Spring flowers

Spring flowers

Good Morning crafty friends. I am up on the SumMoreFun blog today to share a card I made a spring card full of flowers using Raisin Boat's "Spring is in the air" stamp set. 


I started out cutting the oval shape in this very light green paper.  I then added a darker green behind it and stamped using all the flowers in this adorable set.
I used a punch to stamp around the larger flower.
The oval reminded me of an Easter egg, so I decided to decorate it with flowers using Distress oxide inks.
I also added the simple word Hi.
Now its ready to send out just to say Hi to someone special. 

Keep an eye out withing the next few days as I have a GIVEAWAY, I will be posting.

 A Journal page
Using Raisin Boat's Spring is in the air Stamp set


Im so ready for Spring and the weather that comes with it. Blooming flowers, bon fires and most of all the exploring trips we take.

I started out using gesso on my page and added a few pieces of tissue paper in with it.
I then painted some green using Liquitex paint.
I added some other colors as well, turquoise and black.
I have the pieces I made to add an impressions like a background stamp.
So using black ink, I used them here and there.
I also stamped using the grass stamp on the bottom and one side in green ink, then added a little more paint until I was happy with it.
I then stamped using the flower and circle stamps from the set.
I added "enjoy the journey" using the Kirarina WINK gold pen that SumMoreFun carries in their store.


At the end, I added the stencil using whipped spackle.
I hope I was able to inspire you to make something if you own and join in our challenge.

Enjoy life

Enjoy Life


Good morning crafty friends.  Im up on the SumMoreFun blog today for my Monday post. 

Life has sure become busy.  Seems like we are being pulled in one direction and then the other. 
Do you get the chance to remind yourself to
Just enjoy life?

I think we all need to do this in our lives. 
Just stop and enjoy what is going on around us. 
This is what inspired my small canvas I made for today. 
I just need to remind myself to be still, smell the flowers, enjoy nature, the quiet, the birds chirping. 


I painted my canvas in black, then stamped the large stemmed daisy by Victorine Originals in red paint. 
I added some texture using a stencil.
Almost to look like a path.
Added some distressed papers and stamped this cute bicycle from the Bicycle set w/ Penny Farthing
I also stamped the daisy on different papers and fussy cut them out. 
You can find the product list on my blog at thetigershaven.blogspot.com


My project also goes with the current Mood Board Challenge we have going on. 

Heres a look at the Mood Board



I hope you will join us for your chance to win!!! Link up your projects today, you only have a few days left. 

I hope you find time to enjoy life. 
Stop and smell the flowers.

Thanks for stopping by
Hugs
Amy

Keep Moving-SumMoreFun Mood Board Challenge 22

Keep Moving
SumMoreFun
Mood Board 
Challenge #22

A New Challenge is up on the SumMoreFun blog.

Here is our Mood Board

You can use anything from the board that inspires you. Something from a photo or even the colors.
I was inspired by the bike and the red daisy.
I was also inspire to challenge myself to use red. Something I don't normally do.

Here is my inspiration piece for you.


Starting out with a blank canvas, I attached tissue paper to the canvas using modge podge.  After letting it sit over night to dry, I added texture using whipped spackle.
I then used paint until I was happy with the outcome.
Making sure my colors were showing thru.
I chose a few stamps from Victorine Originals bicycle set w\ Penny Farthing.. Which is such a neat stamp set.
Stamped them on brown paper then distressed.
I also used the large stemmed daisy from Victorine Originals.
Stamping it out about 3 times then fussy cutting, I attached each one on top of the other to form a 3D daisy flower.
I knew I wanted the daisy to pop so I made sure when I was painting to have a dark area I could place it.
I arranged everything on my canvas until it fit.  Adding homemade flowers and a saying.
Its important to me to inspire thru my art and projects and having a positive saying adds that much more.
I hope I was able to inspire you today and maybe enough to have you join in our challenge.
You do have a chance to win when you link up. And the prize is doubled when you use Victorine Originals or Raisin Boat stamps.
Thats pretty awesome!!!
So head on over and join in the fun!!!
