This paper is so cute...look at that cute snail...I love the colors...

Baby Shower Gift Bags
I had three baby showers in two weeks time. I had the gifts and all the gift bags... So I thought ! Oh no ... No bag or wrap for a boy... DCWV Stack to the rescue ... I used a brown bag and a 12X12 sheet of paper to decorate the bag. I used brown cardstock to create a lace edge.

Couldn't help but wonder what this looked like right side up ...

First...a correction (there is a man talking while I'm doing this !!)
remember ... OK! I felt like an artist when I completed this last one...the colors were great , my stampimg came out the way I wanted...the initial stamp was gathered twigs, I "shadowed" it by stamping it two more times using
crushed olive and scattered straw...like the effect !

After stamping the leaves I wanted to give them more definition so I used a paint brush dabbed on the stain dabber...such a cool trick...I read it on a blog...can't remer whose...sorry ! The color was spiced marmalade... Yummy !

Tim says learn to embrace your imperfections. I attemped to highlight the leaves (middle atc)
with the stickles and did not like it so I restamped them when the stickles dried...I like the texture it gave me ...I got so excited about it...I forgot to invert it before i stamped the title ...now it's upside down. Oh I almost forgot...I tried a new technique I painted with the distress stain on the first ATC.

Fall ATC Cards

Fall Fun with new fall colors; gathered twigs,ripe persimmon and seedless preserves...love these colors .
