Fun With Delft Style Stamps

Good morning!  
It's been a CRAZY busy few days at The Missouri State Fair, but we're home and ready to get back in to the swing of things!  I created a couple of cards with some of the new Delft Style Stamps from Katy Sue Designs/Flower Soft.

I had these created before we left for the fair, but I didn't get them posted, and had planned to do that from the campgrounds, since they advertised that they had wireless internet available.  WELL... the best laid plans, right?  I guess they did offer wireless internet, BUT it was so sporadic that I couldn't get a decent connection long enough to make a post.  :-(  Oh WELL!  I'm home and happy to finally be able to share!!

I've got to say that these were fun to play with and color.  I used the crackle background over the entire image to make it look sort of "old worldy".  These images are from the Delft Style Collection and you can view them all HERE.  I also added a sprinkle of Ultra Fine Flower Soft in the sand color for the sandy beach.  Boy, does this stuff go a long way.  I have used that color a lot this summer on different projects, and I still have a nearly full pot of it!  Good stuff right there, I'm tellin' ya!! 

For this card, I used the crackle stamp as a background, and I LOVE the look that the corner stamps gave this image.  I created a frame with the corner stamps that are included in the Scenes stamp set.  I kept the embellishments for this one to a minimum.  I just think the scene speaks for itself and it just doesn't need anything to distract from it.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a wonderful day and happy stampin'!!!
