Being Serene with Artistic Outpost
I can't remember how I stumbled onto Artistic Outpost's website. All I know is that I had my credit card whipped out in about five minutes flat! Oh, I think maybe someone mentioned them on SCS? Isn't that where we learn all things stamping? Besides here, of course! I have a VAST following, and all five of them visit here every day and hang on my every stamping word. But enough about my immense fan club, let's talk about this card. AO makes stamps that are artsy and sort of grungy in a most impressive way. I like to take stamps and kind of force them out of their comfort zone, which my devoted public knows because they've seen it happen right here. Well, here it is happening again: Almost Amethyst and Basic Gray Lily Kate with one of my favorite AO images. Unexpected bedfellows, I know, but they seem to be having a good enough time together.
