W&W Hello and a giveaway!!

Welcome to my week of Winnie and Walter.  I am excited to be posting 3 days with week, to share the new stamps from this latest release!  Hope you enjoy!  Oh and stay tuned for a giveaway at the bottom of this post.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
So, I am not generally "technique-y".  But I see all these fun techniques, and even though they scare mer, I want to try!  So I got brave with a little mister recently and came up with this....

These fabulous new chevron from Winnie & Walter make me SO happy.  The set is called V for CheVron.  Fun, huh?  So I used PTI's Enchanted Evening, Aqua Mist, Classic Kraft and Berry Sorbet for the background.  Each time, I inked the stamp up with Versamark first, then the ink color and then I added in a light mist of water.  I stamped the image and I was pretty happy with the outcome.  Nothing to crazy for me....just a slight distressed look.  I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment, from The Big, the Bold and the Happy,  on vellum and then added in a wooden arrow for some detail.

Now for the fun part!  Want a chance to win a $30 gift certificate?


I am going to be joining Winnie and Walter on Wednesday and Friday of this week, with 2 more cards to share.  Leave a comment on each post for up to 3 chances to win!  I will draw a random winner from the comments on all 3 posts and announce the winner on Saturday, August 2nd.

Thanks so much for coming by today!  Hope you have a great Monday!
