JustRite's Day 4 of New Releases!

Could it possibly be Friday again?! Where in the world did this week go? Now that summer vacation has started I really need these days to slow down a bit! ; ) 

 I have another JustRite release to share with you today! Today's stamp is a Paris Background stamp.  Even though I may never have the opportunity to see Paris in person, I have a little love affair with it. There is something so romantic and mysterious about it. So for now, I will have to admire from afar!  

I finally broke down and purchased the new Tim Holtz Distress Markers.  I absolutely love them! (Said in my best sing songy voice!) This was my first attempt at using them.  I stamped the image with Versamark and embossed it in black on watercolor paper.  I gave parts of the image color with the markers and used my waterbrush pen to soften it a bit.  There is a bit of a learning curve with them, but I can tell already that I am going to use them a lot!  I stamped the sentiment in Winter Wisteria by Papertrey Ink.  It is part of the Large Fancy Sentiment's set.  
I added a Prima flower, twine, suede leaves, and tulle to dress it up.  The leaves and tulle were purchased from Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply store.  

For more gorgeousness be sure to visit these talented designers' blogs!

I have another busy weekend ahead of me, filled with birthday and graduation parties.  But tonight I am playing in a couple's golf outing.  It is hilarious because I don't golf!  My husband has had me in "training" the last 2 weeks.  We've been hitting buckets of balls, while he critiques every pressure there! ; ) So hopefully tonight I don't completely embarrass myself!  For you golfers out there, he tells me it's a Scramble and the tees are moved up.  It is supposed to be fun....not competitive.  (Thank goodness!) 
So wish me luck! 
Have a wonderful weekend my friends!

Gorgeous - gorgeous - gorgeous! It has a wonderful texture in addition to the great colors. It is perfectly vintage and modern at the same time. This stamp will have to come to live at my house sometime in the near future. Thank you for the wonderful inspiration, the Tim Holtz distress markers tips, and the fun of the golf scramble. Hope you had a good time out there.
