I recently received my order from STAMPlorations. I won a $10.00 Gift Certificate from the talented owner Shery Russ. I ordered Shirley's Bee's Knees "Winged Things" stamp set that has the cutest dragonflies and butterflies. They are an open design so perfect for stamping over my smooshed background. I also got "Shower of Flutters" Stencil to play with later. I sent this card to Shery as a thank you for her constant generosity and keeping all of us Inspired with all her challenges and fabulously talented DT's...including herself :-) You are the "Best Ever" in the world my friend! The sentiment is from Shery's "Fond Expressions 1" sentiment stamp set. I also have "Fond Expressions 2". Two of my very favorite sentiment sets.
I used 2 of SU's In Colors that are retiring...Lost Lagoon and Blackberry Bliss. I am stocking up on both CS's, ink refills and ribbon. I smeared ink on my craft mat and spritzed with water and then smooshed onto my W/C paper. Smooshing one color at a time and letting dry before adding a 2nd color. One spot that was not quite dry smeared, but my dragonfly camouflaged most of it. I can't wait to watercolor these images in the future. This is going to be a really fun set :-)
I am entering my card in STAMPlorations Never-ending Anything Goes Challenge.. STAMPlorations stamps and/ or stencils must be the main part of your card. Only seemed right, since this was the challenge I won by having my name randomly picked from entries 1-700. Now that was a real lucky pick :-)
