Beware, It's Peopley Out There

As I get older, I'm less and less a fan of "peopley" situations. Big crowds, concerts, stadiums, big cities.

I really like hanging out in my own nearby universe the best. Quiet environments with my favorite humans.

So I was thrilled that Nicole came out with a sentiment expressing my feels. :)

I took her fun retro stencil and used Life Changing Blender Brushes to apply Key Lime, Sweet Mango and Wild Dandelion ink for a quick snarky card for your fellow homebodies.
On Wednesay and Friday I'm going to have two posts featuring the amazing new brush markers I'm in love with. They blend like no others. I can't stop using them . I think half my posts this month are using them, so buckle up!

Picket Fence Studios has two fun companion stamps out today - this ginormous dahlia bouquet, and its mini-me in a 4x4 background - so fun. I colored the background only of the mini version with the markers and then paired it with her new layering word die
Speaking of the markers - one of the reasons I love them is they are SO saturated and vibrant! I colored this adorable new chameleon named Charlie using them with tip to tip blending. I drew in the stick with Copic and created shadows under my crickets. The sentiment is hilarious. Charlie does have coordinating dies.
The next card makes me happy! I'm always working on coloring hair, and this series of stamps make me happy and they make me practice. I stamped this bun stamp and colored it with Copics before cutting it with the coordinating dies. Then I used the ring of flowers stencil, Innocent Pink ink and Life Changing Blender Brushes to create a soft and feminine backdrop. The sentiment is awesome and is from this stamp set.
And one more girl before I go. This sweet ballerina stamp set is going to be so fun for watercolor, but today I colored her with Copics and cut her out with the matching dies. Then I used my Foil Press with this dots foiling die (full card front size) and this holographic hot foil in my Gemini to create the background. I die cut it into a circle to spotlight her and that was that! The dots die and the machines are on sale right now too. (If you want to know more about hot foiling and how it's different from toner foiling, see my blog post from September 30th.)
There are more Picket Fence goodies out today - so you can see all the goodness here. The supplies I used today are listed below.

Dry Layers Vs. Very Dry Layers Video

My favorite techniques are accidents that turn into moments of discovery!

Today's technique started with an idea from my friend MariLynn, as you'll see in the video. But because of an accident, it turned into two totally different techniques/results. Both are very fun, and this process actually helped me solve a Gel Press puzzle my sister and I have been working on for nearly a year so wahoo! I'll try that one soon.

In the meantime, before the video, the cards!

This first card is actually the result of an accidental step in the first technique and I love it. You won't believe how this was created.

The products I used here were this wildflower stamp set, this funky poinsettia stencil, Liquitex Basics White Paint, Indian Yellow Golden Open paint, Staz-On, Phthalo Blue Green Shade Open Acrylic, my 5x7 Gel Press, and this hello die - best $5 I've ever spent..
For this fun card with the original technique MariLynn taught me, I used this turquoise Archival ink, white paint, Indian Yellow, Quin Magenta Open Acrylics and this fun fluorescent paint. The die is from this setThis gorgeous ginormous peony is this single background stamp. Believe it or not, both of these use the same process with one difference - the clock.
 So enjoy the video, along with all the other prints I created during this session! And some meowing cats!

Stay tuned below the video for a life-altering discovery I made after suffering my whole life! Seriously!

Okay - so I have misophonia, and so using packing tape KILLS me - it's so freaking loud!! I use a tape gun a LOT, and so this is a constant terror in my life.

I have tried a lot of the so-called silent tapes and none have worked. Until now. 

I almost cried when I used THIS TAPE! It's actually silent tape. And it does not appear to be any less awesome than screechy tape! So go forth and save your ears!

Loveyameanitbye.
