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.

 This page was created based on this month's sketch.





Krissy is now making available a new add-on kit.  It is all about mixed mediums.  Yummy with a capital "YUH"!!!  I took a close up shot of a mask that I used Ferro Special Effect Paste with.  It is all glittery and has incredible "touch" appeal.  The best part is that it doesn't crumble and fall apart!!!  The Ferro Paste was in our new add-on!  *squeeeeeeeee*





The colors in this kit are so incredibly beautiful.  I love to mix and match the patterned paper sometimes, and with these papers it was so easy to do. I added some of the chipboard honeycomb that came in the kit and added some of the Ferro Special Effect paste to it along with some Teal Texturez.  I also created pearls using the Viva Pearl Pen that came in the Mixed Medium add on.

I used Teal Texturez and a stencil to create the flowers in my background.  The Texturez came in our mixed medium add on.  Talk about thick and goopy and wonderful!!!!

Can you see how Texturez holds its shape?  It is shimmery too!

Thank you so much for your kind comments and words of support!!!!
XOXO,
Lisa

Libiya jhon said...

I'm impressed, I have to say. Really hardly ever do I encounter a blog that's both educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you might have hit the nail on the head. Your thought is excellent; the difficulty is something that not sufficient individuals are speaking intelligently about. I am very comfortable that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this...Best Cccam Server
