The Stamp Review Crew - Awesomely Artistic Edition

http://stampreviewcrew.blogspot.com/2015/08/stamp-review-crew-awesomely-artistic.html

This week on The Stamp Review Blog Hop we are using the stamp set Awesomely Artistic. Its is a stunning set to colour, emboss, use in a collage and be really creative with. It's just beautiful!
 For those hopping along for the first time, we are a group of International Stampin' Up! demonstrators and we have a blog hop of the first and third Monday of each month. Each hop showcases one stamp set and we like to show you lots of different creative ways to use it!
Remember, if you get lost on the hop click on the banner at the top of this post and this will give you the list of all the 'hoppers' in The Stamp Review Crew.

You may have joined me from fellow Aussie and most amazingly talented Jessica Williams or you may have started here with me. Either way you are in for a creative treat!

This is what is in the stamp set. It may not look like much but once you start putting some or all of the elements together you can have some beautiful creations.



What  I have done today is embossed the flower image with gold embossing powder on vellum. I've then turned the vellum over and coloured it in from the underside with  Stampin' Write Markers. This makes the colouring really easy and then you can be a bit quicker and not so 'neat' with the colouring because it doesn't matter too much if you go slightly over the line.



The 'hello' is from the Hello You Thinlits and then the 'friend' is embossed on vellum with gold embossing powder.


Here is just a closer look at the colouring. When colouring this way use a brighter colour. The vellum will give the colour a softer, muted tone and won't look so bright. If you use a soft colour you really won't be able to see it that well.


I've embossed the dragonfly image with gold embossing powder on the gold foil sheets. I really love the gold on gold look. It's just stunning.




Here are a couple of my recent creations where I have used Awesomely Artistic.

  10. Goodness - love the spray of flowers in gold especially combined with the gold thread behind the dragonfly. But I admit the white embossed flowers with the hint of pink simply steal the show for me. What a beautiful look; reminds me of a beautifully stitched fabric. Thanks for sharing your inspiration with us :)
