Here is a card I created for the inspired by the Featured Stamper Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers.  It is such a fun challenge to play along with.  Each week, a gallery is chosen to highlight and to play along, you chose a card from that gallery to case.  You must change it to make it your own though.  

This is the card I chose to case this week:
by Lamoore

I began with a piece of heavy white cardstock.
Using the Chevron Fade stencil from A Colorful Life Designs, I rubbed on some DOX inks, fading out near the edges.  When I was happy with the stencilling, I splattered with water to lift some of the colour and add interest.
I placed the piece into my Misti then stamped the flowers and sentiment from the Beautiful You set from STAMPlorations using Versafine ink.
I simply mounted the piece onto some coordinating cardstock, then onto a white card base.

Thanks so much for taking a look.

This is a great card, Karen! It’s always hard for me to visualize a design other than the sample or inspiration, so I’m impressed with your design for the case. Well done!

What a beauty, Karen. I love the splatters on the inked BG. They add so much to the lifelike feel of the card. (Don't you love those silhouette stamps?) Thanks for playing with us at STAMPlorations CAS Cards Challenge.
