New Release Day at Artistic Outpost

It's a wonderful, fun day at Artistic Outpost today.....we have 2 new releases to share with you, Neverland and Haunted Halloween

Also new is the Outpost Attic Findings.   Currently featuring vintage style finding kits with beautiful ribbons and trims.  In these kits, you will receive 1.5 yards of each color of hand dyed rayon vintage style seam binding as well as 2 yards each of the vintage style crocheted trim, and a heaping scoop of vintage mother of pearl buttons perfect for embellishing your prized project.  Kits retail for $6.99. 


Neverland features images from the fairytale land that is home to Peter Pan.  The Darling children are also featured with a lovely ATC sized collage of Wendy and a perfect flying illustration of John and Michael.  Think of the scenes you create with these stamps including  a conversation between Wendy and Peter.  Don't ever grow up!!!



Is that not fun!  The image is stamped inside the Fishbowl Diecut from Creative Cuts and More.  The outside layer I used the Pulled Glimmers tech from the TJNL, and on the inside, I did some creative stippling, coloring the images with watercolor pencils. 





Haunted Halloween is a Victorian inspired collection with vintage witch illustration a cane-swinging dapper skeleton, and a haunted home that could be used without the scary subtext.  Other collage images include a bat border collage and sentiments.




I just had to do this! lol.....The Steampunk image was masked to allow the bats to fly free in my "I'm going Batty" card.  The bg is colored with DI, and the image is painted with the same.  I added a small piece of the Fossilstone tech behind the image, from the TJNL.
Looking for more inspiration using these new releases, be sure to stop by the other designers blogs to see what they've created:

Your Going Batty card is just too stinkin' clever ... I may have to "borrow" that idea ... it would be perfect for lots of occasions. And I love the fish bowl idea ... it frames those images so well.

I like what Lynn said about only you would think of the fishbowl idea!! I was thinking only you (and maybe me) would think of having bats fly out of Mr. Steampunks hat! Both are just so fun and I love them!
