Celebrating Mardi Grass with Joy Clair's Unashamed stamp set!

Hi guys!!
Today the Joy Clair designers are showcasing the Unashamed set with lots
 of different and fun ways to create with this set.

 You can follow along from the
 Joy Clair blog.
I started creating my background for the journal page by adding color with
the gel-press. I also cleaned my roller on these two pages.
Vintage music paper was added with collage medium.  The next
step was adding texture paste through a stencil. I chose a round circle design.

The next step was stamping the Joy Clair/ Unashamed images on the pages.
The masks were stamped (Archival ink/Jet Black) and then painted with acrylic paint.
The sentiments were stamped on watercolor paper and lightly washed over with color.
The Broken Brick background stamp (retired) was applied randomly to the pages.
Also the UH-OH ink Splatter stamps were stamped in random places on the pages.

I highlighted parts of the images with white acrylic paint.
The sentiment squares were adhered to the  journal pages.
 The pages were splatted with white acrylic paint and then I stencil with black ink
 a square type pattern randomly on the two pages.



Have fun hopping along!

Thanks for stopping by~
