JustRite's April Release-Home Tweet Home & Stitched Circles

Today I actually have TWO cards to share with you!  I know, I know, pick yourself off of the ground, grab your coffee and let's do this! ;)
JustRite is releasing this very cool background stamp called, Stitched Circles.  I decided to use it for the bottom of my dress.  The dress itself is an adorable Silhouette file that you can find HERE.  I stamped the dress with Versamark and embossed it in white. 
After I embossed it, I used Tim Holtz Distress markers to give the circles color.  After I finished, I sprayed it with water so the colors would bleed into each other a bit.  I filled in parts of the circles with glossy accents and bit of clear glitter.  I added pearl accents and glittered the top of the dress as well. 
I added a bit of purple satin ribbon, string, a couple of posies, and a sentiment that I created using my Dymo Label Maker.
Here is the background set I used. :)
For my second card I used Home Tweet Home. I had a ball coloring all of the individual pieces.  I used the SVG cuts and my Silhouette to cut the pieces I wanted.  I colored each piece with my brand new Spectrum Noir markers!  I loved working with them! The colors are move easily and are incredibly vibrant!
I added some pearls and a scattering of colorful sequins to fill it in.
I added a bit of cream seam binding and coordinating string.

This set is so stinking cute I can hardly stand it!
Absolutely, positively be sure to check out the other talented designers! They are going to knock your socks off with their projects!

I am off to lunch with my mom and Cortney.  It's a rainy, gloomy day, but nothing that a Chinese meal, a glass of wine, and good company can't fix!
Have a great day!

W O W really isnt enough but the best I can do with the limited keyboard I have. These two cards are absolutely the best, most eye catching. The dress card just blows me away, the colour, details sparkle. The other card all those beautiful little flowers and the bird, the colour. You are so talented.
