Air Blown Flower


For the Mixed Media challenge and the Free For All to use red and yellow.
Used Adirondack alcohol inks on glossy photo paper (Lettuce, Honeycomb, Poppyfields, Watermelon, Terra Cotta, Espresso) and "hello" die cut sentiment. Dropped inks onto paper and blew out to edges with a straw. Fun and easy. I swiped some more ink with a cotton pad to even things out a bit. Added some Sharpie black and brown dots to flower center.

           Another card for the Poppies for Memorial Day challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters.

In Monet's Garden


   Today's challenge at Splitcoaststampers was to incorporate a photo into your project.
I took this picture this past Friday at Monet's Gardens in Giverny, Normandie. I was so overwhelmed with the beauty of this place, the inspiration for so many of Claude Monet's paintings. Absolutely the trip of a lifetime and one I will never forget. The gardens in May were incredibly beautiful and so fragrant.
The picture blurred a little bit when I printed it out bit that was okay, the colors were so much like this in real life. Added a simple sentiment and a frame (Bayou border) by Lawn Fawn.

Memorial Day Remembrance


This is for Memorial Day weekend and the perfect time to honor the memory of all those who have served and to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

This Pop Pop Poppy stamp is by Penny Black and I used Stampin' Up! markers of Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Garden Green for leaves, Poppy Parade, Real Red for flowers. Went over flowers with Arteza watercolor brush pens, I love these things! Highlighted around image with pale blue Copic and then ran through Big Shot with SU Wildflowers folder. Sprayed entire front with glimmer mist. Sentiment is popped up on dimensional tape and is by October Afternoon. Concord Crush, Poppy Parade, and Whisper White card stocks.
