Here today waltzing along with the July Friends Of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz.
This month, Claire challenged all of her stamping friends to create a project of any type based on the theme: colors of summer...using blue & green (any shade our little hearts desire! :) I combined 2 Waltzingmouse Stamp sets to play with: Afternoon Tea Sentiments and Victorian Frippery & this is what I came up with:The decorative lace image & the Merci sentiment are both from the Victorian Frippery set & the beautiful cluster of flowers is from the Afternoon Tea Sentiments set. Close up you can see how I paper pieced an additional layer to the upper-most flower to add a lil' dimension. After stamping & coloring the image, I used a Spellbinders™ Nestabilites® S4-110 Classic Ovals LG die template to cut/emboss the image, then layered it on top of a label made using a Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® S4-246 Labels Eleven die template. Topped it off with a few pearls :)
Don't these Copic markers look so pretty together? They remind me of the Dreamy Caribbean Waters - I can almost hear the waves crashing!!!
That's it for me today - off waltzing I will go! Thanks so much for looking! Have a great weekend!
