WORDS of Wisdom about coffee

Another card for the Coffee Lover's Bloghop.
Spring Hop 2017 

The Mixed Media Challenge (MIX-Ability) on SCS (splitcoast stampers)  this last week was to use WORDS of Wisdom.

I think the words from this STAMPlorations set are pretty good words of wisdom. I used

I paper pieced the cup and added cheesecloth and two types of burlap (plain and polka dotted) and I added some quilled roses.  Behind the cup is a watercolored background.

Blooming Jazz plaque STENCIL SUNDAY

Another Stencil Sunday.
I used this ARTplorations Stencil:
preview-web-stencil-a-bloom-and-three-buds 

This last year, my husband I have done a lot of remodeling. Well, he has and I watched if that counts. We had some left over trim for the baseboards. I kept the scraps thinking I would someday turn them into little decorative plaques. Well, today was that someday. This last year was my son's last year of high school. I took the jazz sheet music that he auditioned for jazz band and watercolored it with markers. I then used the stencil to add white pant over the background. That gave it a more opaque look than if I had just watercolored the flowers. I then went over the white paint with watercolors. I outlined the flowers. I glued the sheet music to the trim. 

 I added cheesecloth, inka gold metallic rub, glitter and sequins to finish it off. 

There is still time to join us for the STAMPlorations mixed media challenge. Remember you have to use a stencil and make anything but a card to join the CHALLENGE

Mustard Seed Faith Challenges

 
Starting today some of my Sisters in Christ friends plus some new Sisters in Christ are being part of a new challenge blog. our hope is to encourage each other in our creative endeavors, to encourage each other in or walks of Faith and to proclaim and "make famous" Jesus, our Savior. Come check out the new challenge blog Mustard Seed Faith Challenges 
The challenge this week was to make a card using  mustard color  I decided that I would go fancy mustard. Think grey poupon. That would be my butterflies as well as one of the layers and the small rectangle. Thankful to share the love of Christ with my sisters and you. Blessings.
