STAMPlorations CASEplorations July

***Please note that its a post heavy day today so there will be more posts coming up.  :-)***

Hey everyone!  Guess what?!  It's time for a new CASEplorations over at STAMPlorations!   We've got an amazing card to CASE this month by wonderful card artist, Elina Stromberg.  Just check out her totally stunning card below....

Isn't is gorgeous?!  It's not my usual style but I tried my hand at some mixed media type stamping.   Take a look at what I came up with....

I started off by stamping my butterflies (Winged Things set) and my wavy lines (Mixed Media Elements set) in white StazOn ink.  Then I sponged on Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed and Abandoned Coral Distress inks.  The white StazOn ink acts as a resist. I then stamped the same images using Abandoned Coral ink.  I stamped the hearts (Sketchy Coffee Cups set) in Abandoned Coral and Walnut Stain ink.  I stamped the script stamp (Mixed Media Elements set) in Walnut Stain that I had spritzed with water first and stamped off once or twice.  I splattered water to create water droplets.  I inked up the edges with Walnut Stain ink.  I stamped the distressed lines (Mixed Media Elements set) and the butterflies (Trendy Butterflies set) in Walnut Stain and black in that was spritzed with water first.  I die cut the celebrate and inked it up with Abandoned Coral, Walnut Stain and black ink.  I stamped the love (Frames and Flowers set) in a mixture of Walnut Stain and black ink.  I attached my panel to a white card base.  This was quite fun to create and forced me out of my normal CAS box.  I quite like it!

So, I hope you'll all pop on by the main blog and check out all the fabulous cards by the DT and remember there are prizes to be won too!

Have a fantastic day and thanks for dropping by!
