Waltzingmouse July Blog Waltz
Okay, hopefully if this works, you will only be able to see this post after 8 a.m. on Saturday 17th July - if not, I'm just babbling to myself again!
Well the theme for this month's Waltz is blue & green, I've had these multicolour stamp pads from Versacolour for years, I bought them because I liked the colours but had no idea what to do with them - boy do I wish I'd played with them properly long ago!. I used Rainforest and Icicle for this and stamped along the lovely zig zag pattern from offbeat backgrounds to get the beautiful watery background (though the lime green at the end certainly heats it up a bit!). I stamped the sentiment from Afternoon Tea Sentiments using the dark blue end of the Icicle ink pad and then clear embossed - I wanted to shape the sentiment so that it looks like the tag you get on the end of fancy flavoured tea bags (hope it worked).
Definitely think this card carries on the simple theme that seems to be developing - hope it's not too simple?
Anyway, looking forward to Waltzing tomorrow, though by the time I've seen everyone elses lovely creations, my credit card may not be so happy, but we 'must have' our stamps.
