Hi, this is a card I did for my beloved Aunt Titi Tata, she loves orchids so I did my best to make and orchid for her. Tried to do the bright orchid colors she likes with my style of dark vintage. So the orchid on top I made and painted with some inks for the Micheal's $1 aisle, super nice colors with little cost.....awesome!!! Again the paper is from the collection of DCWV "The Primarose" Stack, excellent papers so in love. If you have Graphic 45 papers, especially The Secret Garden, oh, the go perfect together. The bird on top is from the collection La Mariposa Stack and the little tags are form The Secret Gardens die cuts.....love it. The flowers on the bottom are from Primas The Botanical collection called I think Carribean Bloom (sorry if it's wrong, I through away the package). The flowers come white and I just ink them or mist them with my own homemade glitter mists, I'll put the link below for everyone, it's super easy to do.

Thanks again for stoppin by and lookin.......Selah!!!

Hi, this card was so fun to do. It's a card for my Mom for Mothers Day. I'm into teal's and brown's now, I think a little obvious, lol. Tried to keep it bright, did some fussy cutting with the butterflies and used some die cuts that came in the paper collection from DCWV "The Primrose" Stack. Awesome papers so rich and colorful without being to bright. Distressed the edges with Tim Holtz's Vintage Photo distress ink. Then distress the edges, the teal blue-green ink is from Micheal's $1 section, lots of great stuff there. Flowers made myself and gesso some of the edges of the embellies. Took some organza ribbon stained it with the Vintage Photo and then just heated it to give it a more distressed burnt look.

Thanks for stoppin by and lookin......Selah!!!

YSA'S CARD


Hi, thanks for stopping by and looking. This is a card I did for a good friend and ex co-worker. Can you tell that her favorite color is aqua, well I tried, mine is teal so I fused it, lol. 

Here I worked with DCWV paper collection "The Primrose", wonderful graphic's. Also used some Graphic 45's "Secret Garden", oh believe me the two merge beautifully together, strongly recommend it. The flowers were made by me using the Retro flower punch out and EK Success's flower punch out for the peonies, well that's what there suppose to be but look more like cabbage roses, anyway....lol. Did some distressing using Tim Holtz's Vintage Photo distress ink pads and some blue string I found at Target on clearance for .37 cents, four styles of string, awesome find. 

I hope your like it. Thanks again for stopping by and looking.....Selah!!!

Pretty simple, if you have any question just send me a message or leave a comment, thanks for looking......Selah!!!

Happy (PIT June 09 sketch)


This is the sketch from Pages In Time for the June 09, go check out the site they have such wonderful sketches.


Hi, this is may take on the sketch, this was sooooo much fun to do. The colours we a challenge for me because there not in my safe zone, but little girls should get there bright colours now and then, lol. 

Tried a new technique I saw and loved it which is dry painting acrylic on the paper and writting on it, awesome.

So simple to do just don't add water to the brush to and just plain acylic paint, thats what will give you that sort of broken up part in the paint to make it look old. Love it!!!

Well I hope you liked it, if you have any question just leave me a comment. Don't forget to visit Pages In Time, you'll love it. Thanks for stopping by!!!!
