Waltzing Mouse Stamps Blog Party - 17.02.2012

Hello Friends!  It's time for this month's WMS Blog Party, and the theme is Looking forward to Spring.  Springtime brings to mind beautiful blooms and it's a great time to get out the camera.

For my card, I used my all-time favourite set of Waltzing Mouse stamps, Roses In Bloom.  I love roses and it's great to be able to colour the rose in any shade I like.  I used Copic Markers for the rose (Petals - R01, R20, R22 ; Flower centre - E00, E02, YR23, E15).


Just underneath the rose, is a stamp from the set Very Vintage Labels 18, I stamped it with Memento Rhubarb Stalk, and cut it out with Labels 18.  I also stamped the grid background stamp from the set Off Beat Backgrounds in Memento Angel Pink just for some added texture.

Here's the card:

The sentiment is from Eat Cake, another favourite set of mine, heat embossed in white. The sentiment was stamped in the same polka dot brown & pink paper and placed a little off to the left for some interest but not to take the eye away from the rose focal image.  I added a lace trim, an aqua ribbon & some pearls to finish off the card.


I hope you like the card.  Please click here for more WMS Inspiration and Fabulous creations.

Thanks for visiting me. Enjoy the Blog Party!!
