So Breezy

This is my third post of the day, please click here to see my post for CAS-ual Friday and Hero Arts contest and click here to see my post for February Krafty Peeks Day 5. Or you can scroll down to see all three of my posts. Thanks! =)

Hello ~ hello ~~ Thanks for those who that are still with me. This is a crazy release week and I truly appreciate to all that stopped by! =) Today is the first day of stamp highlight over at Mama Elephant and we are showcasing the beautiful So Breezy set.


If you are tired of winter like me, then this is a stamp set that will brighten up your day. I love the children's silhouettes in this set, they are so versatile and wonderful to work with if you are not a colorer.


I stamped sunshine repeatedly with three different shades of yellow/orange before stamping the boy silhouette. Some Japanese washi tapes were used to ground the boy. =)


Here is a slight variation of my first card, but in a watercolor style. It is not my favorite, but I thought that I'd share. =)

That's all for today. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members created using this new set. Here are the links:


Have fun and hope you have a happy day! =)

These are fabulous! I especially love the first one! What a great way to use a silhouette image. I always struggle with those.
