Introducing Mitzi Wiuff!

Oh how excited I am to be part of this release!  What an AMAZING artist!

Okay....gotta settle down a bit and get the 'business' part of this release done...first, WELCOME to a fantastic blog hop brought to you by Queen Kat Stamps to introduce a new stamp designer Mitzi Wiuff!  You should have stopped here by the way of the official Queen Kat Designs Blog, if not, go back and make sure you get the full list of blogs for today, and to find out more about Mitzi!

Now....I got the honor to design with Dreaming on Aquamarine Tides stamp!  She is beautiful and unlike any stamp I've designed with!

Here are two cards I made with this amazing stamp:

 I decided I wanted to just use my inks and do some 'smudging' with them! (with the aid of some Tim Holtz tools/inks of course!)  I simply inked my blending tool with several different colors of ink...with circular motions....I worked from the inside colors to the outside...I LOVED the much that I did it on this card also!

Both of these cards are so easy, yet the look is priceless!

Now, don't you want to see more of the new stamps?  I know I'm ready to see them!  So let's hop on over to Chris' place and see what awesome design she got to play with!  Then after the hop you HAVE to stop by the store and pick up some of these stamps...but I warn will want them ALL!!

See you all soon!

This week we were challenged to try the Brick Wall Technique!  If you have not seen this it is awesome!  I don't think I did it justice! But here it is:

I used Street Lamp I stamp from our Eclectic Reasons line!  One of my absolute favorite lines!  

This is such an awesome technique to try!  Do a google search and watch some videos!  You'll be hooked!
