Waltzingmouse Fanatic
I’m a big fan of Waltzingmouse Stamps, and I have been meaning to join the Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge ever since they got started. Their first challenge in this new year is a color challenge, which I combined with this week’s sketch challenge on SCS (SC469).

Even though WMS stamps are clear, I still like using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to try and place all images on the paper just right. The circle image on the sentiment panel was stamped on a scalloped circle die-cut. Afterwards I used a brown marker to color the tips of the scallops that were still showing the tan card stock, and I also went around the edge of the die-cut for a cleaner finish.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Vera, I can’t believe you colored each scallop, if I read it right. That is beautiful and quite amazing!
