STAMPlorations Inspiration #34

It's a great day to bring you some more inspiration from the Inspiration Team over at STAMPlorations!  We've got some fabulous projects to share with you.  And if you'd like to play along too feel free to CASE my card, or one of the other DT's cards from today's post.  Or CASE a card from Inspiration Posts #31, #32, or #33.  Or if you want, CASE Karen's card from the CASEplorations post.  It's up to you who you CASE.  If you do play along with us you could win a prize!  Anyway, this is what I made this time...

(All stamps are by STAMPlorations)

First, I masked of the section I wanted to stamp in.  I lightly sponged my picked raspberry ink (Distress Ink) and dove gray ink (StazOn) then using the small rose stamp (Frames and Flowers set, Dee's Artsy Impressions) I stamped with picked raspberry ink, stamping off first and lightly spritzing with water.  Then I stamped the large rose stamp (Frames and Flowers set, Dee's Artsy Impressions) the same way but was a little heavier with the ink so it was a bit darker.  Then I stamped the leaf (Frames and flowers set, Dee's Artsy Impressions) in dove gray.  Using a wet one wipe I lightly wiped the surface to blend the inked a bit.  The gray didn't blend or dull the pink as it is a solvent based ink and wasn't affected by the wipe.  Once that was dry, I removed the mask a created new, narrow ones for my black and gray strips.  I stamped the sentiment (Fond Expressions 2) in black.

I do hope you'll join us and CASE a card.  I look forward to seeing your awesome projects!

Have a lovely day and thanks for visiting!
