Color Blocking-- the bold clash of colors and graphic, repetitive images. Lexi Daly shows how to create your
own Andy Warhol inspired pop art card using
an inside and out double masking technique
for the perfect one layer color blocked design. While the soup
cans are iconic Warhol, so many images will work for this bold,
graphic look. And with all the colors to choose from, the possibilities
really are endless!
Supplies~Flower Fusion #2, PTI ink and Distress Ink Thanks for stopping by~Angie
Pointillism is a technique of painting in which
small distinct dots of color are applied in patterns
to form an image. Heather Nichols explores this idea
of stamping and use a polka dot stamp and
other tools to apply color to stamped images
in a dot form to color them in. Layering the colored
dots together create wonderful blending
opportunities that take your stamped images to a new level.

I love the sunflower picture by Van Gogh and wanted my inks to look like oil paints, so I decided to try the new Distress Grit I bought for my next OCC in August. I stamped the sunflowers and then painted on the Distress Grit, let it dry and then stamped again to get ink on my flowers. So very FUN!!
Supplies~Simple Sunflowers, THoltz Distress Grit, Zig Watercolors, Photo Finishers,Pint Jar and Pretty Frame die.
Floral Impressionism with Melissa

I decided that my In Bloom stamp set reminds me of the Jellyfish in this month's blog picture challenge. I also used the same technique that Betsy showcased for this week's Make It Monday for the background and will be posting it on the MIM challenge too. My flowers were made with PTI reinkers and Tim Holtz watercolor paper. The background is Autumn Rose and Lovely Lady ink all adhered to a Hawaiian Shore card base. Thank your for stopping by. Enjoy this month Papertrey Blog Hop. ~Angie~
