STAMPlorations Inspiration Post #41

Hello!  It's time again for an Inspiration post over at STAMPlorations!  As always we encourage you to join in and CASE one of our cards from today's post or CASE Greta's card from the CASEplorations post.  If you do play along you could win a prize too!  Here's what I made...

I stamped my flowers (Blooming Buds set, Dee's Artsy Impressions line) in Memento grey flannel ink, masking where I needed to.  I masked areas and stamped with a variety of distress type stamps (Mixed Media Elements set) in the two corners of the card also in grey flannel ink but stamping off first to create a lighter effect.  I stamped the sentiment (Fond Expressions 2 set) in full strength grey flannel ink.  Then I coloured in my flowers with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I also outlined and faded it around my flowers in grey as well.  Love how this turned out.  The mixed media stamps are awesome!

I do hope you'll all join in on the fun and CASE a card!  You should definitely check out what the rest of the team made too!

Have an awesome day and thanks for stopping by!
