Waltzingmouse Stamps March Release Previews, Day 3

I am sure that you have been hopping along today, enjoying every gorgeous detail of the Folk Art Medallion stamp set!  Claire will be releasing it at Waltzingmouse Stamps tomorrow, Friday March 8th along with the 2 other new sets, Folk Art Labels No. 25 and A Good Egg.

Today I am focusing on the large medallion in the set.  But let me tell you... this large stamp set is packed with elements which allow you to make multicolored and patterned medallions, as well as unique backgrounds!

I stamped the medallion using VersaMark ink and then heat embossed it with white powder on kraft paper.  It is cut out with the largest die in the Lacey Circles Nestabilities set.  Stamped some pastel flowers in orange, aqua blue, and lavender, and added some Liquid Pearls.


The card base was cut with Spellbinders Grand Labels 11 Nestabilities.  Made a little tag with images from Folk Art Medallion cut with the Small Labels Nestabilities.


Up next is a simple one layer tag (gasp!!) using the Faux Tearing Technique.  It's basically masking...but you sponge and stamp around a piece of paper with a torn edge...


I sponged Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass around the torn paper and then stamped the medallion using darker blue and red inks.  


Then I removed the mask and added the pretty sentiment along the bottom.  I am excited to try more medallion tags with this technique in lots of different color schemes!

I'll bet these ladies are as excited about Folk Art Medallion as I am!  Off you go to see some lovely samples!

Both your card and tag are wonderful. I really love your card. The soft colors and pretty edge on the card really set off the medallion and die cutting it makes it extravpretty!
