
