This Is Huge

i made this card for my daughter, who i’m so proud of; she’s worked hard to reach a goal that will enable her to continue her studies because she was way above the cut off mark.

i painted this happy Art Impressions stamp, appropriately called this is huge with twinkling H2Os and also painted the background after i stamped the hero arts stamp and heat embossed it. i used one of the sentiments on the front and the other on the inside – you did it!

Jingle All The Way – Mixing It Up And Day 1 Tag

i’m off to a slow start, but i managed to create a tag for both Ellen Hutson’s December Mix It Up Challenge and Day 1 of the 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist.

since both Laurel Beard and Sandy Allnock used coloured images on their festive tags, i was inspired to do the same.

i painted everything with winsor & newton watercolour paints, using a light wash of teal in the background and it’s also used to create an ombre sentiment from the Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps, All Inside by Julie Ebersole. i love Maude, an older Art Impressions cling stamp; i added pink stickles to her curlers and glossy accents to the smiley face.
