An Easter Waltz

Welcome to the friends of Waltzingmouse blog Waltz. On the 17th of each month everyone is invited to join in on the fun!! The theme this month is Easter. For more information, head on over to the Waltzingmouse Forum, and check out how you can win a Waltzingmouse stamp set of your choice.

Our Easter Break has officially begun, and what a way to start off vacation!! A Waltz with Waltzingmouse Stamps.

I decided I wanted a cross as my focal point. So, first, I made a background by stamping one of the banners from the Waltzingmouse Vintage Banners set with Papaya Cream Pigment ink (ColorBox). I love the softness of this image and how the top of the banner looks like a ribbon going down the side when interlocking each banner. For the cross, I used a variety of Spellbinders dies: Fancy Tags 2, Parisian Motifs, and the Cross Collection. They're layered with Dimensional tape with a lot sparkle added. Unfortunately my photography skills are lacking. So click on the photos to see it better. :)



The sentiment at the top is from the WMS Spring Baskets set, and is framed with a Spellbinders Ribbon Banner.



That's it for me. :)
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a fabulous week!!
Happy Stamping my friends!!

LaurieJ said...

Absolutely beautiful card. So much detail! I love how you created the background.

Helen L said...

WOW! That is an amazing card!! I love the background made of the banners (clever girl!) I have two questions for you: what is the name of that particular border punch (it's amazing: looks celtic), and what part of Calif are you in? I'm in Healdsburg: if you weren't too far away it might be fun to meet up and stamp together some day. My stamping buddies moved away 5 years ago, and stamping isn't half as fun without friends!!
