Are you ready for a sneak peek?

Good Tuesday morning my friends!!! Today is the first day of the sneak peeks we will be giving you for Thursday's release of the August stamp line over at Innovative Stamp Creations. So, for today's peek I have a card I made using the Ganzia/African Daisy. We were given some Adirondack markers to color this wonderful flower in a watercolor technique. I also used some really cool Making Memories paper which is called Ledger. It really looks like a sheet of paper from a notepad but thicker. To give it a little more interest I ran it through my Cuttlebug with the Textile embossing folder and then ran a Chalk Box ink spot over it in Bisque and Dark Brown. To make the Ganzia flower pop I cut a mat of SU Certainly Celery and 7 Gypsies Cream cs with my Nesties Labels 4 dies. To stay within the theme of distressing I also distressed the edges of those mats in Chalk Box Creamy Brown, Chestnut Roan. The main image, the Ganzia flower, was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and as mentioned colored in a watercolor technique using Adirondack Markers in Butterscotch, Meadow, Terra Cotta and Currant. The sentiment, here "God Bless" was also stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa. To top it off I gave the Certainly Celery layer a little more interest by adding some mini 7 Gypsies brads.

So, with no further delay, here is my peek for today

Paper: SU Certainly Celery, Making Memories Ledger DP, 7 Gypsies cream colored cs

Stamps: Ganzia/African Daisy

Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Chalk Box Creamy Brown, Dark Brown, Chestnut Roan, Bisque

Accessories: Cuttlebug embossing folder Textile, Nesties Labels 4, Adirondack Markers Butterscotch, Meadow, Terra Cotta, Currant, 7 Gypsies mini brads in dark brown

So, do you like what you see? Well, you will have to wait just a few more days and to make it more interesting you will be getting a special discount code to make it a little more affordable for you ;P.

This is it for today, but I will be back tomorrow with another peek.
