STAMPlorations August Blog Hop Day 3




Hi Everyone!

It's Blog Hop Time again over at STAMPlorations! Welcome to Day 3, where we're shining the spotlight on Fond Expressions 2, a set designed by Shery aka Shery Russ Designs.

Here is the set which is fast becoming one of my favourites ...


and here is what I made of it ...


The little stars from the Balloons and Banners set really reminded me of a smile and gave me the inspirations for this card. Again I masked off a strip and sponged some yellow and orange before stamping the starry smiles in yellow, my sentiment and another big smile in black and my card was finished,

Strange how the colours change depending on light when you take a photo ... here is another look to illustrate the point ...

  14. Fab! I like how you've repeated the stars in the panel, and they look great with the sentiment.

  15. I'm also often baffled by how much colours change in photos, and then I always keep thinking about whether other people will perceive the colours in the same way I do, maybe their eyes pick up colours differently or maybe their computer screens are set differently... Photography can be such a tricky media! Your card is very beautiful, I love all the stars, especially the ones in the sentiment.

  16. Masking and then sponging on ink to add colour to a strip of paper is something I haven't tried yet. Heading to my crafting space right now!
