ArtsyfArtsy- new 'line' of stamps at Sweet Stamps!

 There is a Facebook Release Party for the new ArtsyfArtsy Stamps at Sweet Stamps HERE

 All of the DT made something for the new Release- I used AF5- Locket Lady
  There are three stamps being released daily - we started yesterday and will continue to release three images thru 7/15.
 I used a combination of inks (Papaya, Orange, Butterscotch, Buttercup) and Creative Inspirations Paints (Buttercup, Pumpkin, Burnt Clay and Fairy Dust) for the background, then embossed the background image using White embossing powder.
 The ATC sized background is Stamped using the AF1 French Script in Shades ink (spot) Gibraltar, and I added watercoloring in Papaya Shades Die ink (spot again).
  The AF5 Locket Lady is stamped in Stormy Gray. The frame of the image was stamped and embossed with Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder.  (***How did I do that?  I simply inked up the edges of the stamp and avoided getting the lady image inked, then stamped on cardstock and embossed it. ) I watercolored the hat/bow and her blouse and bow with papaya Shades Die ink (spot). I decided to add a piece of acetate to make it look like the Locket lady was under glass.....

 I hope you will join us at the Facebook preview!  There are 18 new stamps being released next Tuesday 7/16 at Sweet Stamps, so be sure to leave comments on each preview/project over on the Facebook release Party Page for your chance at winning. Next Tuesday we will have 6 winners!! 2 of whom will be randomly drawn from comments left during our previews on FB.

Shelly this is amazing - love how you have created the backgrounds and the image under acetate is inspired!
I won't be joining the facebook page as I am minimising my time on there these days, and feel so free!! ;-) Sad isn't it that I should have been spending so much time on f/b!
