Springtime in Paris AO Style!

Welcome to the February Artistic Outpost New Release Blog Hop! Below you will find all the details to hop along and a chance to win a prize!
Roses In Paris is one of three gorgeous background stamps in this new release. I first stamped the image using Black Archival, colored using markers all the images and then inked over with Distress Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap. Next I cut and distressed the edges and shaded using Distress Ground Espresso.
Next choice to share with you today is the Eiffel Collage. This beauty was stamped in VersaMark, clear embossed and then inked over in Distress Black Soot. I ironed off the embossing and then used a clear sealer to set the ink. I stamped again using Archival Black and then fussy cut and the images were watercolored using markers. Archival Sky Blue and Red Geranium were used to stamp the Postage Stamps and again fussy cut.

Here are the lovely stamps available and thank you so much for hopping along today!

Please Visit the rest of the design team for more lovely artwork and inspiration!

Terry! I have never heard of ironing off heat emboss!! What a fabulous effect & great idea for my mind to play with. I understand it. What a beautiful effect it gave your Eiffel Collage card! Thanks for sharing it!
