Mother's Day with Unity Stamps

Unity Stamps are some of my favorites.
I wanted to play along with their challenge this month.
They give you 3 options-a color challenge, a sketch, or a layout.
I started with the color challenge-that's where the turquoise/aqua colors came from.
I couldn't seem to get the coral colors incorporated-so I switched over to the sketch.



I turned it up-can you tell?
I stamped and heat embossed down the center of white cardstock with one of their background stamps. 
I stamped the flowers on a piece of specialty card stock and colored in with distress inks and a paint brush. I love the water color effect.
Add a sentiment, some ribbon and pearls to finish it off.

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!!!
