Artistic Outpost Playtime Reveal

Here is the full sized version of Sunday's sneak peek! It's on sale TODAY, and tomorrow. It goes back to full price on the first of May, so if you like it, and you want to save some of your valuable stamp budget, head on over to Artistic Outpost and pick up this and the other new set, called Adventure. I stamped this little boy in Aged Mahogany on SU! Confetti twice. He comes in the frame. I sprayed the frame layer with my homemade sparkle spray, then cut the little boy out of the other image so he didn't look like he was suffering from some horrible skin disorder and popped him up with foam tape. The whole frame is popped up off the designer paper as well. All the DP here is Hot Off The Press, including the word cherish and the ribbon. I added lots of buttons, Primas, punches and Crystal Stickles. Three of the five Primas are dyed with Baroque Burgundy re-inker. It goes very well with the Aged Mahogany, and I don't have that re-inker, so I use what I have! This card is heavily aged. I didn't do any physical distressing, but there are layers and layers of ink here. I used the Stardust pen around the sentiment layers, and the center of the burgundy plastic thing is a glue dot sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds.

Thanks for stopping by! I love reading your comments and visiting your blogs. I didn't realize just how much fun this would be when I started!
