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.

Petaloo & Quick Quotes Blog Hop

Petaloo has partnered up with Quick Quotes for a blog hop this week and there are PRIZES to be had.  Jump on over and check it out.  Click HERE

All I can say is O.M.Goodness!  The Julie Je t'aime paper line from Quick Quotes is stunning!  Your page will just put itself together.  LOVE that Dusty Attic frame!!!  I painted it, misted it and then embossed it in random places.  I wanted to grunge it up a bit so that it matched the paper.

I added one of Quick Quotes' instant quotes (phew, that was a lot to say LOL) and it gives my page that little something-something it was looking for. 

So get this...not only did I get this phenomenal paper to work with, but I also received some of my mooooooost favorite flowers; the Glittered Fleurs and Canterbury Naturals!!!  *somebody fan me* LOL  Aren't those colors yummy?!

I know!  Chistmas!!!  *runs screaming out of the room*  I can't help it.  I'm going to let you in on a secret....... blue, plum and sparkly are my 3 favorite Christmas colors!  When I took a look at the flowers and paper I knew that I needed to make a winter time page.

I took a few strips of paper that I had trimmed and created a braid with it. 
YUM!!!  Look at those little Canterbury Forget Me Nots just dripping down the page. Gorgeous!

I finished off my page by decorating this spray with sparkly snowflakes and more yummy flowers.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you enjoy the blog hop!!!

XO, Lisa
