Serendipity Stamps - April Blog Hop #2!


Welcome to the 2nd HOP for April!  I've been playing with the new 
Distress Oxide Inks and made this background with those inks.  
They make a great setting for some bold words and images.

I stamped and clear embossed the butterflies so they shine.  The SISTERS
are die cut 3 times and glued together for thickness.


Inside I stamped the funny new sentiment from Serendipity.
I used Oxide Faded Jeans for the ink.
Finished size is an A-2.

The HOP Prize is a $20 Serendipity Stamps Gift Certificate 
to a random commenter.  
You can leave comments from Wednesday through Sunday
 and Mary will announce the winner on Monday.
