May Release from CAS-ual Fridays Stamp (Day 4)

Today is the last day for May sneak peek over CAS-ual Fridays Stamps!
 
There are two sets to be featured today-- Zigs & Zags and Houndstooth. They are the perfect background stamps that you have always wanted to have!

My first card is from Zig Zag. I embossed it in gold and then used watercolor brush to color the distress inks in between the zig-zag. I love how rich this looks!
for you
My two other cards from Hounds-tooth
The best thing about this set is that it comes with three sizes of hounds tooth! How awesome is that!? I used the medium size for the following card.
Best Wishes
  The sentiment is from Bold Wishes.
I then used the largest size and smallest size for the last card. You can layer the image with different colors and make whatever patterns your heart desires!
Thank U (2)
I sure had tons of fun creating these cards and I still have lots and lots of ideas brewing in my head with all these new release stamps. Do check out more samples over CAS-ual Fridays Stamps. Remember to comment for a chance to win. Today is the LAST day! The winners will be announced tomorrow and the stamps are ready for you to order as well.
Thanks for stopping by!
