STAMPlorations - Guest Designer for the July CAS Challenge!



I was so surprised when I found out 
that I was to be a guest for the July
CAS Challenge at
STAMPlorations!!  

This Month's CAS Challenge is
Anything GOES optional color
ORANGE!

JOIN in the Challenge (HERE)



 So this AMAZING sentiment 
is TRULY fitting!  Shery really has a great sense and style for the eye catching images.  perfect for CAS or Mixed Media, her shoppe really has all that you need for any style.





Supplies:
STAMPlorations  (SOON TO BE CLEAR) Rose image
and the STAMPlorations  (SOON TO BE CLEAR) Surprise sentiment
Copics: Rose YR18 Sanguine, FYR1 Flourescent Orange, 
YR15 Pumpkin Yellow, YR04 Chrome Orange
Outline :YR 11 Pale Yellow
Second Outline: B0000 Pale Celestine
Stem: YG07 Acid Green

The digital images were not altered, I set up a 4.2x5  section on a blank page and duplicated the image 3 times.  I actually started with the darker colors first.  Pumpkin Yellow and then Sanguine.  I covered the entire image in Chrome and flouresent oranges.  A soft outline of the orange and a pale yellow followed by a ultra light blue, and an underline of the Blue Celestine beneath the sentiment freshens the entire design.  A wee spot of green adds a little added interest.


STAMPlorations will soon have another
 release and keep your
 eyes peeled for these images!




I was given the SUPREME joy of using 
the new images in Digi 
that will be available in a few months to EVERYONE!

I am not sure the exact size of 
the final clears, but I know
for sure in any size, 
this Rose image and the sentiment
are FAB FAB FAB!!!!

And have you seen some of her other designers there as well? 
 Shirley B and Deepti and
 Becca Cruger !!  Wowza!
Lotttsa Talent!

MUSE Christmas Visions

Hello Muse Christmas Visions FANS!

Today I bring 
a few inspirations to 
take away from my card...if you
choose - because you can be 
inspired in many ways!

I made my own wreath with individual stamps,
used non traditional colors, 
mixed media paper for watercolor
and sentiment stripped a stamp
to make it my own.

So how is the Christmas Card 
making so far?  

 I'd love if you let me
know how you were inspired!!!!


Supplies:

More MUSING.....


I have been watercoloring...
Lately it is so refreshing 
to dab water and splish splash 
some color around... 
Messy and loose and free..

The lovely MUSE inking 
got me a thinking to use it for inspiraiton
for more watercoloring....



You might be wondering how I watercolor....


Sentiment: The Ton
Images: Stampin' Up!
Spectrum Aqua  Makers
Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins

I have a plastic container that I write on 
with the Spectrum Aqua markers..
Then I dabble some clear water in a little puddle.  
lightly water down the mixed media 
or water color paper and then add in the other colors..
I love it when it bleeds into other colors like 
a flowing river leaving ripples behind. 

I only have the Primary Aqua Markers...I need to get more! 
 I just LOVE the bold Primary though....
if you have them or try them, 
let me know what you think about the vibrant color!






Now it is your turn to get crafty!!!............
