SSS143 Beloved


I had these papers on my table from last night's crafting session, and I loved this color combo so much, I decided to use these again. I'm using a new Sweet Stop sketch (#143) with the same Color Throwdown challenge (#176) that I used yesterday. This great color combo is Chocolate Chip, Kraft, Pool Party, and Rose Red.

I pulled out this gorgeous Small Beloved Carnation stamp from I Brake for Stamps and used the Tissued Color technique (from Technique Junkies) on it. This is a great way to color collage stamps without having to use markers. I sponged the edges with some Kraft ink for that vintage look.

I know you're going to want this gorgeous collage stamp, so please use this code - SAVE10HOLLY - when you go shopping at I Brake for Stamps. This will save you 10% off your entire order, so fill up your cart with stamps, ink pads, 6x6 paper pads, Wild Orchid flowers, and Creative Inspirations Paints. You will have a great time with your new toys! :-)
