Mikey's Pleasures!


You have all been wondering if Hanna Stamps would be bringing out a male to their range ... well let me introduce you to Mikey! This will be one of the 5 sets that will be released this Friday 14th March by Hanna Stamps. This is a great set to own to create cards for the men in our lifes!

These are unusual colors for me to use together but I wanted to incorporate this week's color challenge that is running in the Hanna Stamps Member forum over at SCS..... the colors we had to use were more mustard, ballet blue and garden green.

The background I used for the wall is just done by scrunching up a tissue so you have some texture .... then inking it using your stamp pad and dabbing it over the area you want the background ... I do suggest if you try this that you first stamp off a little on scrap paper ... you can always add more color but if you go direct to your card and it is too dark it is too late to remove it .... kwim!

Oh btw ... Kristi is offering a great specials this week ... for more details check out Kristi's blog ...
also check out while you are there the copic markers that she is selling!
