This week at the CR84FN Color Challenge, there are some soft, girly colors to inspire us: light pink, tan, and cream...
I chose to use the Vintage Garden-Seed Packet image that is now available in the Waltzingmouse Stamps store!
I stamped the seed packet in Espresso Truffle ink, chose the carnation image for the center, then shaded both with Copics. It's very hard to see, but at the bottom I stamped Text-It with Latte ink and then ran the piece through my cuttlebug with a Sizzix flourish embossing folder. Added a piece embossed with a Cuttlebug distressed stripes folder at the top. The little charm tag is cut with the Waltzingmouse Stamps Opera Tags Spellbinders and stamped using the coordinating stamp set. Added the "Sow Early" image from the Vintage Garden-Seed Packet set to the center.
Now for a close up of the seed card. I stamped the Chicken Wire background in Pebble ink in the background before stamping the seed packet and carnation. When I was all done distressing and shading, I wanted to add some sparkle to the carnation to keep this card nice and girly :)!
Now for news...
I noticed at the Waltzingmouse Stamps Store that some more items are back in stock! They are Festive Foliage, A Cottage Home, A Cottage Christmas, and Big Blooms-Poinsettias! Just in time for the Christmas season, yay!
New note!: I think I made a bit of a mistake about the sneak peeks going up on October 22nd! Claire did mention today that she will provide some details about the November release tomorrow...October 24th! So stay tuned to her blog!!
