Hello! It's the end of the month, which means it's new release (and blog hop!) time for the Alley Way Stamps. All sets that have been previewed this week are now available in the store. For my card today, I'm showcasing the new Nessie set, which is free with any $40 purchase through the month of January. Hopefully you've reached my blog by way of Francine's blog. (If you'd like to start at the beginning of the hop, please click here.)
To create my card today, I started with a piece of watercolor paper, and added some aqua and blue inks to create a little lake. I then stamped the Nessie pieces onto another piece of watercolor paper and colored her in. While they were drying, I zapped the lake with my heat gun, then stamped the sentiment in versamark ink before heat embossing with gold powder.
Twine was then wrapped around the panel before it was adhered to the card base with pop dots. Once the Nessie pieces were dry, I fussy cut them out and adhered them to the card base. The eyes were covered with glossy accents, and the little nubbies were covered with stickles. To finish up, I embellished with yellow enamel dots.
Here's a look at the stamp sets being released this month:
