9/30/2014 class @CP2

Good morning all,
today we will be using a newly acquired stamp from Art Impressions.
I just thought this dog flying by was too cute.
Kept it fairly simple and masculine,
We will be doing a bit of masking.
I needed a card for my son's roommate.

Please bring your basic class kit
black edger
watercolor pencils or preferred medium
paint brush or water brush

I used broken china distress ink and a blending tool
for the sky/background.

Just a reminder we will be celebrating
 Bette's birthday on October 7th.
It is Nancy Bruce's birthday but she hasn't been in class
 due to recent surgery, her mailing address
 is on the class list if you would like to send her a card.

Thanks, have a wonderful week and see y'all on Tuesday!

9/23/2014 class @CP2

Today I spoke about this card we will be doing.
I found it online and the artist teaches children.
They did it on canvas with acrylic paints.
We are using paper and distress inks.
Each card uses two colors that are blended in the middle to create a third color.

Please bring your basic class kit
paper trimmer
black ink pad, dye based works best
(I used black soot distress ink pad)
make sure it's well inked
expired credit card or similar from junk mail
black edger
small paint brush for touch ups

I used the following distress ink pads with a foam blender
mustard seed & peacock feathers
dusty concord & broken china.
Bring you favorite colors if you wish but make sure you bring the blenders too.

I would like to thank everyone for the wonderful cards and the well wishes,
I do appreciate it.
Have a great week, see you Tuesday.

Birthday celebration day

I have been on a feather kick lately.
Tons of samples on the Internet, tons of sample on pintrest.
I have stamps.
I have dies.
I have stamps with matching dies.
Time to start using them and stop collecting.
This first card (more to come in the future)
is a Hero Arts stamp & die.
There are 4 feathers in the set but only two dies.
This cards uses the two matching stamps & dies.
It is much more vibrant in real life for some reason the scan muted the colors.
We will be coloring the feathers with the wrinkle free distressing.

Please bring your basic class kit
non stick craft mat
spray water bottle
black edger
I used broken china & shabby shutters distress ink,
feel free to bring yours if you would like.

That should do it, enjoy your weekend,
see you Tuesday!
