Emerging Color Stamping Technique

Ok, I'll admit it...I really love stamping and the more I stamp the more I want to stamp. It's a wonderfully vicious circle. Emerging Color is one of those techniques that have some very basic and constant elements to it, but the creative license is all yours in how you present it. I'm sure if you Google or YouTube you will find a ton of tutorials and a lot of them will be very similar. Emerging Color boils down to this one word: resist. This is at its very core a resist technique. The whole trick to doing this is to remember that you will work in layers.

Pages In Time DT Challenge

Here is my page for the Design Team Challenge at Pages in Time.  We were supposed to use the new logo on a page, a card, or whatever we wanted.  I am also using my June Pages in Time monthly kit.

My Girl Scout Troop went to Encampment last weekend and I snapped a pic of my DD while we were at the bonfire.  I printed the pic in black and white and then used my little Tim Holtz sanding block and sanded the edges to give it a time worn look.  I also used some platinum liquid pearls and placed a few dots on either edge.

The paper is all from my June Kit and is comprised of GCD and Prima. I used my new Martha Stewart double loop punch on the pink paper.  I love this punch and would probably use it on everything if I could.  The dark pink flourish border came in my kit and I added two pieces of Dusty Attic.  They are the dark brown flourishes on either side of the pic.  I used Walnut Stain Distress Ink and some Distress Embossing Powder on these.   For the center I cut 2 circles.  One and inch larger than the other and used a wet distress technique on the larger blue circle.  For the smaller circle I used my paper distresser and some Distress Ink around the edge.  I cut the greenery using an svg file and my cricut.  The white satin flowers I found in the wedding aisle at Michael's.

For the Pages in Time logo I used the round cut out from a Dusty Attic Frame.  These would normally be thrown away, but I can never seem to do that!  I inked it up using Faded Jeans Distress Ink and then I used some white paint from a Ranger Paint Dabber.  I added the paint to a paper towel and then dry-rubbed it onto the circle.  I then used liquid pearls again to place the pearls around the outside.  I added dangle ribbon to the bottom and a few more pearls for good measure!!  I was going pearl crazy with this LOL!  The little leaves were left over from another project so I pulled them out of my stash and added them to the page.  Here is a close up.

I once again used an svg and my Cricut to cut out the butterfly.  It has two layers.  The top lacey part, and a bottom solid piece.  I decided to take some pink-raspberry liquid pearls and just place it in random blobs on the bottom layer.  For the top I used Worn Lipstick and Faded Jeans Distress ink.  I then took some pearls and made the body and the antennas.  When the liquid pearls dried, I glued the two pieces together.  Here is a close up.

Thanks so much for looking!!!  If you have any questions please feel free to leave me a comment and your email address so that I can reply!
