Feb SOTM Blog Hop: A Happy Hello

Welcome to the stamp of the month blog hop.  Once again, you will be treated to a gallery of artwork presented by a talented group of Close to My Heart Consultants.  If you are coming from Krista's blog, you are right on track to complete this loop of artwork.  After visiting my blog, you will travel on to Shalana's blog.  Don't forget to leave a little comment here and there along the way.  We love to hear what you think!

Now, lets get started.

This month I tried a "water color" technique.  I stamped the images in the ink and then, holding the stamp with the ink facing up,  I used the water spritzer to spray a light mist of water into the air and "caught it" on the stamp.  Then I stamped it on the paper.  Clear as mud?  to see a larger image, click on the photo.

I was looking for a bit more of a water color look but I do like how it turned out.  Although this stamp set has a variety of floral images, I was drawn to the smaller, more willowy look of wildflowers.  After looking at my completed card, I can't wait to re-create it in blues like bachelor buttons.  What flowers does this set remind you of?

And finally, I added a couple of June Bug puffies.  I just can't get enough of these cute little embellishments.  So sweet. 

 Now, don't forget to hop on over to Shalana's and see her artwork.

If you would like to purchase the stamp of the month, contact your CTMH consultant or me!  This set will be available through Feb 28th so make sure you don't delay.

The products I used to create my card are shown below.  If you would like more information about my water color technique or would like to see my bachelor buttons, contact me.

Happy stamping,
