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.

Swirlydoos SGC Challenge - Arches

How do I love thee, let me count the ways.  I am hosting a challenge at Swirlydoos this month. No page layouts, or ATCs!  Those who enter have to create something using an arch.  I've posted arch templates, and created a tutorial for Swirlydoos that shows you how to make these gorgeous glass flowers.


There are a few rules for the challenge.  Your arch must be 6 inches high, you have to use at least 50% Swirly goodies, you have to use at least one piece of Dusty Attic, or a chipboard equivalent (if there is such a thing) LOL.  I will give an extra point for each glass flower.  My examples are simple but that is because I want everyone to see how pretty these can be without going crazy.

The whole point of this challenge is to try something new.  If you have been wanting to try a new technique, a new product....this is the time to do it!  Most importantly, the point is to have fun.  Come on over to Swirlydoos and join in the fun!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
