STAMPlorations Art Marks release hop

 

Hello and welcome to the mini hop celebrating the release of Art Marks, definitely a great set for mixed media artists, but pretty cool for CASSY (CAS/messy) folks as well. See those splatters. And arrows. And great scribbled circles. Lots of fun to play with for great color combos or watercolor effects. Or a giant bunch of craziness like on my creation.


I grabbed a gazillion Adirondack dye ink colors and picked a stamp and stamped it a couple times in a couple colors. Then picked another stamp and repeated. I decided to use the "fly high" sentiment so pulled out the ARTplorations Some Birds stencil and applied some embossing paste selectively through it once I was done stamping.

Notice below how the dye ink absorbed into the paste when it dried? Coolio. I added a heat embossed sentiment on a black snippet and a couple nail-polished wood veneer arrows and that's it!


This set is available 10% off until March 2nd. Check out the rest of the DT projects here and leave comments by the end of day Friday too for a chance to win the set. Happy hopping!

I'm hopping over to the challenges at:

Inkspirational - POP (If my pops of color aren't enough, my stenciled birds pop off the card as does my sentiment!)
Simon Says Monday Challenge - Inspired by a Song (If you don't already, watch this video and you'll have an Ohrwurm thanks to Gary Barlow)

  17. I love how the stencilling becomes almost invisible because the ink has soaked in, so you still get to see the stamping. Love the nail varnish colours!
