Watercolour Rose

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's Inspiration Time over at STAMPlorations. This week my treamies and I are showcasing stamps by STAMPlorations owner Shery under her label 'Shery Russ Designs'.

I decided to work with the Framed Solitary Rose in combination with stamps from the Mixed Media Grunge  and Sentiment Builder Happy plus the Hugs CUTplorations Word Die for an almost one-layer card. Here it is ...

I am still loving my Mixed Media card. I really like the smooth surface as compared to the textured one of watercolour card. Expect to see more of it. 😁

Todays card was again pretty straight forward:
  • fold a piece of A5 Mixed Media card in half
  • stamp the framed rose in black Archival
  • watercolour using inks (Calypso Coral, Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green, Mossy Meadow, Tempting Turquoise) or watercolours
  • stamp and die cut sentiment, add
  • add stamped border detail
  • finish off with sequins
New for this year, the STAMPlorations Inspiration DT are showcasing stamps from one designer. All the stamps by that designer will be reduced by 10% for that one week apart from one set which will have a 20% discount. No coupon is needed at check out, and you still can apply my personal discount code STAMPGIRLMONIKA -which doesn't expire, by the way- for an extra 20% off all stamps, dies and stencils!

As mentioned earlier, this week we are showcasing stamps designed by STAMPlorations owner Shery under her label 'Shery Russ Designs'. All her sets will be reduced by 10% and the Oh So Grateful Stamps And Coordinating Die set will be 20% off.

Of course Shery will still draw a winner at random from all the comments left on this month's Inspiration Posts over on the STAMPlorations Blog. Pop over to see what my teamies created and to leave a comment for your entry into their prize draw.

That's it from me for today. Have a lovely week!
