Layers of Color Sneak Peek


Hope you're having a nice weekend. It's been chilly here, so I've been inside stamping and doing some house cleaning. Not a bad weekend!

Today I have a card to share, which is a sneak peek at a couple new Layers of Color stamp sets! Layers of Color has a big Autumn release planned for next weekend but in the mean time, the LOC designers will be sharing some artwork using the new stamps as a way to give you a preview. And right now, Layers of Color is celebrating with a big release party complete with awesome prizes and free digi party favors. Head on over to the LOC blog now to enter for your chance to win! And while you're there you can download your free digital image!

Here is my sneak peek using the new stamp sets Rise and Shine and Merci Bouquet. I chose to use these three adorable chick stamps for my main image and then I used the chicken wire stamp to create a background page and I added a couple flowers to soften the chicken wire and add some color.

My images were colored with watercolor crayons and a paintbrush. I was going for a vintage/country feel, so I distressed all the edges with a pair of scissors. The papers are Riding Hood Red and Black cardstock with K and Company printed red paper. I've embellished with Prima flowers, buttons, ribbon, brads, hemp twine, and hand made flowers.

Thanks for dropping by today. I'm off to make a couple more cards. Hope you have a great day! Be sure to check out the rest of the Layers of Color party details and enter for your chance to win some free stamps! Hope to see you at the party next weekend!
