STAMPlorations Sketch #21


It's stretch-a-sketch time for me again at STAMPlorations ;)  Here's what it should look like:


Flip it, tilt it, got it?  I stamped the poppies stamp from Bloom Sketches in Antique Linen Distress Ink, then watercoloured with Mustard Seed, Wild Honey and Peeled Paint.  Sloshed a bit of Wild Honey on the background, then partially stamped one of the images from Patchwork Frenzy: Graphic Pentagons randomly all over the background.  I went back and overstamped the painted poppies in black.  The sentiment is from Sentiment Builders: Happy.

Our guest designer is the very talented Elaine of Craft-E-Place.  Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog to see the gorgeous inspiration from the rest of the design team and Elaine.

Don't forget if you're playing along using STAMPlorations stamps to also enter your card into the Anything Goes open challenge.

I'm entering mine into AAA Cards Watercolour challenge.


and Bizzy Becs October challenge - Anything Goes.
