I am super-duper excited about this month's release! There is so much to choose from and such a wide variety of styles and designs. There really is something for every design style at Sweet 'n Sassy!
My card is showing off what is sure to be a favorite stamp set; Wildflowers. I adore the sketched look of the image; how it almost looks like something that has been hand drawn (ok, in reality it has been hand drawn, just not by me!) right on to my card. And I love the solid image design, perfect for those sunset image cards, one of which I'll be sharing later in the week.
To create my card, I stamped the image once in Crushed Olive Distress Ink and then stamped it again on top of pre-cut squares (I started with six squares). The second time I stamped the image, I used the rock 'n roll technique to add a bit of orange to the edges of the flowers. I opted to use only four of the squares, which are attached with foam tape, so that you could see both images. It's a little like the spotlight technique, only with more color and areas spotlighted. No embellies for this card, I wanted this pretty image to be front and center! I simply added one of the sentiments, stamped in black, to the bottom corner, slightly overlapping the flower stamp.
Be sure to continue checking back on the SNSS stamp blog and the other DT blogs for many more sneak peeks! I'll be back on Friday with another peek at a new set!!
