Stampin' Sisters


Stopping by really quick today (so busy, does your life ever get like that?) to let you know that The Craft's Meow is sponsoring the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge: Use Bright Colors (with no neutrals). I stamped the blooms from Hope Blooms onto blue paper with blue ink, colored the blooms with a dry brush and ink and then splattered a mix of the same color ink with water over the card. I finished with a sentiment from God's Blessings and a bow tied with May Arts Crinkle Ribbon. I hope you get a chance to play along, because the prize is a stamp set of your choice from The Craft's Meow!
