Welcome to the ARTplorations Stencil Blog Hop. This is where we, the STAMPlorations Girls, put our stencils through their paces.
For today's project I worked with the Droplets stencil to create this shaded purple beauty... here in the sunshine ...
... here without the shadows ...
... and here on the inside ...
I simply sponged some light purple pigment ink through the Droplets stencil shading as I went along. I stamped my sentiment from the Celebrate Artsy set in Imperial Purple Versafine ink and added some gems. I have lots of these gems and never used them ... until now! They were a perfect match and turned the droplets into a field of candles. At least that's what I like to think. :-)
I decided to go for an asymmetrical border for extra interest. On the inside I stamped the couple from the VIGNETTE Ever After set in the same light purple pigment ink (it looks a little more pink here) and my sentiment from the Birthday Cake in Imperial Purple before doodling a partial border.
I am entering my card at:
Inkspirational - purple
CASology - story
