Ain’t Misbehavin’

Hi there, I hope your week is going well!

Today I’m sharing a card that is very different from anything I’ve tried before.  I used the February 2019 Hero Arts My Monthly Hero card kit which is chock full of images inspired by the Art Deco period.  As soon as I saw the kit, I thought of all of the beautiful magazine covers from that era and decided to recreate one, in particular, that caught my eye.

If Friends Were Flowers, I’d Pick You!

Hi there and happy almost-Friday!

When I was in Seattle last week I spent a lovely afternoon making cards with the owner of Trinity Stamps as well as a few other very talented and delightful women.  I feel so blessed to be able to do a bit of travelling to make my crafty dream of meeting, in real life, card makers I’ve met on Instagram!  I stamped up this sweet girl while I was there and tonight I colored her up and reminisced about the  wonderful time I had.

May This Autumn Season Bring A Bountiful Harvest…

20181112_212840

Hi there!

Today’s card features a pretty stamp from Art Impressions, from their Windows on the World collection.  I really enjoyed using watercolors to color this 2″ x 2″ image!

I stamped the Autumn stamp in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink onto Arches Cold Press watercolor paper.  Then, I used a small 2 round brush and Mission Mijello Gold watercolors to color the image.  And that’s about it!  To finish up, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.

Thanks for visiting!
