This first one is from Cornish Heritage Farms (CHF), and I used some new embossing powder that works with regular dye base inks as long as it is really wet. It gives such a cool look. I also used some shimmer water colors from Yasutomo, but I don't think you can see how really great this is. There is blue in the water, and yellow light coming from the lighthouse, and it is all shimmery, but you can't see that :(
This next one is a cliff scene using stamps from (CHF). I was actually going to use this on a card, but I like it so well I'm going to frame it and hang it in my room. It is stamped in dye Stampin' Up (SU) ink and using a water color water brush and the ink that is in the lids to paint the pic.
This next one is a Thomas Kinkade Stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms. I used SU Black ink for the image, and copic pens and chalk for coloring. I used the Yasutomo Shimmer watercolors in white for the mist that is in the pic. It is not easy to see the shimmer watercolor :(. It is very pretty though. Another one to add to my wall.
This one just didn't scan worth a crap, but this is done in Copic Sketch Markers, and it is very mellow. The sky is done in SU buckaroo blue. I used a Colorsnap Stylus to apply the color using a paper towel to mask and make nice white clouds. I learned this technique from Sandra Hulsart's video, which you can find her list that is on my watched list.

I will be home all next week, so I plan to work on my art as much as possible. I ordered some new things that should be there when I get home, and I can hardly wait to get started.
Enough for now, as there are no photos, or projects at this time.

This is the ATC done on Glossy Paper. I used Stazon black for the images, and Stampin' Up blue multi-pad for the blue, and Artichoke for te green. I used a gel pen white for the highlights.
I really like how this one came together. I used my Marvy Markers to do the details, and a blender and Stampin' Up inks for the water and sky. I used Sandy Hulsart's method for making clouds for the first time, and found it to be a wonderful technique which was easy for a beginner.

These are some ATCs that I did for an exchange. The one is Friendly Plastic that I found from a stash I had that is years old, but it is great to stamp into. I have seen it making a comeback here lately. The others are just stamps and other embellishments.
These are some Serendipity Squares that I made for an exchange; and, of course, I had to keep some for myself.
That is it for now.
I hope to see you again.
