Rescue Remedies

Well, I had a little parcel in the post that made me brave the pouring rain and pop out to my Studio! I have become the proud owner of some Waltzing Mouse stamps. I first discovered them about a year ago and then got distracted by Tim Holtz and Wendy Vecchi - anyway I finally placed and order and they came today! They are really fabulous! 
I noticed on their blog that they have a challenge where you are given a sketch to work from. I have never worked from a sketch before but in the spirit of giving the stamps their first outing I thought I'd play along! I stuck pretty faithfully to the sketch and used the Rescue Remedies set, kraft card and inks (Gathered Twigs and Black Soot Distress Inks and Jet Black Archival Ink).
After I stamped out each label I distressed the edges before adding ink. The rosette was die cut using Tim Holtz's Mini Paper Rosette die and layered. I used both of the circles that are cut with the die and using two of the smaller stamps in the set - that made five in total! I used two Wendy Vecchi stamps for the background (from Dreams of Art and Seriously Art). I enjoyed my first foray with my new stamps - I have grand plans for Father's Day cards - and enjoyed working to my first sketch! Thank you for sharing my adventures!

I LOVE waltzing mouse stamps I just never have time to play with them. Great selection I've always fancied the labels but wasn't sure what I'd do with them. Black and kraft were just supposed to be together, hugs Erika.
