Way to Go - WMS Previews Day 2

This is a scheduled post.


Today I have another preview of the two new sets being released at WMS this month, He's a Free Spirit and Free Spirit Sentiments.

I love today's card!

I started with a 4-inch square of white cardstock. I stamped the circle cluster, which is such a cool image, and embossed it with white embossing powder. Then I went back and added distress inks to create the colored background. Even contrasting colors of these inks blend well, they are really fun to use. I combined phrases for my sentiment ('Wow!' and 'Way to Go' are separate stamps) and adhered it with foam tape.

Retro and graphic - just think of all the different colors you could create this in!

Check the WMS Blog for more info about today's previews.
