NEW for CHA W 14…day #3...



again…
I need to start this post with a

GIGANTIC …THANK YOU!

I'm so very happy to have 6 new archival inks added to my palette…and I'm so very happy that you like them too!

today is all about my new STAMP sets…
and________?

this release focuses on what I LOVE the most…

FLOWERS!

I have 6 brand new sets…

since backgrounds are now sold individually, these are all the smaller variety stamp sets…

click the image to see a larger photo…
as always…I LOAD up the sheet with lots of fun sentiments & images...

ready…set…GO!

#1…blooming art…
don't miss the cool border along the left edge of the storage sheet…
I CAN NOT WAIT to sew over the straight stitches...



#2…license plate art…lots of letters/numbers that can be stamped & easily cut out to form other words…or any date we need...VERY FUN!


#3…here's approved art
the top right sentiment applies to all of YOU!
lol...



 #4…framed art… you've seen peeks of the zinnia…
LOVE LOVE LOVE IT & that frame!...

#5 is…true art…I flippin' LOVE the messy words...


#6…the beauty of art…again…don't miss the awesome lacy looking border…we squeezed it in on the left... near the Stampers Anonymous logo…



there are LOTS of mix & match possibilities on these sets & you can mix pieces of them with new & current stencils too…
I can't wait to show you...

we heard loud & clear that you liked the individual backgrounds
I got lots of comments from gelli plate people…
they were really happy…we aim to please!

but background stamps are for another day…

I was going to save this one for the last day…
but I couldn't stand it a minute more…

at the top of the pyramid you'll see my new…

CRACKLED TEXTURE PASTE...


I am over the moon about this new paste…

it makes THE MOST FABULOUS backgrounds 
E V E R!…
if you LOVE mixed media…you will flip when you see this stuff…

the crackled texture paste is used over a very thin layer of either silver or gold metallic embossing paste or over black embossing paste…

this base color is the color that will show thru the cracks…& the base paste keeps the paste securely adhered…

apply a very thin layer of the base paste to the surface…scrape most of it off & put it back in the jar…it takes very little for the base layer…
DRY…you can blast it with the heat tool...
then spread the crackled texture paste over the dry base paste...

it's white right from the jar, but this is colored with one drop of potting soil reinker, before applying it over dry black embossing paste......


here's the crackled texture paste, this time applied randomly over gold embossing paste…
then inked over with archival inks…
I used cornflower blue, forget-me-not & leaf green...






 can you see why I'm so happy to have more archival ink choices?

I use dandelion, orange blossom, watering can & forget-me-not archival inks below
they are applied over the dry crackle texture paste with the blending tool or cut N dry foam...



I keep waiting for the art cops to show up at our front door…
this is so much fun that it's hard to believe it's legal!

I have so much more to share…I have seriously had THE BEST time…making art with it…

thanks for stopping by…
I'm anxious to hear what you think…

new stamps…
new crackled texture paste…
will be fun to

make art!
wendy
ps…see you back here tomorrow!
