I have more beautiful "Everything's Rosy" designs for you from Lisa today! This time let's jump right in and check out her cards. But keep reading below for more words from Lisa and remember to leave a comment for a chance to win!
If you loved Lisa's Melt Art leaf from her first set of cards, then this one will knock your socks off! Lisa created a wax butterfly from the largest butterfly on the Flutterby Flock stamp! Isn't it amazing?!
Here are some notes from Lisa on how she did it: "create a Mold 'n Pour Cast from the stamp, pour White Bees Wax in, let it set, rub it with Bronze Perfect Pearls, mist with water to help it set and then brushed with a thin layer of Glossy Accents to make sure it was durable." Then here is another photo so you can see a closeup of the wax butterfly! The woodgrain stamp makes the perfect background. And I love that she added three tiny Pretty Pearls to the center of the butterfly!
Speaking of pearls... check out this flower! I don't know about you, but I tend to want to hoard my pearls but this card makes me want to get them out and use 'em! So pretty!
These are so sparkly in person and the color is fabulous! Lisa inked each of the butterflies in different colors and then stamped. Then used Glitter Ritz Microfine Glitters with a Quickie glue pen to add the glitter!
Here are a few more of Lisa's thoughts in response to our word association questionaire:
- Work space - Piles. Messy. I put everything on my desk away after I have be unable to find three things that I am looking for. I wait as long as I can because once I clean it, my creative energy takes a step backward for a few days. The physical space is two thirds of a single car garage remodelled as a studio. It can function as a classroom for 8 or a creative space for 10. It was modelled after Suze Weinburg's studio (of Melt Art fame), but modernized with entirely Ikea furnishings.
- Perfect day - Two perfect days. Husband, son and 100lb black Labrador Retriever at the lake fishing. Sun up till sun down in my studio creating across from another creative soul and playing off each other's energy.
- First job - Western Wear and Horse Supply Store. The sport of my youth was breeding, raising and showing Quarter Horses.
- Wildest dream - Already living my wildest dreams. Sounds cheezie but it's true. Married to the love of my life, have the single most amazing son in the world, a dog that gives and gives when I need a shoulder to cry on, and a career that allows me to help others find their inner artist.
- Ink - Which one? I recently counted and then stopped after I hit 500 full size pads. They all have their purpose. Single most versatile for a rich and crisp image has to be Ranger Archival in Jet Black and Coffee. If I was on a desert island, these are the two I would take. Pigment ink, it has to be Chocolate Pearlescent Brilliance by Tsukineko.
I have one more set of Lisa's Rosy designs, but stay tuned for the last of Lisa's Twilight designs next week! And remember to leave a comment (one only please, per guest designer article) to enter your name into the drawing for a chance to win!
