Create Outside the Lines


Happy Friday.  One step closer to a long weekend for us here in Ontario, Canada.  Today, I am creating a simple 2 layer card and playing along with the challenge at Splitcoast
I began my card by stamping the outline of the roses with black Memento ink.  I then stamped the petals with shades of red Distress inks.  This stamp set from Altenew is a three-step set which is wonderful for creating so many different looks for the flowers and great for watercolouring as well. 
I masked the white portion of my card and splattered red ink over the roses to add depth.  When that was dry, I stamped the sentiment from STAMPlorations....I love the sayings especially the one that says 'paint outside the lines' which works perfectly with this stamp set.
 
I am adding my card to these challenges:
 
Simon Says- ANYTHING GOES
 
Addicted to Stamps- ANYTHING GOES
 
Crafty Creations - JUST FOR FUN
 
Paper Pretties- RED/GREEN
 
 
Thanks so very much for coming by and taking a look. 
 
Supplies:  stamps- Altenew, STAMPlorations/ Memento ink/ Distress ink/ paint brush/ foam dots
