8/27/2015 Thursday's at Scraps Galore

It's party day, come celebrate David, Jenna & Judy's birthday!

I was reading one of Jennifer McGuire blog post and 
she did a series of cards that she called Faux Textured Metal.
They sure do shimmer but not sure that they look like textured metal.
They are really pretty and the process sure is addictive!

Here's 5 that I whipped out in no time and I have a 6th in the progress.

Please bring your basic class kit
non stick craft sheet
ball point glue pen
If you have/want
distress inks that will blend
ink blending tool for those colors
perfect pearls or pearl ex
brush for perfect pearls
favorite embossing folder
Of course I will bring inks, blenders, perfect pearls, brushes
and an assortment of embossing folders
for all of you to share.

Enjoy your week see you on Thursday!

8/20/2015 Thursday's at Scraps Galore

Today's card is one layer with lots of stamping, 
masking, distress inks and of course 
my beloved watercolor pencils!

When I saw this set at the Art Impressions booth 
during the stamp convention I knew I had to have it.
I grew up surrounded by water, no palm trees but love the beach.

Please bring your basic class kit
pencil w/eraser
I used the following distress inks & blending tool
antique linen
salty ocean
tumbled glass
I also used the same color markers to touch up missed areas
Your choice of coloring medium
spray bottle w/water
paint brush or water brush

That should do it!

Don't forget we will celebrate August Birthdays on the 27th
Jenna, David & Judy

Enjoy your week!

8/13/2015 Thursday's at Scraps Galore

I was recently looking at all the die cuts on the wall at Scraps Galore 
and found this Memory Box die called Steampunk Corner and just had to have it!
I knew I wanted to cut it out of foil and distress it,
but which method should I use?
So I decided to make the background embossed foil
 and use my two favorite techniques.

Here are the two samples I made.

So for the background we will use a black paint dauber and a baby wipe.
The corner we will use Alcohol Inks.
Kinda fun huh?

Please bring your basic class kit
black paint dauber
glue stick
zig 2 way glue
score tape or redline tape
black edger
That should do it!

Remember we are celebrating August birthdays on the 27th,
David, Jenna & Judy

Enjoy your week,
