Hi everyone, and welcome back to the blog. Barbara here with some more stamping fun. Well, another month is almost over, and Fall is upon us, although the 90˚ temperatures here would not give any indication of that happening. But, happen it will. In the meantime, I still have these beautiful colors in my mind's eye, and I could not be more pleased with how this sweet card turned out.
Sin City Stamps: Rosette Hearts
For the Love of Butterflies
Cardstock: Aqua, Dusty Pink

Cut specialty stamping paper to 4-1/4" x 5-1/2". Spray with the Creme de Rouge. Allow to dry. Stamp and emboss rosette hearts background with Versamark and clear embossing powder. Mist with Tuscan Sun and Dragonfly. Allow to dry.
For The Love of Butterflies set using Gold Encore ink.
I stamped these onto a scrap of cloudy vellum, cut them out, and then added a spritz of Dragonfly mist. This gave that pretty blue color between the gold embossing. And because I stamped onto vellum, the color shows off beautifully when light passes through the wings. I don't think it will show up in the photos, but it really is a pretty effect for such tiny images.
I hope I have inspired you to try some background stamps with your color mists and see what beautiful "prints" you, too, can create. In addition to Terri Sproul, we have a couple of new stamp designers, Pam Bray and Peg Rounds, who are coming up with some beautiful images for us to play with. So check out the Sin City Stamps online store for the latest stamp releases. And while you are there, check out the Sin City Stamps blog to see how the DT is using these stamps as they are released.
Oh, and don't forget to mark your calendars for our Fall/Halloween Blog Hop on the 12th of October. There will be fun, inspiration, and giveaways. I hope you will join us then.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and as always, have a wonderful weekend, and make some time for stamping.
