DecoArt and Stampendous Hop...

2014_06_decoart 

The excitement continues as we lead you on a world tour of amazing artists playing with Stampendous, DecoArt, and Princeton Artist Brushes via inspired by Willow Wolfe products together! You'll be amazed at what they've created! If you missed the beginning of our journey, be sure to go back and check it out! MONDAY - TUESDAY - WEDNESDAY


I loved the sheen to the Metallic Lustres! They are perfect for picking up the texure from Dreamweavers Embossing Paste. I used a mix of Silver Spark, Gold Rush, Copper Kettle, Black Shimmer. 


Who says you can't use flowers on a boys layout? To keep a masculine feel to the layout, I kept the colors minimal and simply used three grey Spectrum Noir markers to add a bit of color to the large flowers in the Stampendous Jumbo Lovely Garden. 

I also used the Metallic Lustres to add color to the Stampendous Kraftboard and edges of my alphabet stickers. 


Supplies Used:
DecoArt Metallic Lustre- Silver Spark, Gold Rush, Copper Kettle, Black Shimmer
Imagine Craft - Delicata Silvery Shimmer, Memento Tuxedo Black
•Crafters Companion Spectrum Noir markers- IG1, IG2, IG3
•Clear Scraps Mascil - Quarterfoil 12 inch
•Dreamweavers Stencils - Matte Black Embossing paste
•Mays Art - Diamond Chain
•American Craft Thickers
