Inspired by an Artist

Hi!  The card I have to share with you today was inspired by Glenda Mosher’s art.  She is not only a stamper, but an artist as well! I really admire her talent and her lovely paintings!  You can see them for yourself  on her blog.  Glenda’s art was featured as the inspiration challenge choice for this week.  I made two pieces for this challenge!   The first is a card inspired by her Tiger Lily painting.  The second is a little different!  It’s a 1 inch square  “painting”.  I used Rubber Stamp Tapestry stamps for the flowers and stems/leaves, and I sponged in the sky, then used a pin to scratch out white areas to highlight.   I sealed it with Crystal effects.

I used the new Fifth Avenue  and  Botanical Blooms sets from Stampin’ Up! and Bird on a branch for the sentiment.  All are stamped direct to paper (Classic K Margo).  I lined the inside with whisper white.  The florals are colored using a blender brush and inks.

I guess I was missing my old hobby of miniature crafting just a little, and this was the result!   This tiny painting will go into one of my dollhouses.

I’m so glad you stopped by!  Have a great day!
