Day 3 of Artistic Outpost's sneak peeks

Artistic Outpost has released three new plates!! They are Circus, Cutie Pie and Fortune Teller. Be sure to check out their site for special pricing and don't forget that these plates are available unmounted or mounted on EZmount!!
Here is a monochromatic sample that I made using the Fortune Teller plate. I absolutely love this image. I used her before and colored the image in. I wanted to show that it is just as wonderful when you just stamp and don't color it in.

Materials: Fortune Teller (Artistic Outpost), Colormates (WorldWin Papers), Distress Ink-Faded Jeans (Ranger), Paper Trimmer (Fiskars), Tape N Roller Plus (Kokuyo), Ribbon, clipiola

The background for this started by me just playing around. I had a flourish sitting on my desk that I had cut on my Silhouette for another project. I layed it on white cardstock and sponged Faded Jeans ink over it. It looked pretty cool, so I kept doing it randomly placing the flourish on the cardstock. Then I took the negative piece of cardstock that I had cut the flourish from and sponged ink through that. Finally, I stamped "magic" randomly on it. Quick, easy background...done. Layeres it onto white cardstock and then onto a navy card. Stamp main image on white cardstock with Faded Jeans. Then, I lightly sponged ink around her. I would say the rest is self explanatory. Just a bunch of stamping and layering.

Be sure to chech out the Artistic Outpost Blog to see what the other designers did with these plates!

Have a creatively wonderful day!
