Wildly Successful.

The newest Cupcake Inspirations challenge uses a flag banner which I always love the look of, but hate creating. I can not for the life of me get those banners to work out for me. The banner that I have on this card actually comes prestringed...all you have to do is punch it out of a master sheet. I can't even get that right sometimes. I think we're not meant to be friends ;-)

For those of you that know me personally...you know you'll never receive this card from me.  I'm way to OCD to forget birthdays...but it could happen. The background was actually created using my "trash" paper to clean off areas of stencils after using Color Bursts. I actually almost signed the sheet of paper and framed it!

Orchard Watercolor

Welcome to September's Artist Team Blog Hop brought to you by Club Scrap. This month we've been challenged to incorporate watercolor techniques with our projects. I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to dust off those Faber-Castell Gelatos.  If you just happened on the blog hop today because you're a regular reader of my blog, and you'd like to view the entire hop, you can start back at Club Scrap. If you're already hopping and linked to me from Tina's Blog, you're in the right spot. Gelatos are acid-free pigment ink sticks that can be used with or without water.  I love the bright colors and creamy texture of the Gelatos.  The fact they look like lipstick tubes is kinda cute too. 1. Directly color the stamp with your gelatos. I usually start with the lightest color first and work to the darkest. 2. Mist water directly on to the stamp. 3. Stamp image onto paper.  I used all sorts of papers: cardstock, watercolor and mixed media papers. I d…
