I'm sure you've all seen by now that the fabulously talented Kimberly Crawford has released her own line of stamps, Mint Motif, through iheartpapers.com. I was lucky enough to actually win both her new sets last week during the release festivities and just received my sets yesterday!! Very Square and Very Square Sentiments are so much fun! When I saw that the CAS challenge on SCS was shabby chic I knew my new stamps would work perfectly!!
Now let me say I am shabby-chic-challenged. It's true, honestly! But with Very Square it was easy! These cute little (1.75") squares of different patterns are perfect for the mixy and matchy that is shabby chic.
I stamped my two squares with Spring Moss ink and used one of the sentiments from Very Square Sentiments. Now I have the new formulation of Spring Moss ink - the hybrid, and found that this almost chalk-like ink gives the stamped image a much softer, shabbier look.
