Fresco Finish Chalk Paints

Finally got ALL the colors uploaded to the website. These are awesome paints from PaperArtsy in the UK.
Their tutorial videos are what got me interested, so I tried a few, and now, The Stamproom carries the the whole line. Opaque, Semi-Opaque and Translucent matte paints.
You have to check out their YouTube videos, here's a link to an informational video they have:

Then look at some of their paint projects, this "bump" technique looks so cool.

"Special Delivery!"

Here's a little quick card using Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps, the stork and the sentiment,
as well as their new Flourished Oval Nesting Die. The paper is from  "Bundle of Joy" 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad from Kaisercraft. I embellished with some brads, a flower and the metal heart from Junkyard Findings - Metal Hearts by Prima. I linked all the items I used to their page in my store. Just in case anyone is interested in taking a closer look.  ;)

April Class Sample

Next class, on Sunday 4/6, this is what we will be working on. Or something similar, since I know my ladies like to "do their own thing".

How about that, a Spring sample. I know for a lot of you Spring seems and feels very far away, but trust me, it's not.
This stamp, Floral Lady,  is by Stampendous, I think that by just changing the colors, you can use her all year around.

I colored her with Copics, used the new "Grape Crush" Stickles to highlight a few things, and painted the "Fine Oval Frame" by Make it Crafty with "Silks".
