STAMPlorations December Challenge + goodbyes

Hi everyone and welcome back. 

Today is the start of the new monthly challenge over at STAMPlorations. This challenge is

Choose any of our past challenges for inspiration (monthly or sketch).

I decided to choose a challenge that I missed creating for because I was off galavanting around London and Spain ;)

Back in April of this year our challenge was -

You could show us your favourite technique to use. I have chosen


(You can see my tutorial HERE)

Yep! That was hard to decide. It really is my favourite technique at the moment. 

Here is my card

I wanted to use this stamp from the TYPOGRAFIA: Encouragement set so I inked up my acrylic blocks with Distress Ink colours (Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed & Scattered Straw) I felt reflected the desert. I die cut a sun from another panel that I used the same technique for and inked the edges with a brown ink.

All the splats were made with my acrylic blocks as well. Just ink up the block and spray it really well with water. Let the drips fall onto your watercolour paper.

We also have a guest desinger joining us for this challenge - LauraJane

I would now like to express my sincere thanks and gratitude to Shery of STAMPlorations. This will be my last post as a Design Team member for her. Thanks so much to all the other girls at STAMPlorations. They are an amazing team!!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -
