Today is our big hop day for Stampendous Catalog Release Week! I hope you've enjoyed some of my samples as well as all of my talented friends on the design team. We have a wonderful array of samples to show. I know because we've all been sharing amongst ourselves because we are just that excited about today.
THREE of the bloggers today will be choosing a random commenter from their blog, and those lucky people will be announced on the Stampendous blog Tuesday, July 31 (please leave comments by Monday, July 30 at 11:59 PM PST). The more places you leave a comment, the better your chances are to win! Here's the three possible giveaways to drool over!
Here's my sample today. It was so much fun to make! I think it came together pretty fast, but honestly I was just so into it I enjoyed every step of the way.
The stamps I used were Cling Cherish Family, and Scrolled Medallion from the July catalog. The border stamp is from Jumbo Cling Amaryllis from a previous release. I used lots of fun Essentials like Hunter Color Fragments, Aged Gold Embossing Enamel, Gold Halo Glitter Mix and Aged Silver Embossing Enamel. The edges were distressed with a 6B woodless pencil because I did all of the embossing on a piece of tissue paper and that's how I marked out my edges. I added a few more to make it look like it was done on purpose, that's all. The blotches are Mushroom alcohol ink from Ranger that I was brushing from the top and bottom edges, but yeah, I had too much on my brush and started the drops. I made a few more around the canvas so that it would look on purpose. See, almost everything I do has an accident on it. The key is just turning it into a happy accident. LOL
So I'm sure I've left some information out of my description, but I'm sure you want to keep hopping! The full hop list is below but your next stop is the amazing lady herself, Wendy Price.
