Artistic Outpost Stamps - LOVE Them!
Only recently have I dis-covered Artistic Outpost and their stunning images and just-as-stunning prose! And I can't think of a better reason to pull out my Ranger Alcohol Inks (& blending solution, of course) to create a perfect background for them. I don't normally give my cards a name, but a title for this one just came screaming to me: "Morning Sky"! After creating the back-ground with Red Pepper, Caramel and Pesto, I stamped the image with Staz-On (Timber Brown, I believe), and inked the edges of the panel with Ranger Distress in Frayed Burlap. I ran the peachy colored card through the Cuttlebug with the new "Diamonds in the Rough" embossing folder, then after attaching the matted (on light olive cs) image, I tied the card with a few strands of my trusty linen floss (Stampin' Up) and added a vintage wood button. Finally, I just had to rough up the edges with my paper distresser tool and sponge with more Frayed Burlap. I just the other day got Artistic Outpost's two newest releases and can't wait to start playin'! Thanks for sharing...

Thank you so much for your kind words. My blog doesn't get visited too much and I don't do a great job of keeping it updated either, but I do appreciate your visit and comments. I loved this card when I saw it and I love your blog as well.
