Whimsy Stamps sneak peak: Love Letter Seals + Music BG

Hello everyone!  It's almost that time again!

Yep, it's almost time for another Whimsy Stamps rubber release.  In fact, it's only a day away :)  Today I'm sharing a sneak peak of two new designs releasing tomorrow. One is called the Love Letter Seals sentiments and the other is a Music Notes background stamp.  Both are being added to the Sentiments Collection at Whimsy Stamps, along with three fantastic new images from Crissy Armstrong and two new adorable images from Meljen's Designs.

For this card, I've used some elements that remind me of the gold palaces of Egypt or maybe even Rome.  I just wanted to go for something really romantic and lavish.  I've used papers from the BasicGrey Curio 6x6 Paper Pad, which is definitely THE paper pad to use if you want to create something romantic.  I've again used some  Viva Decor Pearl Pens; this time I've used Gold.  These pearl pens are really becoming a use-on-all-my-cards supply :)

No coloring for me this time!  Instead I painted the edges of the paper with some Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint in Tarnished Brass. I tried to be messy with it, but it got too messy, and I feel like I ended up painting most of the papers.  Oh well!  I'm naturally left-brained so randomness is difficult for me.

Well, that's it for me today!  Make sure to come back tomorrow to join us for the new release!
