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

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 May 6 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on May 7 on her Blog. On the first & third Wednesdays of every month, we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop! The Special this month is the Petunias stamp – 50% off! 

This is also for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC648) & THIS was my inspiration.

To make my card, I used a background I made quite a while ago. It’s a technique I learned around 1999 (yikes!). Easy & fun to do. All you need is white glossy or semi-glossy card stock (it needs to have a coated surface) & art tissue that bleeds when wet. Not all tissue paper will do this, so check what you have first. I have some Spectra Art tissue & I know it bleeds so that’s what I used. Pick some colors you like but be aware that contrasting colors (like red & green) will make brown. Tear some pieces & place them on your card stock then mist it w/ water. Wait a minute or two then remove the tissue & let it dry. You want to leave the tissue on long enough to bleed the color onto the c/s but not long enough to dry there, or it will stick. 

After it dried, I placed it into my Misti & stamped the mailbox image on top. I wanted it a bit darker so I coated it w/ black embossing powder & heated. I used a white Posca paint pen to add the white dots to the flowers & border around it.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Please be sure to comment on all the blogs..it is much appreciated & also increases your chances of winning!
