Backgrounds/Typography or Sentiments - AO March DT Blog Hop

Welcome to the Artistic Outpost Design Team Blog Hop! Each month, the fabulous designers at Artistic Outpost showcase projects created with various Artistic Outpost Plates/Themes, this months DT Blog Hop focus is on Artistic Outpost Background, Typography and Sentiments collections.

I created  Mixed Media card, using images from the Artistic Outpost Paperboy, Whimsical Melange and Typography Sets.

Mixed Media Card using stamps from Artistic Outpost - Designer Lisa Somerville
The background was created with the Gelli Arts Plate, Acrylic Paints and the Paradise Stencil from The Crafters Workshop.  After the panel was dry, I added some Wet Embossing using bits of the Paradise Stencil.  The sweet group of friends are stamps on a scrap piece of monoprint, then colored with STAEDTLER Ergo-Soft Watercolor Pencils, blended with Gamsol.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost Paperboy, Typography, Whimsical Melange
Card Stock - Vanilla, Black, Teal
Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink
Other - Gelli Arts Plate, Ink Blending Tool, Acrylic Paint, The Crafters Workshop Paradise Stencil, Heat Gun, Brayer, White Embossing Powder, Gamsol, Blending Nibs
