STAMPlorations Inspiration #226

Hi Everyone,
its inspiration time at STAMPlorations!

My stamp supplies:

Happy Flowers stencil, Birthday die

I made an alcohol ink background on Kraft Plastic - similar to Yupo paper. I took some foil and pressed it onto the little sticky areas. The foil sticks to this. You will see this better in the obliqued image. Took the stencil and laid it on the background. Took clear alcohol to dab off the open areas of the stencil - it removes the ink and leaves you with the negative picture. I took a thin Sharpie and outlined the stencil. Added the birthday die and the heat embossed wishes.

to get 20% off on all stamps, stencils, and dies on all regular- and sale-priced items in the store.

All our  Inspiration Project posts have a monthly random drawing - 1 commenter wins a $10 gift certificate. So look at all those fabulous cards the Inspiration Girls made and leave them some love! It may pay off :)

Happy Stamping!

Good golly, Miss Molly, this is awesome. Love the contrast of the ink and white space. Outlining the stencil was a brilliant idea...those flowers really pop.

I love this design and thanks so much for explaining how you did that. As soon as my busy summer slows down I will have to try that. I love working with stencils.

Fabulous card Cornelia - the AI background and colours are so fresh and the AI lift worked amazingly well for the flowers and the outlining gives it definition then finishing off with the cool stand out sentiment...love it and thanks for playing along with CAS Stencil, Robyn
