STAMPlorations Inspiration #72

Well, Tuesday has rolled around again.  It's amazing how quickly the week went by!  We've got another fabulous bunch of cards to share over at STAMPlorations for this week's inspiration post.  I finally got my hands on a stamp set I've been dying to have so, of course, I had to use it.  Take a look...

I chose two of the awesome leaf stamps from the Trendy Leaves set, and inked them up with the following Distress inks:  Peacock Feathers, Mustard Seed, Seedless Preserves, Abandoned Coral.  The combination of these colours is a bit unusual but I like it.  I inked them up and then spritzed with some water so they would blend.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment (Fond Expressions 2 set) in black.  I liked how this turned out so much I made another card but changed the sentiment (Fond Expressions 2 set)and splattered some black ink on it.

So, I hope you enjoyed your visit today and that you'll take a look at the rest of the DT's projects too. Thanks for stopping by!

I'd like to link up the first card to the following challenges:

Virginia's View Challenge - she has a link up party going on right now and the theme is Friendship

Mod Squad Challenge Blog - incorporate water either by images of materials.
