Welcome to the June #1 Blog Hop for Serendipity Stamps!

If you arrived here from Miriam’s blog, you’re in the right place..if not, you may want to head over there first.

The Prize – One $20 gift code will go to one random commenter from the blogs. So be sure  to visit all the blogs because you don’t know which one the winner will be drawn from. You have through Sunday June 11 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on June 12 on her Blog.  Each month a different image is 50% off. This month- it’s the Provence Window! On the first & third Wednesdays of every month., we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop!

For my water color cards today, I came across some Brusho backgrounds I made who knows how long ago.  I couldn’t decide if I liked the turquoise/blue bg or the rainbow bg more…so I used both!  On this  turq/blue one, I put the Mill image into my Misti and stamped it 2 or 3 times w/ Versafne (to get good coverage). I added just a few highlights here & there w/ a white gel pen then added the greeting below it. It’s edged w/ a black marker, then attached to a turq layer & a very narrow black layer.  

Here’s the inside. The greeting was shadow stamped w/ the blue ink slightly offset from the black.


On the rainbow version, I went thru the same repetitive stamping as the first one but ended up heat embossing it w/ black powder anyway. This unknown water color paper is soooo textured it made stamping a line image a little more difficult.

I die cut a narrow black square frame for it & stamped the greeting on a leftover piece of the background. A dot border was embossed on the frame between the image & the greeting.

Here’s the inside.

Please be sure to comment on all the DT Blogs..it will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!
