STAMPlorations Inspiration March 9

Hi Everyone, its INSPIRATION day at STAMPlorations

The DT girls made some beautiful cards to entice you playing with your stamps - STAMPlorations or otherwise..... 


I am playing with the set Trendy Butterflies. I inked them up with Gesso - trying the Gesso resist technique. Not sure if I am happy with it. I like my images crisp, not smudgy.... sloshed some water color around the butterflies - the resist worked only partially.....Stamped the sentiments onto watercolor paper - to have the same colored paper and colored the large word with the same colors as the watercolor background. You can see it if you look carefully....

So, if you are up for it - CASE my card or any other card and link it up over at STAMPlorations. The InLinkz gallery  will be open until the 5th of April - givse you plenty of time! One winner will be randomly drawn from all entries to win a $15 gift certificate or their choice of any 2 ARTplorations stencils.

Happy CASEing!

Also linking this card with Simon Says Monday challenge - B is for ...butterflies

I do like the look of this technique, Cornelia. It looks really soft and makes for a great background combined with your lovely bright colours. It's good to try something new. Have a lovely day! xxx
