Eclectica Darcy Collection from PaperArtsy

 I was so thrilled when Leandra, aka Mrs. PaperArtsy, asked me to create samples for the Craft Hobby and Stitches Trade Show. It's call "Stitches" for short, and is the UK's annual and largest trade-only event.
And there were some new Designers brought on with great new stamps and products.
This collection is from the crazy-talented Darcy! Gotta love the Steampunky goodness here.

 New stamps and Fresco Paint colors on a large size 10 tag. You cannot beat stamping on Fresco Paints!!!!!
I use all the plates throughout my examples here....this one starts with EDY08 and adds details from 05, 06 and 07. 

White pen and translucent Frescos are added after the base coat and stamping. 

Is this a HOOT, or what? New to me "purples" in the Frescos....Lilac, Pansy, Amethyst on a #8 tag.

Love the Flourish at the top, too, from EDY05. The phrase and flowers are from EDY06.
 This is an ATC with Paints and markers.

The little house fits perfectly onto an ATC from EM05-08.
This bright center starts with Haystack and adds Zesty Zing. More purples and some Claret. Then pens and stamps with Snowflake on a 6x6 grayboard. (White coated chipboard)
When you start with a WHITE background, the Fresco Paints remain soooooo vibrant you won't believe it!
I cut a 7x7 piece and painted with Hyde Park and Limelight then stamped the border from EDY08. I used this as a frame and added the smaller one on top.
Lots of white pen marks make the colors come to life!

When you add these fun stamps with black permanent inks you can then uses translucents paints over the images and not loose the detail.
Check out the new REVEAL over at the  PaperArtsy Blog  with more samples and REVEAL information.

PaperArtsy will release everything to stores at the stitches trade show, Feb 16,17,18. So be checking with your LSS.
