Guest Designer at Inkspirational!

Hi! I am so excited to have been invited as a Guest Designer for the current Inkspirational challenge!

I made a card using my fairly new stamp set from 'Stamps By Me'. I stamped the outline in black, then inked up the petals stamp with blue and purple, spritzed with water, and then stamped. I know this isn't a new technique, but it's fairly new to me, and I love it! The colours blend beautifully, and you get a lovely watercolour effect :) I cut a square frame with my die cuts, stamped the birthday sentiment in blue and purple ink, and attached the frame with 3d squares. I added Nuvo Drops to the flower centres, and to the 'i's in the sentiment.

Stamps By Me: Amazing Daisy set
'Birthday Wishes' sentiment from Woodware 'Daisy Panel'
Artistry Ink pads: Indian Jamun, Blue Chase
Nuvo Crystal Drops: Pale Gold

What a beautiful card! The aperture really focuses the eye on thedetails. I love that free-form watercolour look and the gorgeous blue and purple mix. Good idea to stamp the sentiment in the same colours - I always seem to just go for black but your way looks really co-ordinated. Thanks for being a fabulous Guest Designer at Inkspirational.

What a fantastic card! I like how you created dimension, but still have a lot of white. Your flowers look great featured in your window. Congrats on the DT position! We love having your work with us at Inkspirational!
