My daughter is getting ready to roll into final exams in college and I made this card with her in mind.  She has big dreams and I know she will achieve it all – she is that dedicated.  She also loves dreamcatchers!  Sadly, I didn’t get it in the mail in time for her to get it before the exams – but at least its ready for her when she comes home!

This card features a new stamp set called Be Wild from A Muse Studio’s May Collection.  Aren’t the colors soft and dreamy?  And I love the CAS feel of it all – but I think there are still some small details that keep it from being to plain or boring.

I also tried out something new!  You know the rubber stamping technique where you color your stamps with markers and then spritz it lightly with water?  I guess you can do that with dye inks too.  A Muse Studio inks are more of a pigment type ink that you can’t watercolor with – but I tried misting the inked stamps with water and I LOVE the results!  In the close up you can see that I did first and second generation stamping before reinking and remisting.  I tried this same technique with equally beautiful results with the Mini Blooms set here.

What rubber stamping supplies do I need to make this card?

This is a great layout for using up some paper scraps and I made my stitched sentiment “tag” using the technique I first shared here.
