Love the new shimmer!

I'm loving the five new colors in the Nuance watercolor powders from Magenta. I've posted a card previously using the new colors, and I've made another card using only the new colors and one of the new Magenta stamp designs. My cousin, who is like a sister to me, celebrated her birthday the other day; unfortunately, she was quite under the weather and is just coming back to life. I hope this will brighten her day.

Stamped with VersaMark and embossed with gold embossing powder. Colored in with the Nuance watercolor powders. Gently shook small amount of the Mango Tango and Rosebud on the bottom flower; used Rosebud and Wisteria on the upper flower and buds. For the leaves, I used my craft sheet to make mixture of Spring Green and Aquamarine for the larger leaves, and used only Spring Green for the smaller leaves.

Die cut a rectangular frame to go over stamped panel and adhered together with score tape. Both were then attached to the A2 base card.

Birthday sentiment was stamped with VersaMark on the same card stock as the frame and embossed. Die cut with small label die. Droplets added.

Penny Ward has made the honeycomb die from Memory Box something fun to work with. She adheres fun foam to the card stock that she has colored, and then uses the honeycomb die without separating the individual honeycombs. I really like the dimensional effect it gives to the card.

Who doesn't love Mail Art! It's probably the most ignored piece of art we can make and fail to create. When you receive a piece of mail inside an artsy envelope, isn't that the one you can't wait to open first? I'd love to receive this envelope that is featured on Viva Las Vegas' blog site.

Mail Art, Michele Kosciolek

The envelope is totally handmade from a letter-size piece of card stock. Check it out by clicking on this link to the Viva Las Vegas Stamps' blog site:

Thank you for stopping in. I'm looking forward to seeing you again soon. Have a totally terrific Tuesday!
