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.

Daisies & Dahlias.....oh my!!! New Petaloo

Color me a happy scrapper cuz when I opened my DT box all I could do was smile, smile, smile.

Tell me that these flowers don't look like they were made with G45's Olde Curiosity Shoppe in mind!  The color of these flowers is just amazing; incredibly soft and beautiful and appreciated so much more when they are in your hands. 

 I looooooove that Darjeeling Daisy *kissy noises*  The tips have this soft apricot wash that adds such a soft pop of color.  YUMMY!   Those little dahlias are part of the Darjeeling line as well.  They are part of the Nightfall collection.  This collection has a lot of gray, black and this incredible blue.  They just scream SHABBY!!!!  So romantic.  Don't you think?


I think by now you can tell that I am a sucker for lace and lace bows.  I love the texture and timeless feel they bring to a page.  I couldn't think of a better way to finish it off than by embellishing it with a Nightfall Dahlia and those CUTE Hat Pins!!

Here I paired up Darjeeling Shabby Beige Dahlias with mini daisies from the Nighfall collection and a few more Hat Pins. I gussied up the tips of a few of my petals with some glitter.  Don't you just wanna touch them?

Thanks so much for stopping by!!!!
