Inspired By Stamping: You Got This


Hi, all!  I'm back with another card using some beautiful stamps from the Inspired By Stamping online store!  We're sharing creations to fit our challenge this month.  You can choose one prompt, two prompts, as many as you'd like, then link up with us!  Take a peek at our inspirations...

                                    
                                     

I decided to use a bit of string, work with these gorgeous colors, and create a floral patterned background on my card.  Take a peek...


I heat embossed the flower image from the Flower of the Month: Aster stamp set and a butterfly image from the Butterflies stamp set onto some watercolor paper using clear embossing powder.  I then used inks to watercolor and create a fun background.



The sentiment is from the *NEW* Watercolor Sentiments stamp set and I chose to stamp it in black.  I decided to use black card for all my matting--I think it helps the watercoloring to POP a bit more. 


Some rhinestones and string finished off this card.  I LOVE the way this turned out--I adore the fun way the background turned out, especially!  What do you think?  I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!


That's all for me today!  I hope you come join in our fabulous challenge for your chance to win some fabulous goodies from the Inspired By Stamping online store!  Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping to you all! :)

Mynn, This is card is just fabulous, I love your water colouring background I agree the black matting makes the colours pop even more rather than mute it. What a fabulous job. Hugs to you. Jo
