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.

I enjoyed working with this kit so much!  The colors and all of the embellishments really made it easy to put together 3 pages in record time.

This is my brother and my future SIL.  They had some engagement photos taken and I really had to play with them.  :)


 These flowers are a combination of Main Kit and Add-On flowers.  The black beaded wire came in the Bling Me Baby add-on.  LOVE THEM!!


This is a very loose interpretation of this month's kit sketch.  Aren't the colors yummy?  Black and white photos look so good with these colors.

I decided to create a die cut and then layer it with strips of coordinating paper. I wanted to extend the rustic feel of the brick wall they are standing in front of.

 I used the packaging that came with some of our products to create the banner across the top and once again used the beaded wire from our Bling Me Baby add-on to create the banner wire.
