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.
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!

We are sailing the High Seas with "The Captain" and all the AO crew mates with January's new release for 2017! Follow along the blog hop for a chance to win and all the details are below!
We have stamps, papers and dies oh my! The Captain, Vagabond Treasure Paper and Steampunk Gears die set will get you in the mood for some ocean fun!
This card started with a "Vagabond Treasure Paper" layer, a black piece of cardstock in which the "Steampunk Gears Die Set" was used to cut out the shapes. The gears were lightly inked over with Opalite Golden Mist and placed in random order of the die cut outs, the wrinkled black paper was also highlighted here and there and then flattened out. The young boy was fussy cut and colored with Salty Ocean and Antique Linen. The sentiment was cut apart and inked with Ground Espresso and some Salty Ocean splats.
For the tag using "The Captain" all images were stamped on the Vagabond Treasures Paper, cut and backed. The black tag was bleached stamped to add a little interest.
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you will enjoy the blog hop! Happy New Year!
