CCMC Summer Week 4!

I'm breaking out a new stamp set today for our new color challenge at Create with Connie & Mary. for our last Saturday of our Summer Collection.

Here are the colors that we received to play with:

This is one of the first stamp sets I purchased when the new catalog debuted on June 1st and I had not inked it yet. The images are beautiful:

I wanted to make the bird look like it was coming in for a safe landing:

I used the Sahara Sand Ink first for the bird, inked the stamp, stamped on a piece of scrap paper and then stamped the "motion" repeatedly without reinking. I then added the bird over the motion using Lost Lagoon Ink. For my branches I colored the flowers as blueberries as it is blueberry season here in Maine. My blueberries are almost ready for picking!

For those of your that subscribed to our Summer Collection...thank you! And for those of you that haven't, you can still purchase and view all four weeks! Visit Create with Connie & Mary if you would like to see what we are all about. And be on the lookout as we will have a new subscription coming soon near you!
