Time to Think About the NEXT Holiday...

...and it is one of my FAVES!!! I love Valentines Day! I love the colors, I love the candy hearts and I LOVE the Art Impressions Valentots! I stamped this little cutie with black Stazon onto watercolor paper. Then, I used STAEDTLER watercolor crayons to color this little darling in! I scribbled some of the crayon onto scrap paper and then I used a water brush to liquefy the color and painted her in! I added some glitter to the pom pom on her cap and here is my creation!
Where did the darling roses come from you ask... well... I MADE THEM!!! here is how! I used a push mold from STAEDTLER and some FIMO effects clay. I pushed the clay into the mold,removed it and here is my flower! The best part? I can make as many as I any color I want and I can make a whole cookie sheet of them in like 20 minutes! If you done want to by alot of clay... you can always so what i did and that is to add some extra color for dimension by scraping some STAEDTLER karat soft pastel chalks into a little pike and brushing the color onto the clay before baking it! It is a great effect and adds dimension and character super fast! i adhered them to my card with glue dots! easy peasy!Thanks so much for popping in and be sure to keep watching this page for more great creations!!

Auntie Lovelle...Pulling Out All The Stops!

Here is a fun card I created! I have been house shopping and it is a daunting task! I thought she looked like I felt! OVER IT!!! LOL anyway... I colored this image from Art Impressions in using STAEDTLERS KARAT WATER COLOR CRAYONS and let me tell you something... I ADORE THEM! I stamped my image in Black Stazon and then i scribbled a little of each color that I wanted to use on some scrap paper... I used a water brush to liquefy the color and add it to my image!Quick and easy!!! And for the shading? SIMPLE! Just add more pigment to the brush and go over the image where you want it darker! I hope you enjoyed this card and thanks for popping in!!!
