Welcome to the Waltzingmouse Stamps March release day blog waltz!! You should have arrived here from Becca's blog. Visit Claire's Blog for the full list of participants.Today three fabulous new sets are being released - A Good Egg, Folk Art Labels No.25 and Folk Art Medallions. I used the new Folk Art Medallions and the previously released Say it Loud on my first card.
I embossed the medallion in white onto some lime green cardstock. Then I stamped some of the individual flowers and leaves and fussy cut them out. I propped them up on some foam pads for dimension. For my next card I had some fun with the chalkboard technique using A Good Egg, Folk Art Medallion and a couple of sentiments from the previously released Spring Baskets.
I used a white pencil to draw the lines and to draw around some of the details. I softened the look by rubbing a white pigment ink pad randomly over the surface!
I embossed everything in white first then added some subtle color using blending chalks! I love adding a bit of color the black and white can be a bit stark sometimes. Next up on the hop is the creative Kelly! Again if you get lost you can just go back to Claire's blog for the full list of participants!
