Today is the anxiously awaited Waltzingmouse August Release Day - all of the new stamps are now available for purchase at the WMS shop!
And as is our custom - the Design Team is having a blog hop and you can win some WMS stamps! You should start the hop with Claire at the WMS Blog. She will have a master list there if you lose your way. If you came here from Sandie's blog you are in the right place!
First up I have a simple book mark using stamps from Tying the Knot.
here's a close up of the sentiment.
Here is a clean and simple card I made using Ocean Bound. I brushed a puddle of water onto the white panel then 'painted' in the water using re-inkers and more water on a brush. I was trying to do the Mix Ability Challenge on Split coast - but when I got it done and was posting it I realized I didn't use quite the right technique for the challenge (you were supposed to blow on your ink!) But I love how this came out - so here it is! (you can see my re-do here)
2-Step Sprig, the leaf stem from Simple Sprig and two sentiments from the Vintage Garden Seed Packet set released in Aug 2012.
Two year old James loves to help his mum and dad out in the yard and in the backyard vegetable garden. I thought it would be nice to remember his helping out with a special frame for this photo.
I painted the canvas frame with Antique Linen Distress Crackle Paint to simulate the garden soil.
I inked the flowers in blue and green to coordinate with the dominant colors in the photo. I brushed all the blooms and leaf stem with Glitter Glaze Clear Sparkle.
You can see the crackle in the paint on this close up. I sponged Peeled Paint ink over the crackle.
That's it for me! I hope you have fun along the blog hop today - and that you're inspired to create your own garden and nautical creations with all the lovely new WMS stamp sets!
Next on the hop is Laurie!
There will be a prize of a stamp set of choice from a random drawing from comments left on all of the DT's blogs. You have until August 12 at 11:59 PM GMT, 5:59 AM Central, 3:59 AM Pacific and 6:59 AM Eastern to leave comments. The winner will be posted on the Waltzingmouse Blog on August 14th.
