Waltzingmouse Release Blog Waltz!

Good afternoon and welcome to our March Release! We will have a prize - which will be a stamp set of your choice from Waltzingmouse Stamps - drawn from one of the designer's blogs - so make sure you leave a little love at the end of this post!

If you are coming from Sandie's blog you have come to the right place! If you came by chance - thank you so kindly for visiting - and you might want to start at Claire's blog so you don't miss a wonderful thang! (purposefully spelled wrong hah!)

We were invited to show our favorite card this release for our waltz, so here it is!


I decided to use the boot stamp from Back in the Saddle and make it a feminine card by stamping in Hibiscus Burst. 

My layout is from this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge - with a bit of lace and lush added!



You can see where I used the "kissing" technique on my boots. First I stamped the boots in Hibiscus Burst ink and then, using one of the teeny doo-dads from Compliments of the Season, I stamped right into the ink on the stamp itself, and then stamped onto the cardstock.  LOVE the look!



Now you  need to follow along the waltz and your next stop is the fabulous Sarah Martina Parker!!
