Happy Birthday 23

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, March 27, 2018 @ 12:58 AM | ,

Hi! I'm joining along with the PTI Make it Monday challenge where the challenge is to create a project featuring stenciled edges. Today we're celebrating my sweet daughter Angie's 28th birthday so this card is for her which features a couple of butterflies and a sentiment from the PTI Butterfly Dreams stamp set complete with stenciled edges using a honeycomb stencil:
I'm so proud of Angie who will be graduating from the university in May. Angie has been competing on the international circuit for many years. During the 2017 season, Angie qualified 3rd at the world competition in China which has earned her a place on the US Cycling Freestyle Biking team. One of her biking goals is to qualify for the 2020 Olympics representing Team USA in Tokyo. If you'd like to see more of Angie, please feel free to visit her FB page here: https://www.facebook.com/angiemarinobmx/ :)
Here are a few photos of Angie in action on her bike:

Inspire 20

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, March 14, 2018 @ 9:25 AM |

Hi! Today I'm sharing a mixed media canvas featuring a variety of fun techniques including stamping, stenciling and dripped candle wax which was a first for me. 
Up close, you can see the dripped wax in various places such as on the butterfly wings and randomly on the metallic embellishments. I was inspired to give the dripped candle wax by the Stamps and Stencils challenge: wax lyrical:
I randomly stamped and heat embossed a doily image using versamark and gold embossing powder:
I randomly added texture using a stencil along with sand texture paste:
For color inspiration, I'm joining along with the Mixed Media Place February challenge:
I'm also linking my canvas to the Paint Party Friday site where they are celebrating their 7th birthday:
