What’s in Store for 2009 – Fortune Teller by Artistic Outpost

I cannot believe it’s already January 4th and I haven’t posted in 2009 yet!  This card was created using one of Artistic Outpost’s new plate, Fortune Teller.  Initially I wasn’t sure how I’d like it, but I have to admit it has lots of possibilities!  The stamps are so versatile, yet cohesive.

I used Whisper White cardstock (SU!), and Basic Grey’s Periphery.  First time I used Periphery and I found the colors to be perfect for this project.  I stamped the images in Hybrid Palette’s Noir, and antiqued the edges of all the paper pieces with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  The image was colored with Primacolor Pencils and blended with odorless mineral spirits.  I used gold Spica glitter pens for accents, and gold braided trim as my only embellishment.

Thanks for looking!  Hopefully I’ll be back before another week passes us by (where does the time go?)



  1. Wow, that is so cool.
    I just found this whilst browsing my ‘bloglines feeder’ and couldn’t believe it after my day today… check my ‘Turban-wearing man’ post and you will understand why this seemed so appropriate for me today.
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. That card is so ‘getting to me’ lol, Would you mind if I use it in my post with a link to your blog?

  3. Hi Lorri! Feel free to link to this post! I’m pleased that it “struck a chord” with you! Best wishes! Anita

  4. Thank you so much Anita 🙂
    Blog sharing is always fun, and this card of yours is extra special for me today!
