Neat & Tangled June Release & Giveaways - Day 1




Hey everyone!  It's release week at Neat & Tangled, and we're kicking things off with a new set from Danielle called Bloom.

I am in love with this set.  It's got a couple handlettered sentiments and also some great florals.

For my card today I went with a neutral, monochromatic color scheme.  I stamped the main floral image on both ends of my cardstock (using the MISTI so it's perfectly centered/evenly spaced) to frame the sentiment and colored it with Copics.  I mostly used cool grays, but added a big of light pink to the little circles to soften it up a bit.  I also went around the sentiment with the C1 marker. it's hard to see it in the photos, but I think it makes the sentiment pop a little more.  A black and white print for the base finished things off.



Those flowers are so pretty aren't they?  You definitely want to swing over to the N&T blog to see what the full set looks like and to enter to win this set as Danielle is giving one away to a lucky commenter.

I have several items in the release this month and I'll be picking some winners too.  I'm going to mix things up a bit, and I'll be picking winners from comments both here and on Instagram.  So leave a comment here and each day this week, and then head over to IG (@mprantner) for an extra chance.  I'll announce the winners on Friday.  See you back here tomorrow!
