SNSS New Release Friday Feature 13

Hello and welcome to Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps New 
Release Friday Feature and Challenge! The Design Team 
have come up with some lovely samples with one of the recently 
released sets now available at the SNSS Store.
This week we're highlighting the sweet set 


I'm still playing with watercolors after taking the
fabulous Watercolor for Cardmakers Online Class!
To create the background,
I used watercolor paper and Distress inks, including Shabby 
Shutters, Peeled Paint, Dusty Concord, Victorian Velvet and 
Picked Raspberry.  I liberally sprayed 
the paper with water so the colors would mix slightly and the ink
 would move around.  After drying, it was then spritzed with water 
and a paper towel was used to "lift" the wet ink.  
The panel is popped up on a watercolor paper card base.
The flowers and sentiment were embossed in white on vellum, and cut 
along the top, before being attached to the background panel.

I had another card using this fabulous set "on the go" so that I could
post it today - but have you ever had a card that seemed
determined not to be made?  I smudged, spilled, cut wonky angles,
snipped wrong bits, and smudged again!  I finally had to
concede defeat! :)

Now take a look at the full Sunshine & Flowers with all the details below:


  * Stamp set measures 4" x 6".
* Set includes 8 images and 3 sentiments.
* The large flower image is approximately 2 1/2" x 3 3/4".
* Designed by Diane Zechman.
* Stamp set priced at $15.

The challenge this week is Make It Colorful - use at least 5 
colors on your card.  The first cards in the hop were 
created for your inspiration by the design team - then add 
your own colorful card using the linky took below.

Just a few guidelines as you play:
- You don't have to use a Sweet 'n Sassy image to enter, 
although it's great to see it when you do!
- You'll have until Thursday, May 29th at midnight EST to enter.
- 1 winner will be drawn from this week's challenge to 
receive a $10 credit to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.
- Please use SNSSFFC13 when uploading to 
Splitcoaststampers or other galleries.
- Share a link to your creation below.

Thanks for joining us today.  Be sure to check the SNSS blog 
on Friday, May 30th to see if you won and to check
