Artistic Outpost New Release!

Talk about a great way to start of 2015 with a New Release from Artistic Outpost, which will knock your Hat's Off and a Blog Hop with prizes!! Prize details and blog links to follow, but first let me share a couple of the projects I completed with more to follow! I have to say I loved the entire New Release and had a blast creating and ideas are still flowing! Nothing like the smell and touch of new rubber and then add the incredible design elements!
It was hard to decide what to share today, so I went with the two projects I completed and number #1 uses Hat's Off and Hats Background. The background panel was cut to 5x5 and then inked with Shabby Shutters, Crushed Olive, Pumice Stone and Brushed Corduroy. Peeled Paint was used to shade the brown areas and Walnut Stain on the green areas. Edged lightly with Black Soot and flicked on some good old water and then stamped the Hats Background in Black Archival and then distress the edges. Added a couple more layers of paper for the final card base of 5 1/2 x 5 1/2.
After I stamped and colored this gentleman with Brushed Corduroy, Shabby Shutters and Tattered Rose, I lightly inked over the entire image with Antique Linen. I did cut two hats as I was going to prop him up a little and I wanted more stability on the hat edges.
Next I stamped, inked and cut apart a sentiment from Hat's Off and placed on the film strip, added washi tape, glued down some ball chain and added a few more bits. Love all the stamps in this set!
Pretty cool aren't they??
My second feature today is a single, Winter Walk with the sentiment from Skating Emporium. Right about now I am pretty sentimental where dogs are concerned and this reminds me so much of the bond between humans and their dogs.
The image was stamped in Black Archival and water colored using Tumbled Glass, Frayed Burlap, Vintage Photo, Fired Brick, Tattered Rose and Peeled Paint. I added a little snow texture to the snow covered ground and roof top by thinning some white acrylic paint and added Rock Candy glitter and painted it on with a liner brush and finished with photo corners. For the background I applied paint to the snowflake stamp from Skating Emporium and stamped this on white paper. Once dried I inked over with Tumbled Glass and shaded with Vintage Photo. The sentiment also from Skating Emporium was stamped inked and cut apart and placed along the snowflakes.
Here is a little looky at the rest I will be sharing over the next few weeks and hope you have enjoyed my part of the New Release Blog Hop and thank you for stopping by. Now be sure to visit all of the DT during this blog hop for three random winners will be chosen and awarded a $15 gift certificate to the AO store of rubber goodness.

Love your cards. Your background color is perfect on the hats card. I'm always a sucker for a stamp with a dog - and you sure did a great job with it. Thanks for the inspiration!
