What a fantastic week! Thank you for hopping along with us and we hope as well that you were inspired to create with Stampendous and DecoArt! We loved hearing from the comments that were left on each blog post over the week.
Here we are on our last, and biggest hop day with international mixed media artist Andy Skinner and his wonderful Design Team at DecoArt. We hope you’ve been amazed and delighted at the inspiration we’ve shared with you. Andy’s stamps are just so exciting and fun to use, and we know you’ve loved seeing the range of the DecoArt Fluid Media line as well.
One reason we focused on the Media range for this blog hop, is that it’s the perfect acrylic paint to use when tinting your Dreamweaver Embossing Pastes! Just one drop of these pigment-rich media paints is enough to tint a generous quantity of paste for making your favorite backgrounds. Don’t be afraid to color your pastes to match your projects. Most Dreamweaver Embossing Pastes can be tinted very easily. Here are some examples from our own Leadonna Fritts! You might just recognize some of these made into projects on her blog this week.
Now get hopping and be sure to leave a trail of comments on each of the designer blogs. Each comment gets you one entry for a great prize package (open to everyone) of all three of Andy Skinner’s newest stamps for Stampendous PLUS a Fluid Media Acrylic Starter Kit.
Hope you’ve been enjoying some mad mixed media skills as we hop this week with Andy Skinner and his fantastic international design team from DecoArt. Even if mixed media, grunge, shabby isn’t your favorite look, we want you to know that Andy’s stamps, designed exclusively for Stampendous, can be used for some really fun and adorable art.
How about this darling card from Pam Bray?
Or this elegant and chic Chocolate Box by Asia King?
Or the sweet distressed frame on this darling wall hanging by Debbie Cole, CDA?
A great set of backgrounds is one of the most versatile things you can have, and Andy Skinner’s stamp sets just hit the mark perfectly! We know you’ll reach for these again and again to add a little texture to your art!

We’re playing with Andy Skinner and DecoArt this week! Did you know that Andy Skinner has started a Facebook Group? “Groups” on Facebook are a great way to communicate directly with artists and companies as well as share your projects you make with their products. On a “Page” you can see what the company is sharing and what their focus is for that day. But in a group you can share with other fans and the focus is on you and your interaction with the company or artist. If you’re a Facebook Member you may want to check out these groups and pages, be sure to click on the links when you’re logged in to Facebook:
Also remember, in a group you have to wait to be admitted. So be patient, that can take a day or so for the administrator to add you, especially if you’re in another time zone!
Meanwhile – whether or not you’re on Facebook, you’ll want to visit these designer blogs today because you could win a wonderful set of Andy Skinner’s stamp sets designed for Stampendous PLUS a Fluid Media Starter Kit from DecoArt! Each comment on a participating blog is an entry for one of three prize packages!
