Welcome to day three of the WMS previews! The DT and I are featuring FIVE new stamp sets that will be available for purchase at the Waltzingmouse web store on Sunday, September 12th.
I just wanted to remind you all to check out Claire, Anya, Bonnie, Carly, Jennifer, Julia, Laurie, Lisa, Lynn, and Mona, who all have fabulous projects to share with you! In addition, today the WMS sketch team is also able to use some of the new sets so be sure to check out the sketch blog for some more sneak peeks!
Today I'm showing you the fabulous Nutcracker Sweet and Music Backgrounds set. I adore these two sets. In fact, so much that I couldn't put them down. If I colored faster, everyone would be getting these are their Xmas cards this year. However, I'm not insane... unfortunately for my friends and family.
* A little too much red leaked out from the bottom. Red is a hard color to fix - I tried, I really did but it was just too much leakage. So I decided in an effort to salvage my image, I'd cut the nutcracker out. I also used a gold gel pen to cover some of the thinner lines in the image to cover the red boo-boos.
* The tree shading didn't meet my specifications either -- so what did I do? Yes, I colored another one and added some dimension to the image with a pop dot. Hah -- and you thought that was intentional... ;-)
If this is the only thing you learn from reading my blog-o, I want to make sure you all learn this: It's never how well you color, but rather how well you know how to cover up your mistakes. ;-) And let me tell you, I am the master at making mistakes.
Thanks for stopping by!
