Mark's Finest Papers & Stamps Special Feature!

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a good weekend and are off to a good start to the week!  This week is Mark's Finest Papers & Stamps a Heinrich Co. blog hop week.  I will have a post every day this week so I hope you will stop by and leave a comment for your chance to win a new release!

 The special stamp set this month is: Marsh Silhouettes

The mini stamp set we have for you this month is: Lilly of the Valley

I have been inspired lately by several talented artists that work magic with mixed media as well as the splitcoaststampers mix-ability challenges.  I just had to give it a try when I saw "Marsh Silhouettes" stamps set! This was just a little experiment but it didn't turn out half bad for a first try.  I created the card by using Gesso resist technique, water coloring with reinkers, stamping and distressing.

My second card can be used for wedding or Anniversary.
