So, a few months ago I went to OnStage for Stampin Up!  While we were there, they introduced a new medium that they would be carrying.  While new to them, it is not new to the rest of the world, in fact, it has been around for quite some time.  This medium is, Brusho.  It is pretty cool, you get these little jars that are filled with crystal powder pigment paint.
So SU is offering 5 different colors, (Brilliant Red, Yellow, Moss, Prussian Blue and Gamboge) I got them and decided to play around with them...here are three cards I came up with today.
This first card uses a stamp set from Stampin Up!  It is the peacock set that you can earn for free by spending 50 dollars. (saleabration)

My second card, I use an image from Kraftin Kimmie.  She is a cute little mermaid from the Sea Jewels set.  You can find her here.

This is my third one, she is also from Kraftin Kimmie, the Sea Jewels set too.

So, to make the background, I spritzed some water on watercolor paper, then sprinkled the Brusho crystal powders on.  In some areas I sprinkled more and spritzed more.  Then you let it dry!  So easy to make, and so fun to look at!  

Hope you like!

Kraftin Kimmie Mermaid Ariana

Hi.  I had two minutes to myself...so thought that I would make a card using a mermaid stamp from Kraftin Kimmie. I believe that this stamp is called, Ariana.  Unfortunately at the moment, she is a discontinued stamp....maybe they might bring her back to Krafty Vault sometime.
To make her I used Copic paper and Spectrum Noir markers.  Then for some little touches, I used Wink of Stella on her hair and tail.
Then I popped her up on this background.  I used the The Ocean Background from Kraftin Kimmie.  You can find the background here.
Hope you like her!

Sneak Peek Revealed!

I had so much fun making these cards.  When I first got the stamp, I have to admit, I was a little disappointed.  I was really, really hoping for a witch.  But, then I stamped with her.  Oh, how I love her!!  So on to my cards!
This is my first one I did.  I used the orange tissue paper that the Halloween Kit from Kraftin Kimmie wrapped everything in.  The sayings, papers and twine were also in the kit. I wanted to use original Halloween colors on her.  I colored her with Spectrum Noir markers....around my 5th time using them.
Here was my second go of her.
 This little black bag she is on top of came in the kit holding the twine and sequins.
She's cute huh!
My third one... reversal of colors, and white skin....
 Those orange flat marble dots came in the kit also.  These guys are also colored with Spectrum Noir markers.  I used my new Stampin UP! Punch to do the saying with.

And, my final card, well, she begged doing in Pink....

Yes Pink.  These papers were from my stash, but the dots were in the kit as well as the green doily.  Hope that you enjoyed what I did with her, as I know I did!!
You can pick her up at the KKS shop.  Jump on over!

First Day of School, Fair and Painted Harvest Stampin Up!

Hello!  So, some things to share, first off, my youngest is a big senior this year.  He has had a few rough years and so this year, when he got up on his own, showered, made breakfast and came and got me for pictures, I was really surprised, completely happy though!!  So here he is...
 This is his truck, that is named Tank.  He just got glasses and is happy about it.  Something about being able to finally see the board... :)

Then, we went to the fair this Labor Day.  I have a thing for fairs.  I love them, they are much better than Christmas ever thought of being.  My favorite thing is the pigs.  (then the goats and the pumpkins, and the canning, and art and....)  So here is a few piggies for you!
 Pig snoopies are the best.  I rubbed at least 12 of them!!!
 Baby piglets!!  They were not there the whole fair, so I was luck to see them!
 Nice tusks on this one!
 Then I got a new stamp set from Stampin Up!  It is Painted Harvest.  I love sunflowers and so, well...
These color combos were pretty cool, Peakaboo peach and cherry cobbler, crushed curry and cherry cobbler, calypso coral and cherry cobbler and then crushed curry and calypso coral.
 I used their little pizza box, and used Tim Holtz Distressed Oxide inks and sponged it and then clear embossed on it.  This sunflower was stamped in Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze.  Leaves are Wasabi.

 Inside I did the same and made 6 little cards with envelopes.
But I really liked this card... I found it on Pintrest here.... I changed the colors around and did a little of my own thing and I think it turned out pretty good.
I used Calypso Coral and then Cherry Cobbler, then I stamped a second time over it with the Calypso.  I used Old Olive and Lemon Lime twist for the leaves and Soft Suede for the saying and centers.

Hope you like!
