ColourQ and a Waltzing Mouse!
This week is the first week for the new Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge blog! I had longed for some of the wonderful stamps from Waltzingmouse and finally about a month ago I was able to get my hands on them. Can you say LOVELY??? Because that is what they are, lovely. I paired this week's ColourQ challenge (cqc36) with Waltzingmouse's first sketch (WMSC1) challenge. Isn't that little knitted toy just the cutest thing?? It reminds me of my boys "Ugly Dolls"! And what fun colors! Now, Claire Brennan, the owner of Waltzingmouse Stamps is well a creative genius! She designed a whole line of stamps that work perfectly with a lot of those Spellbinders Nestabilities we all own. And, it gets better! Her image sets are just out of this world!
For my card I used the WMS set Asian Gardens. A beautiful set and I can truly say I have not seen another set like it out on the market. Can't wait to use it again, and again, and again! I stamped the tree top portion on white cardstock with VersaMagic Aspen Mist ink which is very, very close to SU!'s Sage Shadow and then trimmed all parts out. I did all my diecutting any layering and then stamped the trunk in the center with Choc. Chip ink and layered on the tree top parts. Added some rhinestones and a few more bits and I was done.
I will be giving this card to my older son's special education teacher, along with a small gift. Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
