STAMPlorations Special Release Day 1

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's release week over at STAMPlorations. They are introducing 4 stamp sets perfect for Spring themed cards and more ...

Here are my DT pieces for DAY 1 featuring Layered Vase designed by Shirley aka The Bee's Knees ...

My first card has been simply stamped using some of my Izink inks. Whenever I use them on new stamps the ink pearls a bit and doesn't give a solid coverage when stamping. I rather like the effect for artsy cards with splatters. The colours I used are: Grenadine and Cerise for the flowers, Verveine and Menthe for the leaves and Mer Du Sud for the vase.

My second card uses a partially stamped and gold embossed vase with a bit of watercolouring.

Here is Shirley's new set ...
