PAPERARTSY HOTPICKS LAUNCH - PLATES 1507 and 1508

Heads up people. Leandra is hosting a new range of PaperArtsy Hotpicks over at the PaperArtsy Blog tonight and I was lucky to get to play with two of the sets.



Both sets of stamps have so many great images to use.  I've had my sewing machine out lately and The images just seemed to cry out for a little free motion embroidery. I used some on the tulip for this tag and on the fish for my card. I think they look a bit like mackerel

I used Fresco paints on both items. They work beautifully on fabric.

For the base of each project I used about five colours stamped randomly onto kraft card - squid ink, toffee, chalk, rose and blue oyster



So, first up is my tag, called Astonishing Beauty. I've used lots of elements from both stamps sets. I love the fact you can mix and match them to get the effect you want


and the card I called Plenty More Fish in the Sea. I am now officially addicted to Squid Ink Fresco Paint. It is LUSH!!! I swirled three shades of Fresco paints very loosely through some heavy gel medium to give the graduation on the stenciled brick wall



Zip over to the Paperartsy blog to see ALL the new stamp sets and some really great samples from the Paperartsy gang.  You won't be disappointed.



Enjoy
