CR84FN... 51

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, September 15, 2012 @ 8:55 PM | , , ,

Hello there! Hope you are all having an amazing weekend! Scott and I took a fun Thai cooking class on Saturday at our favorite That restaurant, Malee's. Not only do you get to eat yummy food but you leave with all the recipe's including their secret sauces :) 

Anyways, I'm here today to share a page in my art journal that I made for the current CR84FN63 Color Challenge. 

To create this page, I combined various MFT stamps, Die-namics, paints, sprays, stencils, etc... and this is what I came up with:
Rather than stamping the beautiful butterflies from Inspired by Butterflies with ink, I used black gesso. So fun! All the text on the page was stamped using an image from Die-namics First Class Friend and Stamp Set.


I stamped a silly custom "vanity" license plate using Die-namics Vanity License Die & Stamp Set
Thanks so much for visiting! Please be sure to visit the DT members for wonderful inspiration (listed on my side bar) and the CR84FN site for COMPLETE details. 
Be Sweet :)
