Stampendous and DecoArt Blog Hop Wrap Up

2014_06_decoart 

The excitement continues as conclude our grand tour of amazing artists playing with Stampendous, DecoArt, and Princeton Artist Brushes via inspired by Willow Wolfe products! The inspiration has been amazing, and today you'll be even more astonished! If you missed the beginning of our journey, be sure to go back and check it out! MONDAY - TUESDAY - WEDNESDAY - THURSDAY Of course, there are prizes! DecoArt is sending three sets of their Media Fluid Acrylics, Princeton Artist Brushes via inspired by Willow Wolfe is donating Select 3750 Brushes and some Catalyst Wedges, and we'll be adding a Stampendous Creative Palette so you can practice all the techniques you'll see this week. We'll be sending three prize packages to commenters with U.S. Mailing Addresses, and DecoArt will be sending three generous sample packages to international commenters, so all our friends can play. 


To create the painted background, I added three colors of Deco Art paint (American Orange Twist, Patio Paint Bright Lime Green, Patio Paint Coastal Surf) to the Stampendous Creative Pallette and dragged my 2 inch brush through the colors. 


I brushed out the colors, being careful not to accidently turn my brush the wrong way when reloading. Learned that the hard way, lol! 


I stamped the background of the card in Versamark and embossed with Clear Embossing Enamel. The flowers in the Lovely Garden set make a gorgeous background.

To create the focal panel, I cut a piece of the painted background, stamped a sentiment and paired it with a few stacked vellum diecut butterflies. 

Supplies Used: 
•DecoArt- Patio Paint, American
•Beacon Zip Dry
•bling
•vellum

A few of the bloggers this week are new to hopping, so if you have an issue with any of the links, here's a little tip! If you get a page that says "Sorry that Page is not here" or something similar, try clicking on the header of the blog, or look for something that says Home. The hop page should be near the top of the day's posts. We will fix broken links as the day goes on, as well, so check back here if you are really lost.

Love the embossed flowers. I have to get those flowers for my collection. The stripe is so pretty with the different colors. Butterflies are always wonderful on a greeting card.
