STAMPlorations Inspiration #133

Well, true to form, here in New Brunswick, Spring has brought the rain.  It has rained A LOT here.  On Saturday we had more than 50mm of rain.  Some areas here and in Fredericton the river has reached flood levels.  The old Trans Canada Highway has shut down from here to Burton.  Some of it is underwater right now.  I feel bad for those who live along there.  But, they have gone through this many times before.  I don't know how they do it.  We haven't had bad flooding for a couple of years so I guess it was just a matter of time.  Unfortunately, there's more rain coming.  Thank goodness we live far enough away from the river and are up on a hill.  Anyway, it is time for another inspiration post over at STAMPlorations.  This week we are showcasing Becca's stamps.  This is what I made...

First, I stamped the candles (A Snarky Birthday to You set) and then the sentiment (same set).  Then I created masks for the candles and the sentiment.  I then stamped the grunge background (Mixed Media Elements set) using Dove Gray StazOn ink.  I removed the masks and coloured in the candles with my Spectrum Noir markers.  This set always makes me laugh.

Well, I hope you pop on over to the main blog and check out what the rest of the DT made.  Leave a comment there and be entered for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to the STAMPlorations store!
