Stampendous Saturday: Pegasus

The first Saturday in February means it is time for a brand new challenge with Stampendous! This month we are challenging you (and ourselves) to add a little texture to your projects. Need a few ideas? You can emboss using enamels or powders, use fun flock, glass glitter, mica fragments, color fragments, or use some embossing folders. The possibilities are endless!

My card today features all sorts of new products, just released at CHA.  I created my own background paper using card stock and one of the images in the Cling Jumbo Iris set.  I stamped the image in Versamark ink, heat set it with Deep Impressions Clear embossing enamel, and then sponged over it using distress inks until I achieved the desired color.  The Pegasus image is stamped on to card stock that was firt stained by spritzing it with a spray bottle filled with coffee grounds and water (same for the cracked glass panel).  On the accent panel, I covered it with Versamark ink and Deep Impressions powder, heating from below and gradually sprinkling on Tea Stained Mica Fragments and Taupe Color Fragments.  I finished off the card with a bit of twill ribbon.

Here is a list of the Stampendous team members playing along today:

We want YOU to play along with us!  Just add your direct link to your card (make sure you've loaded it up with tons of TEXTURE) to the linky tool below my signature (or on the Stampendous blog) no later than March 1, 2012 at 11:00 PM EST.  You do not have to use Stampendous products to play along, but we sure love it when you do!  And as an extra incentive for playing, one lucky person (drawn at random from all the entries) will receive this gorgeous Corset Ladies Perfectly Clear Stamp Set:

Due to shipping restrictions, the winner must have a US address.  We hope you get a chance to play along with us - happy stamping!  And make plans to join us next Saturday, for a fun blog hop, complete with prizes you don't want to miss.  We'll be showcasing all sorts of products just released at CHA!
