Artistic Outpost - Bring in The Clowns and Happiness


Hello fellow readers, today I have two cards to share  I created using Artistic Outpost Stamps Happiness and Send in the Clowns stamps plates.
I used a background technique from Technique Junkies called Pointillism from the December 2006 issue...Every Week Technique Junkies has a " Try that Technique Challenge" HERE to see what the other Desigers create.  If you are not a subscriber,  I highly recommend Technique Junkies...the name says it all. 
My rendition of this method is a little washed out.  The checkered piece on the Happiness card is embossed Metal using Tim Holtz Texture Fade Plates and Ranger Alcohol inks...I finished the piece with fine sand paper and then brazed the metal with Ranger Black Archival Ink, this gave my piece a brushed metal look.
The Flourish on the Clown is a diecut from Tim Holtz Alterations Sizzix line called Elegant Flourishes
I used La'D' Ore Metal Leaf Mixed applied with the Liquid Adhesive..applied to the flourish. The flower embellisments are from Basic Grey - Sunflower Rouge 

Check out the Play Date Cafe challenge  --  Artistic Oupost is the sponsor for this Week.. You will see some marvelous design work created by the challenge players. Play along and you could win a gift certifcate towards a purchase from Artistic Outpost Stamps.

Thanks for stopping by

Oh goodness Connie! You have been busy and it all looks absolutely wonderful! I was wondering what embossing folder you used with the metal? Thanks and have a great day!
