Welcome to a week of peeks of all the brand new stamps and Fran'tage essentials from the Stampendous! team! Everyday this week we will be sharing new stuff with you! Be sure to check the Stampendous! blog daily so you don't miss out on the daily list of who's posting!
The new July Catalog is up for your viewing pleasure, and the individual items should be on the website in the next fews days. Many of your local stores already have shipments of new product in!
My first tag for you today appeared on the new July catalog. I stamped the Raven Background in Versamark ink then het embossed it with NEW Aged Wine embossing Enamel (my new fav!!) I then added some pine branches from Jumbo Pine Boughs embossed in Aged Green embossing Enamel.
I then inked over the whole tag in Spiced Marmalade, Cried Marigold, Chipped Sapphire and Vintage Photo using a sponge applicator, added some ribbon and twine from May Arts and volia!
And I wanted to share a tag with you that I created yesterday on a whim combining the Fran'tage style with Dylusions ink sprays. I was demoing at The Stamp Scrap Art tour with both products and thought it would be fun to combine! (sorry its a bad pic, its from my phone)
I started by spraying orange, purple, and brown ink onto the tag and drying that. Then I added a dot mask over the top and spritzed with water for a bleached effect. Again let dry. Next I stamped my new Steampunk Owl in Archival Black ink and then removed some color around his eyes with a water pen.
Then comes the fun Fran'taging part! I scattered some Aged Gold Embossing Enamel under the owl and added some Tea Stained Mica and Black Glass Glitter before I heated it. I added some color to his buckles with a versamark pen and more Aged Gold EE and to his bowtie with Aged Wine EE.
Lastly I added Cling Clock Works background to the top of the tag embossed in Aged Gold EE. Pretty fun, huh? I plan to play more with this double technique soon!
