STAMPlorations Inspiration #115

Happy Tuesday everyone!  It's a great day to share some cards, don't you think?  Well, that's what we are doing over at STAMPlorations.  It's Inspiration post day and us DT girls have some great cards to show you!

This week we are showcasing stamps set from Deepti's line, Dee's Artsy Impressions.  I just love Deepti's stamps.  So much fun to create with!  This is what I came up with...

So, my son had to go to a birthday party recently and his friend loves Super Mario Bros. by Nintendo.  I thought to myself, what kind of card could I make with this theme.  Then my eyes lit upon Deepti's set, Balloons and Banners.  There is a star shape balloon.  In the game there are super stars that can give Mario special abilities for a short time.  I thought this star stamp would be perfect to transform into one of the super stars from the game.  😀  So, I stamped the balloon three times and coloured them in with my Spectrum Noir markers. I added the eyes with a black marker.  I added some swirls from the same set in blue and red.  I hand drew the balloon strings in.  I stamped the sentiment (from same set) in black.  Lastly, I attached my panel to a green card base. I love how it turned out and do did my son. His friend immediately recognized the balloons. 😀

Well, I hope you pop on over to the main blog and check out what the rest of the DT made.  Leave a comment there and be entered for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to the STAMPlorations store!
