It's Tuesday and that means Inspiration time over at STAMPlorations. Today I have 2 DT pieces for you, one which I made before the move and my most recent make inspired by LIM's current theme of 'splatters'.
First up is my card featuring the Calla lily from Smile in combination with a sentiment from Trendy Feathers 2.
I simply stamped, coloured and fuzzy cut the Calla lily, spritzed some Elegant Eggplant on my base card, stamped my sentiment in Elegant Eggplant on a strip of card and layered everything up as seen adding a sequin to finish. This is sort of a 'tidy my desk' type of card: the lily was originally coloured for my card here, but was a little too pale to be used, the frame is the off-cut from my golden circle used on this card here and the sentiment was a strip I tried on another card, but didn't use.
Next up is a card I made using STAMPlorations' current Stamp Club set called Gone Postal ...
... in combination with the splatters stamp from the Mixed Media Elements set. I first stamped the splatters in Cherry Cobbler. Next using black Archival I stamped the car and with a damp brush drew some of the colour from the stamped splatters along to colour my little car. Once dry, I masked the car and stamped the postage frame and sentiment. With my mask still in place I spritzed a little Cherry Cobbler to add a few more splatters and splashes before adding the wavy postage mark and layering with a little tilt on my red base card to finish. I quite like the little tilt, it reminds me of several letters coming through the door and landing on top of each other ....
