Life in Technicolor

There’s a new challenge starting today on the Oddball Art Stamps Blog! The theme is: Life in Technicolor. I made a few design team inspiration pages in my art journal.

All of the digistamps used in my art journal pages can be found in the Oddball Art Stamps Etsy shop. Use the code DTSTEPHANIE10 to save 10%

Each page was painted entirely with Brea Reese Glitter and Watercolor Inks. I believe I used all 14 colors in this project! They are so much fun to paint with and mixing the inks gives you an endless amount of colors!

We have monthly challenge on the Oddball Art Stamps Blog and Facebook group. Come join in the fun and enter to win!!

So Much Sparkle!

There’s so much sparkle on Vera Lane Studio Facebook group this month! The theme is add a lil sparkle! We have an ATC swap each and every month Teresa Morgan is the host for August!

The ATC above I made using the Oh, La, La digistamp set. The digistamp set is avail by request in the Vera Lane Studio Etsy shop. Her dress definitely cried out for some sparkle! I used the Red and Neutral Grey glitter inks from Brea Reese.

The entire card was colored with Brea Reese Watercolor & glitter inks and fine liner markers.

The ATC below was made with Pumpkin Boy and Cat digistamp set. Brea Reese glitter ink and fine liner pens were used to paint the adorable lil trick or treater. I can’t wait for fall and Halloween. So you’ll probably see lots more as we get closer 🙂

Come join in the monthly Vera Lane Studio swaps and fun!

Until next time…
