LOC New Release Sneak Peek #1

I am excited today to be sharing with you my first Sneak Peek of the Layers of Color New Release Stamps designed by our new illustrator, the amazing  Nina Brackett and LOC Owner and Artist, Laura. The Designers will be showing off Sneak Peeks this week and this will be building up to a 

 New Release Love Blog Hop

on January 17
Grab a pretty LOC badge for your blog here!

I have used the sentiment from the Happy Wishes art stamp set  illustrated by Nina Brackett I love this set, it is full of sentiments that can be mixed and I love the different fonts - they are divine!

I don't often use sentiments, choosing to keep my cards generic, so they can be used for  any occasion - but I can see that will be changing....

A close up of the fonts

and the flowers from the Merci Bouqiet art stamp set - a must have in my opinion!

I added a butterfly from the Butterfly Collector art stamp set - the ink is Tsukineko's Versafine Spanish Moss - I am in love with the Versafine range - they are particularly suited to detailed images - thank you Laura for your recommendation - I am hooked!
