Stampendous Winners and an Artful card

Hello Everyone! What fabulous hops for the Stampendous Catalog Release last week! We’ve shown you all of our ideas on how to use some of the newest and greatest products from Stampendous. Hope you were inspired and ready to dive in with some new goodies you'll be getting soon. For some of you those goodies are prizes and I’ve got the LONG list of winners today.

Sorry about the delay in announcing my blog giveaway winner. I was a little mixed up in the schedule or just plain too excited to announce, but it's finally here! The winner from my blog had to comment on all three of my catalog posts during the week… so that lucky winner is…

With all the fantastic sentiments that Stampendous has in the new catalog we are going to be focusing on sentiments for the August Challenge. Wait? Isn't it still July? Yes you're right, but I get to jump the gun so you can all be the first or almost first to link up this coming Saturday when the new challenge hits the Stampendous blog. You have until Thursday to still get in on the July CITRUS color challenge.

A few fun items on my card today include the Follow Art stamp and various glitter from the Over the Rainbow kit. The glitter and flock in that kit are great because they are paired to match. Nothing makes it more hard to work with embellishments than when they don't match, right! Okay so the simple of this card was super fun. I stamped on watercolor paper with Memento Tuxedo Black and let dry. Wet the entire surface and painted with acrylic wash. The black splatter is from a wet toothbrush filled with black wash acrylic paint. After that was dry I used my Quickie pen to make drops of glitter around the edges after I framed it with black cardstock. I penciled in some splatter marks and added glue from my Quickie pen only one splatter at a time going from dark to light with the glitter. It was a fun card to make.
