Waltzingmouse May Blog Waltz


Welcome to another Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz! The design team is playing along today, too, and we have a little something up our sleeves. As you waltz along, look very closely at each photo, for we've hidden little teacups in some of them. Count them up and post your guess in the Waltzingmouse forum for a chance to win fabulous prizes (Waltzingmouse stamps)!

This month the theme is birthdays, something my family is experiencing a lot of these days! I decided to go with something a bit different and used Asian Gardens to create a soft, but contemporary card:



I can't get enough of pink and aqua, which worked perfectly for this card. I used my Copics to add a "sky" and cut out a few of the blossoms to make it a bit more realistic looking. It's hard to tell, but I used a white paint pen and my Stardust glitter pen to add a little something special to the blossoms themselves:


Thanks for stopping by! I'm off to waltz along with you all and enjoy some creative ingenuity! Have a great day and keep your eyes open for those little teacups!
