Ranger Paint Dabbers

I am beginning to add the Ranger paint dabbers to the inventory in the store and played with them for the first time. i saw this tutorial and could not pass it up. (this whole blog is amazing).

the first card was done for sketch challenge #5 over on the board at Paper Patch. we were given this sketch from but were challenged to turn it into a mother's day card.

and here is mine:

I used gold paint dabber but laid it on smooth. then alcohol ink over that. then the texture on the corner and strips was added by dabbing the paint dabbers and then drying with a heat tool. went over it again with alcohol inks. and of COURSE the dots down one side SCREAMED for some pops from Sugar and Scraps and I just so happened to get some brand-spankin new ones in that matched PERFECTLY! Sands of time - shades of gold, bronze and deep burgandy and all shimmery. Below is a close up of the pops and the texture.

next card is based on the mojo monday sketch over on Julee's blog if you play by sunday there is a prize up for grabs!!!

For this one i used the bronze paint dabber, alcohol inks and then the background squares are smudged with matching peeled paint distrass ink and sprayed with pearl mist using the bronze perfect pearls. it is cloudy today so i just could NOT get a pic that really showed the shimmer on this one.

The sentiment is printed out and then i used one of the newest Studio G stamps for the frame.

well i am off to tech club (pray the baby is good for her sweet dada!!)
