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.

Valentine Spotlight Kit at Swirlydoos

Well,  Mr. Swirlydoos put together a Valentine Spotlight Kit and I just couldn't resist.  This paper from Echo Park is really quite lovely.  One thing is for certain, there is wayyyyyy more pink paper in this kit than I have ever used in my life!  LOL

This first picture is from our wedding day.  We have a Harley Davidson and we rode that to the reception. Can I just tell you how many yards of fabric I am sitting on?! I am actually sitting way higher than I normally do and my dress was actually pushing up! I could have hidden my head behind the neckline!! My hairdresser used a hairspray that she actually had labeled "Hurricane Spray". My hair didn't move. We had our pictures taken where we had our reception. Not a hair was out of place. LOL It was a blast! A friend of ours was wearing his kilt on his Harley. There were 8 bikes all together. We were a site.

The kit came with some chip board hearts from Kaiserkraft.  I used Tattered Angels Glimmer mist in pink and pearl on the chippie.  I love the little berries and flowers from Petaloo!!

This next page is of my DD when she was 2.  The picture was taken at a local department store.  I wanted this page to look like candy.  I used the chipboard hearts as templates for my paper hearts and used some of my beloved rubber stamps to dress them up a bit.

I used water to get the pleats in my "awing curtain".  The kit came with some really great stickers too!

I used some of the coordinating paper and a paper punch to make my flowers.  
Thanks so much for stopping by today!!!
