HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!!!

WOW!!! Looking back at the year past I can say "WOW what a year!"...it has been a wonderful year for me :) Mostly due in part to this hobby that we all share...I have met the most special crafters both in person, and on various sites and blogs. It is through this that I feel my life has been greatly enriched...so THANK YOU ALL!!

I am so EXCITED to share that Sally Traidman picked me as her choice for !!!Win A Day on the Hero Arts Blog!!! How amazing is this, I am so honored to be chosen and share the week with my fellow Hero Arts friends: Jenn, Kathy, Vanessa, Fika and Alice. It will occur sometime in February I believe.

Last night I finally had some time to play and put together these two very similar cards using the beautiful Cling stamp CG140 Poppy Background by Hero Arts:



I used Tim Holtz Distress inks for both backgrounds; the first card I spritz the ink before stamping and the second card I clear embossed the inks. Poppies were coloured in with my Copics.

Thanks for peeking!! Wishing you and your loved ones all the best for the New Year 2010!!!!

Hugs,
Tracey

Did you have to mask the flowers before stamping the green? It doesn't show thru the coloring on the flowers. I just got this stamp but didn't realize it was a "negative" image!
