All this week, the Stampendous Team has been sharing fantastic projects that were created using all new Stampendous stamps. I am so honored to be a part of this team of extraordinary women whose artistry inspires me and challenges me to push my limits and create.
Please join us today for a New Release Blog Hop. I know you will be amazed with what you see. Please remember to comment on each blog. We love your input and as an added bonus, there will be three random prizes. When you see something you like (I know you will), keep in mind that all of the images are now available at the Stampendous Online Store.
Recently I had the opportunity to take a colored pencil class from Terry Medaris. He is an incredible artist and teacher. I was so excited I drove home (around a two hour trip) and stayed up most of the night to create this framed art. I am a CAS card maker whose comfort zone is coloring with my beloved Copic markers so I surprised myself when I created this unglazed tile in a distressed frame. It uses the new, very cool, Stampendous Nestled Bird stamp, plus the Stampendous Serenade sentiment and my go-to Stampendous Music Score stamp.
The corner embellishments are Momenta Metal Stickers that I embossed with Stampendous Aged Bronze Embossing Enamel. Here is a close up of the Music Score and one of the embossed flourishes and some directions if you would like to try your own Nestled Bird Distressed Frame artwork.
