STAMPlorations Inspiration Project #21

Hi Everyone, its INSPIRATION day again at STAMPlorations

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

Today I have been playing with the Marigold from the new stamp club set The Birds and The Blooms.

I first stamped the Marigold 3 times on Kraft, then masked it with rubber cement. After that dried I gessoed it over, let it dry again and then rubbed of the cement. I still am learning how to do this correctly, since it did not cover everything consistently and little specks of Gesso remained on the paper....That did not make me happy, so I made myself a post -it mask and repeatedly stamped onto the Gesso. Still not happy.... stamped the flower onto white card stock and fuzzy cut it and mounted it with foam tape. Now I liked it..... Added the sentiment from the set Fond Expressions

Linking up with:

So, if you are up for it - CASE my card or any other card and link it up HERE over at STAMPlorations. The InLinkz gallery  will be open until the 5th of July - gives 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.

I don't know if you did this "right" or not. Don't care, because I love it. White & Black on kraft with that lovely marigold makes me very happy...and, you know, it's all about me. Anyhoo, fabulous card...going to try this one, too.

Wonderful idea for a sympathy card. I actually brought some masking fluid back with me this spring, but haven't been brave enough to try it. Kudos!

Michelle said...

Beautiful! I love the positive/negative images. So clever! And lovely!

Deepti said...

Wow! I am speechless :)

Kim M said...

This is really cool, Cornelia! Love how it turned out. I wonder if masking fluid would be easier to use rather than rubber cement? It's been a long time since I've used masking fluid. Anyway, fantastic card! :-)
