STAMPlorations Guest Designer




 
 Good Morning.  Today, I am the Guest Designer at STAMPlorations.  The challenge for August is
STAMPS and DIE CUTS
 I started creating my card by working on the background.  I inked up the front of a stencil from The Crafter's Workshop with blue Distress inks.  I sprayed the stencil with water, then placed my paper over that.  It is like doing a reverse stencil technique. 
When my background was dry, I stamped the SUBWAY ART BUILDERS:Create down the side of my card using black Memento ink and added the die-cut leaf.
I hope you can play along with the challenge.  You could win a new stamp.
 
Also adding my card to these challenges:
 
Shopping Our Stash- SPLISH, SPLASH
 
Addicted to Stamps- MAKE YOUR MARK
 
The Mixed Media Challenge- SUMMER (blue waters of the beach for my card)
 
Sister Act- ANYTHING GOES
 
 
 
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
 
Supplies:  stamps- STAMPlorations/ stencil- TCW/ Distress ink/ Memento black/ die- Impression Obsession
