The Next Holiday is on It's Way...

...and it is one of my FAVES!!! I love Valentines Day! I love the colors, I love the candy hearts and I LOVE the Art Impressions Valentots! I stamped this little cutie with black Stazon onto watercolor paper. Then, I used STAEDTLER watercolor crayons to color this little darling in! I scribbled some of the crayon onto scrap paper and then I used a water brush to liquefy the color and painted her in! I added some glitter to the pom pom on her cap and here is my creation!
Where did the darling roses come from you ask... well... I MADE THEM!!! here is how! I used a push mold from STAEDTLER and some FIMO effects clay. I pushed the clay into the mold,removed it and here is my flower! The best part? I can make as many as I any color I want and I can make a whole cookie sheet of them in like 20 minutes! If you done want to by alot of clay... you can always so what i did and that is to add some extra color for dimension by scraping some STAEDTLER karat soft pastel chalks into a little pike and brushing the color onto the clay before baking it! It is a great effect and adds dimension and character super fast! I adhered them to my card with glue dots! easy peasy!Thanks so much for popping in and be sure to keep watching this page for more fun creations!
