Stampendous. The Design Team has combined the regular monthly challenge with a blog hop showcasing some of the great new products released at CHA! As you hop from blog to blog, please be sure to leave some love (and your contact email) for the designers, as well as on the Stampendous blog. The more you comment, the better your chances are to win one of five fantastic prize packages. Each one includes a brand new stamp set and bottle of color fragments from Stampendous.
Color Fragments are bits of pure color that you can glue to any surface using your favorite liquid adhesive. You can also sprinkle them into still-warm melted embossing powders for an amazing Encrusted Jewel look. You can crush them easily with your fingers to create smaller fragments and you can customize the colors to match your card.
This is exactly what I did to create the stamens of my Stargazer Lily. Color Fragments come in five terrific colors which are available at the Stampendous online store but I wanted something closer to that wonderful orange stamen color that stains your fingers and clothes. To create this color, I sprinkled a few taupe fragments into three little cups. In each, I added just a few drops of Copic refill ink (a different color for each cup) and mixed for even coverage. After the fragments had dried, I simply used Glossy Accents to add them to my lily.
