Artistic Outpost Design Team April Blog Hop

Welcome to the Artistic Outpost Design Team April Blog Hop! Each month, the fabulous designers at Artistic Outpost showcase projects created with various Artistic Outpost Plates/Themes, this months DT Blog Hop theme is Designers Choice.  

If you are a fan of Artistic Outpost, I'm sure you read the email from Robyn last week, or this message posted on the Artistic Outpost Facebook page. With over 354 projects on my blog featuring Artistic Outpost plates, it's no secret that I LOVE creating with Artistic Outpost images, and I am excited for the plans and expansion of the Artistic Outpost brand under the new ownership! Be sure to read the Press Release here for more details!

For my project, I created a Mixed Media card using the Artistic Outpost Think and Wonder, Generation Redux, Happiness and Paperboy plates.

To create the background panel, I applied DecoArt American Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint in Poppy, Costal Waters and Orange to my Gelli Arts Plate, then added the Dots Stencil from Just a Trace and some Punchanella to the plate, and made a print onto Mixed Media Paper.  After the background panel was dry, I dry embossed it with a piece of Punchanealla for added texture, then stamped the images in Ranger Black Archival. The sentiment, butterfly and children are all stamped on Mixed Media paper then adhered to the printed background using DecoArt Decou-Page.
