Today is March release day for Artistic Outpost! I was thrilled to receive the new plates! I have been happily playing with the new plates. The release includes: Quote and Quotables, Flower Market, and Secretary Pool.
The Quote and Quotables includes quotes from a variety of women. Including J.K. Rowling, Audrey Hepburn, Lucille Ball... So many wonderful quotes to play with. The Flower Market is a combination of butterflies, flowers and French elements. (All of my favorite things!) The Secretary Pool provides a vintage blend of all your office tools and so fun to ink up!
My first project took me over a day to create but I enjoyed the exploration of trying something new and different:

I started with an old book which I spent some time burrowing into on the one half to create a little space for my fairy and lavender.
I am not going to share all the details on the book as it would take awhile. If you have questions, please feel free to email me. Products used: Artistic Outpost - Flower Market, Neverland, Paris Exposition, Watercolor pencils, Glimmer Mist - Purple, White Acrylic Paint, Vintage Photo - Ranger Distress Inks, Pearls, Doily, Recollections Flower Trim, Sizzix Rose Blooms Die Cut, Ranger Archival Ink .
My next project uses one of the new quotable stamps:
I love this quote and it works so beautifully with the Birds of a Feather plate. I stamped the script from the new Secretary Pool on muslin in the background with a little smears of white acrylic paint. The quote from Emily Dickinson is stamped on tissue paper using Versafine green ink. I added burlap, feather, statice and buttons as accents.
The background of everything is glimmer misted green and yellow. Then the images are stamped using Ranger Archival Black ink. Then a layer of white acrylic paint is smeared onto the surfaces to soften the color.
The images are stamped from the new Secretary Pool and the Steampunk plate. The edges are distressed with the distressing tool and sponged around the cardbase with Vintage Photo. The edges are stapled and accented with snaps.
