Hello! It's a lovely day for a new challenge over at Inkspirational
! This challenge we have a prompt word for you. Sprinkle!
There are a lot of ways to interpret this word. Because of my HUGE sweet tooth I immediately thought sprinkles on cupcakes! But then I saw that a few of my teammates had the same idea. Great minds, people, great minds! I thought, okay, let's see if I can come up with something else. I admit I was stumped a little. Then I thought well, I could actually "sprinkle" something on my card like ink or something. So, that's what I did! Take a look....
As it turns out a couple of my teamies had the same notion too! Ah, we are so in tune with each other! LOL! Anyway, I decided to use a NBUS stamp by Stampendous. It's a lovely stamp reminiscent of those old style seed package ads. I stamped it in Soft Suede (SU!) then coloured it in lightly with my Spectrum Noir markers. I stamped a script stamp, a treble cleft and a section of sheet music (7 Gypsies) several times in soft suede stamping off to keep it subtle. I sponged the soft suede as well as some mellow moss and perfect plum (both SU!) around the image. Then I "sprinkled" some watered down perfect plum ink and some gold perfect pearls mist. I stamped my sentiment (STAMPlorations) in timber brown StazOn ink. I added a pale purple sheer bow. I'm pretty sure I found this ribbon at the dollar store. It's really pretty. This is a one layer card except for the bow.
I hope you'll all be able to join us and play along over at Inkspirational
