Buckets of Love



Welcome back to the second day of the There She Goes November release sneak peeks! If you have arrived here from Miss Julie's blog then you are in the right place, if not then please start back at the TSG Blog :D

This amazing set was illustrated by the incredibly talented Torico and is called Buckets of Love. This is a 4x6 stamp set that includes a total of 18 stamps and will sell for $15.




I water coloured the image with Derwent Inktense Pencils and a water brush and then added a little bit of shading with some pastels. I sponged in the background and then coated the hearts with some crystal effects for some extra shine :D The heart backdrop is a Spellbinders heart die and I used some sheer ribbon and Maya Rd heart pins to finish off the card.

Would you like a chance to win the “Buckets of Love” stamp set? Here’s what you need to do- go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their “Buckets of Love” Blog Hop Challenge post. After you have finished checking out the eye candy and have left some love, return to the TSG Blog and add your name to the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this Blog Hop Challenge post. A winner will be chosen randomly using a random number generator to receive their very own “Buckets of Love” stamp set. The winner will be announced Saturday (Jan. 1st) during the Release Party Chat.

Thanks for coming by today and don't forget to swing on back here tomorrow for day 3 of these wonderful releases. Now you are off to the very talented Piali's Blog :) Have fun!
