More Mums

I love the new Elegant Mums Background. I think it has so much potential for coloring. I hope you saw the post this week for the Blog Hop, where I showed one way to use this stamp, along with so many other of the April Releases.

There is a little story about the image above. Every time I make a new stamp, I ink the first image that comes out of the rubber stamp "oven" vulcanizer). When I made the April stamps, I used a Denim Blue Distress Ink pad, because it was close at hand and convenient. I stamped all the images, set aside the paper (VERY satisfied with the results), and kept "ccoking."

Just a day or so ago, I came across that sheet and decided to use some of those initial images. The image above was one of them - the first image from the first stamp off the line.

All I did to finish this image was to color it with Distress Markers.   Its very easy to color -- and I can't wait to use it with other color schemes!

The sentiment is an older image called Afraid to Do.

Remember that the April Release Stamps are on sale through Friday, April8th. Get yours today!

The blue background is awesome. Your colour combination makes this stamp pop right out.

That's a great story, Pat. And great card! I bought this stamp. I think it looks more Asian than the Asian Mum stamp, it must be the Elegance. lol xoxo
