2008 Rinda Challenge #2

Continuing with my 4x4 Fat Book pages:

I really REALLY liked how this turned out. I used stamps from two different Close to My Heart acrylic sets. Lately, my favorite paper has been watercolor paper. I used a brush to coat the 4x4 piece with water. Then, I used Heidi Swap cream acrylic paint for the wash. I tend to use what is out on my desk for these challenges….I just got a new 12pk of Twinkling H20’s from Frantic Stamper. What the heck, I’ve always wanted to try painting the color on stamps with Twinks, I used four different colors…IT WAS A MESS! 24 hrs later and my fingers are still stained, but I really liked how this turned out.

2008 Rinda Challenge #1

Faux postage, rose/mauve/brown color theme. I’m doing all of Rinda’s 2008 challenges in 4x4 Fat Book style so I can bind them when we are done. Finally got this piece done

Puzzleart Piece Valentine Theme

I am mighty proud of this piece. I have glitter all over my work table…the scan doesn’t do it justice. The bird and heart are from one of my favorite new Stampin Up sets, Always.

I've been working on 4x4 Fat Book swaps, bookmark swaps & 6x6 Recipe Swaps. I shouldn't post until they get sent out to everyone for the surprise factor.

I'm currently working on some New Years and Valentine's Day cards. Hopefully, I'll have something postable this week.
