Rose and lime green card

I just love this color combination. It is rose and lime green. I used a stencil template to cut out the bracket edge of the card and stamped it with rose colored ink. Then added a piece of  rose and green patterned paper. I added green ribbon going across the bottom and added rick rack on top.
I finished it off by taking a lime green piece of card stock and running it through and embossing folder for texture. I then added the flower with a pearl center.

Map card

I love recycling things into my crafting. This card is used by using a piece of a map that I had laying around. The other part of the card at the top left hand side is a page torn out of a dictionary. I just pieced them together and inked in each corner. Stamped the man on the bike. Then stamped the wording on a hand torn page of the dictionary.
And for the final touched added washi tape with wording and a flower with a button for the center.

Sunshine Canvas

This is a canvas I made using Art Anthology sprays and dimensional paints. These paints are so fun and versatile to work with!

I first used a stencil and spritzed the Art Anthology coloration spray. Then I painted the grass with a wide brush and spread some lighter yellow behind the flower. I painted petals on the canvas and painted the fabric flower to give it more color and dimension.  I adhered the flower to the canvas and added a vintage button to the center. 
The letters are made from grunge board and spritzed with the Art Anthology coloration spray. 
The leaves and stem are made from ribbon.

                                     The final touch is the lady bugs! The lady bugs are buttons.

Moon Canvas

This is a canvas I painted using Art Anthology paints. If you have not used these paints before you are missing out. The colors are so vibrant and easy to work with.  I highly recommend them!
The saying is from Game of Thrones (an HBO series)

Frog under the weather.

This is a stamped frog image that I colored with colored pencils and blended with gamisol. Gamisol is odorless mineral spirits. I love the effect that it has on the colors. 
I then used Stickles on the rain drops and on the flies wings.
