MCT February Release Sneak Peek Day #2

Hi and welcome to day 2 of sneak peeks from My Creative Time's newest stamp release. Today we are showcasing a couple of background stamps called Spring Chicken. These are darling. The background that I used is really chicken wire but I thought it also looked a lot like honeycomb so I made a 3.25" note card using the chicken wire/honeycomb background.


To get the pretty glossy (honey) finish on the background stamp I inked it with watermark ink and then I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I ALWAYS love how clear embossing powder looks on a background stamp! The sweet little sentiment and tag are from Emma's January release and are called Teeny Tag Greetings. The cute little bee is from Create a Critter and stamped with the Snow Cuties face by Peachy Keen Stamps.
