Layers of Color New Release Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the Layers of Color first ever Cling Art Stamp Release Blog Hop! We have so much to be excited about at Layers of Color!  Red Rubber on cling.... we're lovin it!  If you got here from the Layers of Color Blog, you are in the right place! If not, you want to be sure to start there so you read all about the release, and the Two New Release Prize Drawings!
Ladies these prizes are fabulous!  And if you don't win with today's hop, then no worries.  Laura, LOC owner is giving away more prize packages in October!  I will be posting more LOC new release projects and info on how you can win for the next couple of saturdays!  You can also follow the LOC blog for details.
So here is my first project.  This is a shabby art piece I can hang on the wall.  I used the Cottage Rose cling art stamp and Flutterescent art stamps on this one.  Cottage Rose is 4 1/2 x 5".  It's absolutely gorgeous!


 The verse is a digital by Nina Brackett. You can check out all of Nina's awesome digi's along with Laura's over at Squigglefly.

You can view more of my Cardboard Art HERE.
You can view my other Faith Art projects HERE.
You can view more of my Collage / Mixed Media projects HERE.

Look at all the detail in this rose!  It's gorgeous!!
I added stickles to the rose and butterflies.



I had so much fun making the background.  I started by tearing away some of the top layer of the corrugated cardboard to reveal some of the ridges.  Then I started layering acrylic paint and crackle paint.  This background makes me so happy.  I love the texture and distressed look!


And here is project #2
One of the reason's I'm so excited about this release is that some of the stamps are compatible with SPELLBINDERS!!!  Whoot!!  See the frame below, it's called Victorian Frame cling art stamp.  And I'm in love with it.  It is compatible with Spellbinders Labels #14.


I also used Nature Walk and Butterfly Collector art stamp sets.


I have updated all the links directly to the post, so just click on the name to check out all the other artist!!

Melisa, the cottage rose stamp is beautiful and you have taken extra care to make it even more beautiful -- same with the butterflies! Love the sparkle and the vintage look! Will you hang it in DS's bedroom; that will surely make him eager to get his own place, yes???? LOL! By the way, I went to Dominos yesterday and it tastes just the way it does in Texas! Miss you!

Olga said...

Both cards are jaw droppers but that first one is breath taking!!!!

nan cee said...

I love what you have done with the Victorian Label. After seeing your card I ordered the stamp. Question for you - When you use the spellbinder label do you cut it first and then try to match up the stamp or do you stamp first and then cut it out? I have tried both ways with other dies and never can quite get it lined up right.
