New In-Colour Challenge

This morning just before I left for work a Postie knocked on my front door and had my pre-order for the new Annual Catalogue.  I had time to open the box, hug my new catalogue, and then head off to work!  Talk about torture.  I was so excited to try the new In-Colours and in the new style of ink pad too, so how perfect is the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge this week - to use all of the new in-colours.  I went in search of a sketch and settled on the Mojo Monday challenge, I figured all the layers would be perfect for the number of colours I wanted to add.

For the first time ever I now qualify for a Title Bundle - a special bundle of coordinating products that I got at a 20% discount because I promoted with Stampin' Up! the bundle this year included this cute set Betsy's Blossoms and so I was itching to ink it up.  I like the layers and the mix of stamps on this card, it certainly isn't "clean and simple" like my last card more like "bright and busy" lol.  I stamped the bird image twice, once in the new Midnight Muse, and once in VersaMark on the Summer Starfruit and then embossed with white embossing powder.  I cut the wings from the second bird and lined up on the first image, then popped the bird up on Dimensionals.  The sentiment is from Loving Thoughts, I am so glad this set is continuing in the new Annual catalogue this year.

Happy Stamping
