The new challenge over at PaperArtsy is Blue and Ochre. I took my inspiration from Chris Dark - Under the Sea.
I used Fresco Paints and JOFY stamps for my card.

PaperArtsy Challenge : Masks

The challenge over at PaperArtsy is Masks.
My card is inspired by Lin Brown, and uses both masks and stencils.
Background is Fresco Paints. The stamps are JOFY33
I have masked the first flower stamp to stamp the second one "behind" (well really over it), and used JOFY11 Stencil and Claire Lloyd 23 Stencil (with more Fresco Paint) in the background.

PaperArtsy Challenge : Pink and Orange

The new challenges for PaperArtsy have started. This challenge is Pink and Orange. Not two colours I would normally put together!
My inspiration came from Jo Firth Young on the release of her new stamps here.

For the background I used Fresco Paints (Vanilla and Tinned Peas) and the JOFY stencil 008
Then I stamped with JOFY25, 33, 37, 38 and ELB22
I then coloured them in with Fresco Paint (Very Berry, Sherbet, Rose, Butternut, Tango)

This week's PaperArtsy challenge is Mail Art, see here.
This week I combined the bleach technique from last week, with a faux postcard for mail art.
I used stamps from ID04, and Fresco Paints (Snowflake, China, London Bus, Yellow Submarine and Granny Smith).

PaprtArtsy Challenge : Bleach (3)

Another Paprtartsy challenge card. This time I loved the piece by Kaz Hall here.
I used HP1009 for the flower, and EEG15 for the background stamps and the sentiment.
Like Kaz i used bleach to make the background a lighter colour, and to highlight the petals.
Very effective!
The paint splatters (and stanping) are all Fresco Paints, in Snowflake, China, Haystack, Professor Plum and Eggplant.
