STAMPlorations Monthly Challenge

Hi there everyone. We have a brand new challenge happening at STAMPlorations. 

We want you to use



I have been embossing more than ever lately. I think my new Distress Inks have something to do with it. The two work so well together.

Here is my DT card -




I have used two stamp sets here. Bloom Sketches: Daisy 2 and Bloom Sketches: Sunflower Artsy
I tried to make my daisies more like sunflowers and to compensate I used the sentiment from the Sunflower set :)

First, I die cut a circle and then stamped and masked my three daisies. Then keeping the mask in place, I sponged Broken China distress ink for the background. 

To colour the flowers, I used a cotton bud with Mustard Seed and Gathered Twigs Distress Inks.

The sentiment was embossed too.

I used the Fusion Challenge as inspiration for this card - I once again, went with both the photo and the sketch.



I would also like to enter my card into these fabulous challenges -

Patties Creations - Embossing
TimeOut - Stamping
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes
