Today is Sneak Peek #2 for Artistic Outpost’s October release! This is from the new set, Snowy Woods, AO’s first 8 1/2 x 11" plate, and it is fabulous! It has many versatile images that will carry you through the entire winter as well as for the Christmas season.
Stamps: Snowy Woods (Artistic Outpost)
Paper: Blue Bayou (retired SU!), Bravo Burgundy (SU!), Winterberry (Memory Box from Ellen Hustson, LLC)
Ink: Palette Black Noir, Gold Encore, Blue Bayou (retired SU!)
Accessories: oval and scalloped oval Nesties, gold embossing powder, gold cord, Prismacolor pencils, Gamsol (mineral spirits), blending stump, and a sponge dauber
I stamped the image with waterproof Palette Black Noir ink since I’d be using Gamsol (mineral spirits) and a blending stump to color my Santa image.
The gold outline around the Bravo Burgundy (base of card) and the Santa were done by inking the edges with Gold Encore ink and a sponge dauber, and then heat embossing with gold EP. I used a sponge dauber so the metallic border would be uneven and more vintage looking.
The greeting was stamped on a piece of the Memory Box card stock with Blue Bayou, and the edge was completed the same as the other pieces.
The Santa is propped up on foam dimensional tape to make him stand out a bit…
