Just for you - Nur für Dich

Hi there,

the Karten-Kunst Shop has released the new Blümchen-Meer stamp set and today and on the next two Mondays I would like to show you my creations using this fabulous set:


  • stamp some flowers from the Karten-Kunst Blümchen-Meer set with Distress Inks (Abandoned Coral, Shabby Shutters, Spiced Marmalade, Crushed Olive) onto a stitched panel of watercolor paper - mist the inked stamp with water from your Mini Mister before stamping in order to achieve a watercolor look
  • stamp the sentiment from the same set with Versafine (Vintage Sepia)
  • adhere the panel to a kraft cardbase

Thanks for stopping by.

Yours,
