So here we go, another new stamp that has been sitting in my stash.
Did you know I have a thing for roosters, lol.
I colored him with watercolor pencils,
but you can use any preferred method.
Please bring your basic class kit,
brown ink pad and blender
(I used gathered twigs)
watercolor pencils
(or preferred medium)
water brush or paintbrush
water in spray bottle

That's it, enjoy your day and see you tomorrow.

10/21/2014 class @CP2

Last week I spent my days preparing for classes or teaching.
So I came home Saturday itching to get inky.
I knew I wanted to use the Stampendous stamps and dies
I bought at Nancy's a while ago.
I love the pen pattern series, looks like zentangle,
which I have to be very zen to do zentangle
 otherwise it just stress me out.

So I sat at my desk pondering if I should be a purist
 and create in black and white or do I add color.
Well the autumn colors have been calling my name,
so I went with color.
The original card I stamped in black, 
on the second one I switched to sepia, 
gives it a little softer feel.
So sepia it is!

Please bring your basic class kit
gold paint pen

if you own
wild honey ink pad
fired brick ink pad
rusty hinge ink pad
plus ink blenders for the 3 colors.
If you have other autumn color distress ink and
 would like to use those, feel free to bring them to class.

That should do it, see you on Tuesday.

Art Impressions and Elizabeth Craft Designs

This weekend is my Aunt's 95th birthday 
so I wanted to make a special card.
She has a great sense of humor and
 I knew she would love any of the Art Impression stamps.
Here's what I did.
I used leftover packaging to have the sentiment floating above her head.
Unfortunately I forgot to scan the front.
I used a word bubble and stamped the sentiment,
Okay, light the candles!
and used printed paper with balloons on it.

Thought I would share.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Here we go, love these flip it cards!
This one has a extended back 
so you don't see the sentiment until you open the card.
Used lots of scrapbook paper on this one,
how easy is that!

Please bring your basic class kit
including a black edger

Enjoy your day,
see you Tuesday,
