Welcome to the Artistic Outpost February Release!


Hi Friends! 

Today we are celebrating the February 2017 Release at the Artistic Outpost!


This new release comprises of three gorgeous background stamps, Eau de Parfum, Eiffel Collage and Roses in Paris and I absolutely love all three of these beautiful images! 

We are having a blog hop in celebration and I hope that you will find the time to hop along with us (see more details below) ....




My first Mixed Media card features the AO Eiffel Collage and the ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies.  


The background was heat embossed with clear embossing on black cardstock as well as black embossing on white cardstock before piecing the two together and coloring with water based markers.

My second Mixed Media card features the AO Eau de Parfum stamp along with ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies and ODBD Beautiful Borders Dies. 


Again, this image was heat embossed with brown embossing powder and watercolors were used for the coloring.  

I think that these gorgeous Parisian inspired images can be used for so many occasions, don't you?

We want you to be able to find the time to hop along with us so I will share more details on how I created each of these cards in a future post :-)  Please stop by and visit my AO Sister DT Blogs and leave a comment for a chance to win a prize!

Julie, Love the embossing, it really makes the background pop. Thanks for the inspiration. Sometimes I need a little help to get me started. Being about to refer back to your cards helps me bunches.
