Mark’s Finest Papers May Release – day 3!

Welcome to Mark’s Finest Papers a Heinrich Company’s                         May Blog Hop!

This month’s New Stamp Set Releases are
Oopsy Daisy Featured May 15Get Reel Featured May 16Scenic Selections Featured May 17

Flamingos on Vacation Featured May 18

Today’s set – Scenic Selections – was so much fun to work with!  It contains trees, leaves, fences, and other images to help you create mini works of art!
I used one of the tree images and a sentiment from the Oopsy Daisy set.   The tree was stamped with Memento Cocoa ink and then I used some water based markers in red, orange and yellow to create the fall colors.  All I did was dab the brush end of the marker to make little dots – it worked perfectly!   I sponged green and blue ink to get the ground and sky.  A spellbinders die was used to make the postal stamp cutout and an EK Success border punch for the mat.   Seam binding was used for ribbon.  All cardstock is from Marks Finest Papers.
So – what happens when you schedule a post just before you go on vacation?  Something goes wrong of course!!   Last week I had a scheduled post doing a sneek peak for this set and when I got back from vacation I noticed the photo did not show up.   Soooo….here is the belated sneek peek:
