Today, Tuesday, June 8 we are featuring the new set, Believe in You! Here is the hop order:
June Guest Designer- Samantha
Mark's Finest Papers
Here is my card to help introduce the new set, "Believe in You."
I used the wrinkle free distress technique using Tim Holtz Ranger distress inks, which you also can find in the store, in addition to the stamp sets being released today. I used a combination of spiced marmalade, green shutters and mustard seed. I just use wax paper when I do that technique, it seems to work just fine with a mini spritzer. I stamped the egret image twice and cut it out so he would show up nice and white against the background, highlighted with a bit of grey copic. Then I painted the cat tails and the pond water with some twinkling H20s for a bit of shimmer.
The image seemed to want simplicity so I used raffia as a tie around the corners and a little charm of a dragonfly dangling from the top corner. Its behind the egret so he can't see it yet but I'm sure might want it for a yummy snack! :) Thanks for looking.
