Inkspirational Challenge #166-Designer's Choice..

Inkspirational Designer Sandie's Choice
Make a card in 10 minutes or Less!

The perfect Inspiration for me to play with a couple new release stamp sets 
designed by Shery at STAMPlorations.

My 7 minutes and 58 seconds Blooms Card!

I loved how my bright and cheerful card turned out.  I let my MISTI do all the work.

I got all my supplies out and arranged the stamps from STAMPlorations "Brave One" and
"Big Dreamer" on Strathmore Mixed Media paper in my MISTI.

Then set the timer for 10 Minutes!

Inked all the stamps with Archival Jet Black Ink and restamped a couple of times
for good coverage.  Then started coloring with my Zig markers.

I chose colors ahead that were in the Washi tape, so did not have to think...
just started coloring.

When done added the Washi tape for a border and Clear Wink of Stella to all the images
and Done!  The bonus...I really liked the cheerful One Layer Design:-)

Thank you Sandie for a fun challenge and Shery for a fun new stamp set:-)

Have a wonderful weekend.  Hugs...
