Artistic Outpost Stamping

More fun from Artistic Outpost and their wonderful Red Rubber Stamps!

 Lots of fun here with a combinations of many different products.

I started with Distress Stains on a water-sprayed #8 Manila Tag and added the stamps from Whimsical Melange set with Jet Black and Coffee Archival Inks.

I begin with Wild Honey and Dried Marigold in the middle, add Broken China, Barn Door, Fired Brick. Keep going while wet with Chipped Sapphire and add Tea Dye in spots to blend.

Trial and Error, and just plain practice with lots of luck, Mo!

Then some Tissue Tape- Symphony at top and bottom.

 Next was a layer of Rock Candy Distress Stickles all over the tag.

 The On the Edge Die-Ornate was used to cut a piece of Grungepaper and colored with various blue Distress Inks. It makes a great edge at the bottom.

The lovely lady is from the Flapper Fashion set stamped onto Manila cardstock and cut out. She's layered up with pop dots.

The Grungeboard Heart was left over from a previous project, but fit perfectly here with the other Tissue Tape.

I cut some Metal Foil tape with the Decorative Strip-Vintage Lace die and added it to the roof line of the house stamp.

A Spinner goes great on the clock stamp, don't you think?

The Charm Clip was used to add the Muse Token to the Distress Stained piece of fabric. I have no idea where this piece of fabric came from. I found it in the "stuff" box. Anyone know?

I added a Plaquette and some Tissue Paper-Market Days from Collections to a skinny bottle that had Cranberry Alcohol Ink spun around in it.

The tissue paper is colored with Distress Inks to age.

Lots of color, and plenty of stamping here for great fun.

Check out the Artistic Outpost wonderful stamps at Inspiration Emporium.

TTFN as Tigger would say!
