Yummy textures and some Fabulous new stamps!

I was so excited to learn,that one of my art idols,
 Lynne Moncrieff ,whom you may know from her beautiful blog Adorn,or maybe from FB or possibly have seen one of the many wonderful pieces she has had published in almost all of the Stampington magazines,(that's alot to say in one breath!) 
Well,Lynne had designed not one,but TWO sets of sentiments stamps...
I just Had to have them and I was Over the moon with excitement when they arrived in my mail from That's Crafty! 

Within another day,another recent stamp purchase, from Chocolate Baroque arrived as well!

annnnnd,lets not forget to mention my recent package of winnings from Emerald Creek Dares~ who just happens to carry some of the most yummiest embossing powders I have ever seen!

Okay,now that you know I had a super mail week,on to what I have created with my new treasures!
Using a piece of cardboard, I tore away parts and applied modeling paste mixed with crackle paste to what was left. Once dry I spritzed a bit of water and added my beloved Infusions,and then more spritzing. 
And when this was put aside to dry completely,boy oh boy!
did that crackle ever do it's job with those infusions!!
Next up was a piece of watercolor paper cut to fit inside of the cardboard piece.
Some background stamping and then more Infusion love using favorite colors.
Now to use my new stamps from Chocolate Baroque~a few background crocuses in the same ink as the background script,then three lovely flowers over the top and brought to life with white embossing powder.
At the flowers feet is deliciously chunky looking and beautiful embossing powder from Emerald Creek~Fractured Ice  this was added to act as the soil for the blooming flowers
Yumminess all over~texture and color! 
What more could a girl ask for right?
maybe more stamping?
On a separate piece of cardstock,I used one of Lynne's new sentiments,oh how I just love this phrase!!
(as well as all of the others Lynne designed) 
Thank you so much Lynne~your stamps are fabulous!
 The watercolor paper was added to the cardboard piece both by securing with glue and by using grommets which were colored with alcohol inks.

After the stamping was dry,I added a bit of color,
using a water heavy paintbrush and spots of Infusion left on my mat-just enough.
 Next,I tattered the edges of the paper and gave them a bit of vintage color


After balling up some string and giving it just the right amount of color it was secured in place using Finn's heavy gel medium and then my quote was added to the center of that.
 The last thing to do was add a few beads and some string to hang with.

and here it is!
Thanks for hanging in there through all the photos and I do hope you were able to feel the excitement I shared with these new products and how wonderful they are!

Oh my gosh Jackie! Your excitement is evident in your beautiful work! This is absolutely amazing. I will definitely be pinning! The infusions look so so good here with your gorgeous stamped and layered imagery. Love that you overstamped flowers on flowers! YES!!! Speaking of happy mail, I received the most amazing package from you! The little book you made me made me smile from ear to ear. It is absolutely fabulous! You are so crafty and utterly genius! The paperdolls are precious and will be treasured - so thank you thank you for thinking of me! I truly appreciate all of the odds and ends you included and will do a pic just as soon as I come up above water. My daughter graduates tomorrow and I am buried in cheese platters and cutting pineapple! LOLOL! Happy weekend, Autumn

Jackie, a fabulous textured piece, so much detail. Love the crackle and 'soil'. Thanks so much for entering our final challenge on the Chocolate Baroque CHallenge Blog, Judith xx

Sara Barker said...

Oh, my goodness, Jackie! Can I just say that your excitement is clear, and VERY contagious! What a fabulous mixed media make, and perhaps a new favorite of mine! (Anytime someone used embossing powder, I get excited!) The Fractured Ice looks great as garden soil; I think I may have to go sprinkle some on my veggie garden, which needs a little magic. And those stamps! Wow! Another thing I must add to my wish list. Your background panel is simply delicious in texture and color! And I am one lucky girl to see your crackle/infusion (am I right to assume it's Infusions?)backgrounds in person! I love the wall art you made for especially for me! And all those little goodies to play with that came in MY Happy Mail package from YOU! A post is in the works! And yes, I got your e-mail. Just haven't had proper time to respond. Hugs to you!

PS Thank you for sharing your wonderful quote with us at A Vintage Journey and your dreams with us at Emerald Creek Dares!
