Enjoying challenges

Michelle Ward of Green Pepper Press Street Team hosts monthly challenges and provides wonderful information on the topic. This month's topic is LOVE Letter as in oooxxx, why of course!

The task is to create a journal page but since I am a card maker I make a full background sheet following the challenge details and then make it into cards. The backgrounds were created with Ranger dabber acrylic paints over a textured gesso base.

I am also playing in my friend Anne's February challenge is posted on her blog, Gaal Creative. I loved playing with wet acrylics with a spring & butterfly theme. Oh so fun to play with wet paint and stamps...and finally adding some embellishment with stickles and dimensional paint. I will have just enough time before Anne's deadline to get these in the mailbox with few surprise notes to family and friends. Thanks Anne and Michelle for great theme ideas!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I didn't get to send out as many valentines as I wished so please let me share this one with you!

My computer caught a virus and was in the shop for a couple weeks and so I haven't been able to post for a while. Here are a couple projects I worked on during that time.

I altered this little tin with an alcohol ink background, heat embossed stamped ferns and added dried flowers.

And a little birthday wish...
