I stamped the circle onto white cardstock with brown ink. I cut it out with the largest Large Circle Nestabilities. (YAY!) I am not sure if I would use white as a background again, it seems too harsh and almost hard to look at. Bummer, I will have to experiment. :)
I stamped the image again on Ocean Tides cardstock with brown ink and cut the flowers out. The flowers and the butterfly got stamped in watermark ink with none other than my houndstooth backgrounder. (Hero just released a pretty cute one...)
The stems of the flower were colored in with my YG99 Olive Copic. A great match to the Ripe Avocado cardstock, I think.
The background stamp on the Ocean Tides cardstock is another new stamp. Awesome! Once again, I used watermark ink to stamp.
Please check out your LSS for these new stamps or your favorite online retailer!!
We are expecting "a snowstorm on par with some of our larger storms in history," starting today! Yikes! Seriously, the last biggie had 36 inches of snow in less than 24 hours!! Good thing I have new stamps and hot chocolate! :)
thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!!
