Inspired by the FB LIVE chat with Lydia

Hello! Did you catch Lydia at Altenew opening the new Layered Roses Stamping Kit today on FB LIVE?  It was very inspiring:) The kit is on sale for a remarkably LOW price until Nov. 30.
I grabbed my Vintage Roses set and stamped along with her.
I also used Vintage Flowers, Watercolor Wonder and Smile stamp sets.
Crisp Inks: Frosty Pink, Coral Berry and Ruby Red
The entire Sea Shore well as 
My favorite yellows: Buttercream, Mango, Warm Sunshine..with a hint of Cotton Candy:))
For background, I took Frost Pink mini ink and a ruler, simply swiped the pad along the straight edge to create an imperfect brushed stripe.

Thanks for stopping by!

Chalkboard Watercoloring Coloring for Inspired By #34

Hello! Hope your weekend is going splendidly!
There is a new challenge at Inspired By All the Little Things.

I was inspired by the chalkboard, and tiny pops of Red and White in the photo.

  • I started with the HELLO LOVELY stamp set from Concord and 9th..inked the solid images in shades of red Distress inks on watercolor CS, then added some green leaves. 
  • Masked a rectangle with tape for my "chalkboard" and added a wash of black ziggy around the blooms and over teh leaves. 
  • Removed the Frog masking tape
  • Had fun with the splatters:)  Copic Opaque White ...which I found had totally dried up since the last time I used it:(( after finding it was waterbased, I simply spritzed some water into the container and stirred it...regenerating to a paste consistency:)) 
  • When it was dry I stamped LOVELY in White and embossed it with WOW Opaque Bright White EP. 
  • Stamped HELLO in Light Onyx

Hope this inspired you to play along with us at Inspired By:))

Our Guest Artist this week is:
