TCM:: August Blog Hop



Welcome to the August Release Blog Hop for the The Craft's Meow, if you are following the hop you should have arrived from Jinny's Blog. Doesn't she always have the most beautiful projects?!

The Craft's meow

My twin sister featured hydrangeas in her wedding, and a few of the stamps in Folk Art Blooms reminded me of the beautiful flowers. I inked the image and then spritzed with water before stamping onto a card base. I used a mixture of blues, purples and teals. I finished the card with a sentiment from Cottage Garden and added some more May Arts Silk Ribbon and Burlap String again!

Your next stop on the hop is Lin, and please check out The Craft's Meow as well for prize details!
