More cards using the Art stamps by Darkroom Door~

Hi guys!! 
A little late but still Tuesday :).
I have another set of Brush & Art cards to share using the Artist Palette
 and Artist Brushes sets by Darkroom Door.
These cards are easy to create, just need ink sprays and stamps.

To create this card spray colored ink spray on the card front and heat dry.  Stamp the image on the color and let dry.  Speckle with other ink spray colors.  Add sentiment.

This one is created the same way just used different colors of ink spray.
  I used the same colors to create a set of cards.  Quick and easy technique used to make
 a cute set of cards that go together!

Supplies used:
Ink: Ranger Archival: Jet Black
Ink sprays: Dylusions: Squeezed Orange, Lemon Zest and Vibrant Turquoise

Pumpkin Pallet Decor with Clear Scraps~

Hi, Connie here with a cute and fun project using the Pumpkin Pallet shape by Clear Scraps.  This is one of two pallet pumpkins Clear Scraps makes.  The pumpkins together would make great fall decor for your home.  One pumpkin is pretty fun too!  Let me show you~

1. Sand the pallet shape lightly before adding color.  Wipe down with soft rag.
2. Water color down so it looks like a stain mix.  Apply to pallet and let dry.

      3.  Paint stem (same technique) and let dry.
      4.  Add vine (free hand or with a stencil)

       5.  Stencil word in center of pallet. I use foam round brushes and dab off paint. Less is more
 and in this case.  If you use to much paint, it will bleed under the stencil and make a mess.
       6.  Sand pallet lightly for a distressed look. Wipe with soft cloth.
       7.  Speckle with black watered down paint.
       8.  Seal project with acrylic mat or gloss sealer.
