Repeat Impressions Project of the week-Faux Airbrushing background technique

Hi everyone, I can't believe that i almost forgot to post my Project of the week for Repeat Impressions Stamps. Today, i would like to share a simple background technique with all of you that i call a Faux Airbrushed Background. 

Supplies needed to create
Repeat Impressions Stamp- 1711-K, Lupine
Acrylic Block
White Copic friendly cardstock
Black ink pad- This is a ranger archival black
Copic Markers
Washi tape
Rectangle Spellbinder die
Distress inks in Broken china and Forest Moss
Die Cut Machine- Mine is a Big Shot
Scrap paper
Stippling Brushes

1. Take your black ink pad, Stamp, Block, and White cardstock.  Stamp the image onto the cardstock.


2.  Color the image as desired. I used copic markers to color mine.


3.  Take your Spellbinders Rectangle die and using your die cut machine, cut it out. After running it through the Big shot, leave the cardstock in the die and flip to the backside. Put a piece of tape on the back of the die and image to keep it from moving. Flip over to the front again. Photo 6,7,8,9
4.  Grab your stippling brushes and distress ink. Take your Broken China Distress ink and run the brush through the ink just getting a small amount on the tips of the Bristles. Pounce the excess ink off onto a scrap piece of paper and then run the bristles back and forth over the image to cover. Continue until you get the desired color. Repeat the process using your forest Moss Distress ink.









5. Remove the tape from the die and look at the beautiful frame that you have left and the colors of the background. Now your ready to create your card.

Bible Art using Isaiah 35:2- Hope for Restoration

Hi Everyone, I'm leaving on vacation tomorrow. Happy Dance! I will still be posting my Design Team cards etc... but probably will not be posting the misc.... photo's of projects.  You never know though, if i have a down minute i might. lol

Today,i would like to share a Bible art page using the Verse from Isaiah 35:2

"Yes, there will be an abundance of flowers and singing and Joy!
The Deserts will become as green as the Mountains of Lebanon, as lovely as Mount Carmel or the Plain of Sharon.
There the Lord will display his Glory, the splendor of our God."


Part of this image was already in my Bible "Inspire" including the flower, butterfly and sentiment. Then i drew the other flowers on your right.  They were all colored with Ink tense 
pencils. If anyone is wondering about ink tense pencils, I love them! They are so vibrant and bright. I am a heavy colorer.  I do not care for a lightly colored image, but these are awesome once activated with water.  The only downfall is that you can't move the color once it's dry.

Practice, Practice, Practice that's what i'm doing. Water colored card

I really want to learn to watercolor! I've been trying new things, watching youtube videos and taking all of the suggestions that i can get about water coloring. The best part is that i've been drawing my own subjects to watercolor. Practicing that also. 

I thought that i would share a water colored card with all of you today that i drew using this reference photo-Found at Sheepski Designs-Wild Roses (you can purchase your own digital copy there), water color painted and created a card of wild roses.


Sentiment is from a Illustrated Faith stamp set
Papers are from K and Company

More Water coloring practice!

As you know i've been continuing to draw and watercolor. My family is getting ready to leave on vacation this week. We are going to Utah and then Montana.  I really am ready to just get away awhile.

I always use a reference photo when i draw if anyone is interested, you can find it HERE.  I'm not good enough yet to draw it on my own. lol. I used Gamsai tambi watercolors to color in the Giraffe. The sentiment is from a recollections stamp set and i stamped and then cut the words out of.

More bible art! Using Psalm 71:20

I saw a kitty like this somewhere on the net and just had to draw it for this Bible art page. I felt that this verse was appropriate for this kitty. I colored the drawing with prisma colored pencils and wrote out the verse. 

Psalm 71:20
" You have allowed me to suffer much hardship.
but you will restore me to Me again
and lift me up from the depths of the Earth."

How many days do we feel this way? For me, many and what a great promise that we will be lifted up again.
