Happy Little Stampers April 2017 Mixed Media Challenge – Sprays

Hi! I’m very happy to be here with you today with a card for Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media Challenge.

Our  challenge:

Here’s my card. Thinking Spring!
img_5891_edited-1

I started this card by creating a smooshed blue and yellow Brusho Crystal Color background panel.  Next, I used a butterfly die cut as a stencil and sponged on blue ink through the negative spaces. I stamped with the large script background stamp from Thinking of You stamp and the Happy Birthday in blue ink. I traced the large sentiment with white gel pen. img_5887_edited-1I started the panel with the Brushos last summer at the first HLS retreat in Swindon. I finished the card back at my house in Germany. I sprayed the panel with homemade blue alcohol ink and added blue gel pen around the stenciled butterfly.img_5888_edited-1

Happy Little Stampers March 2017 Mixed Media Challenge – Books

Hi! I’m very happy to be here with you today with a card for Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media Challenge.

Our  challenge:

Here’s my card.
I started this card by creating a smooshed Brushos background panel.  Then I stamped with some real leaves, inked up with green ink. I made the basic panel with the Brushos and the leaves first summer at the first HLS retreat in Swindon. I finished the card back at my house in Germany. At my house, I stamped with the large script stamp in gold metallic ink. img_4067_edited-1I traced the leaves with white gel pen and added the stamped book spine and a piece of self-made Scripture designer paper.
