Serendipity Stamps August Blog Hop



Welcome to the hop!
 We have some beautiful new stamps and unique dies that I think you are going to love.



 As soon as this die came in the mail I made this card using some water colored paper I already made.
I cut and adhered two layers of 4 x by 5 x 1/4 card stock and placed it over the water colored paper. 
There are so many ways to use this beautiful die. 



I absolutely LOVE this rooster stamp! It was so relaxing coloring it in. Of course I had to add some Glossy Accents to give it a bit of dimension I placed the colored image over watercolor paper. Yep no water coloring on the wc paper :)

  17. Hot air balloons, drifting along the wind currents, make me smile; not sure if its their colours or the sense of freedom they evoke, but they're definitely magical. Your card leaves the same impression...love it! As for Mr. Rooster - he certainly has a right to crow, strutting his fancy, shimmery feathers! My mother-in-law collects roosters so a card with him on it would be more than welcomed! He's a charmer, for sure!
