Paper Makeup Stamps and Quixotic Paperie Blog Hop

Happy Monday everyone! Is that an oxymoron? Is there such a thing as a "Happy Monday"? Well, for the Paper Makeup Stamps and Quixotic Paperie DT it is! We are combining forces for the first time ever. Quixotic Paperie is the only supplier of Paper Makeup Stamps in Europe, so we thought we'd get together to show off our beautiful stamps!

I'm using two of my favorite sets: Faith Hope Love and Little Moments.I went to a class on Saturday at my LSS. The instructor was Wendy Vecchi from Ranger Industries. She taught us various techniques using Ranger distress and pigment inks. This one was one of my favorites which she called Ghosting/Faux Bleaching. I stamped this beautiful stamp in their Snow Cap white pigment ink and stamped it on the paper. I heat set it until it was dry, then used the sponge applicator to apply Spiced Marmalade and Tea Dye distress inks. The more color you apply, the better the image shows up. I did the sponging while the paper was still in the die.

The dp is Basic Grey's Ambrosia. I saw a card on Karen Giron's blog that gave me the inspiration to use up some of my scraps of this dp. I can't remember where I got those orange discs...they were sent to me when I was guesting on the Color Throwdown. The ribbon is SU's basic gray taffeta and I used the Bow Easy to create my double bow. I stamped the sentiment from Little Moments in Memento tuxedo black.

I have a list of the participants in this hop below for you to check out. Hope you are enjoying hopping with these two countries! Thanks for stopping by!
