How's it going?
I'm here today with a card that has me dreaming of summer....
I'm LOVING the new sets released by Market Street Stamps this month!
All of the new sets are available NOW- run over and check them out!
Here's my card:
Ok- let's start with the background set- Nautical Stripe. It is beyond PERFECT, people. I love it to pieces... I stamped the background on Rustic Cream cardstock with Navy A Muse Studio ink. Then, while it was still a little wet, I sprinkled some Gold Filigree Detail Embossing Powder over it. I shook off any excess and heated it. What I got was a very delicate gold accent on my background! I really like how it came out!
I knew when I saw that mermaid in the Dreaming of the Sea set that I wanted to emboss her tail and make her all sparkly! I heat embossed the tail on a separate sheet of cardstock and cut it out. Then, I stamped the mermaid on Rustic Cream cardstock, colored her body and hair with Copics, and paper pieced her tail into place!
I love how soft and pliable these stamps are! I curved the sentiment "dreaming of the Sea" to match the curve of the mermaid tail!
Have you seen the new Market Street Stamps blog?! You should definitely run over and check it out- it's absolutely BEAUTIFUL!
