STAMPlorations 2nd Birthday Blog Hop - Day 5


It's our final day of the STAMPlorations 2nd Birthday Blog Hop.  Hope you've enjoyed seeing all the different creations with these fabulous new stamps!


For today's card I applied Distress Paints in Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass and a touch of Mustard Seed, spritzed them and watched them merge into each other seamlessly.  Then I stamped the images from Party Mates and lifted out some of the colour with a pet paintbrush.  I stamped the sentiment on a strip of white card then added it across the panel.

Our Guest Designer for this final day of the hop is the amazing Jennifer Ingle!  Check out what Jennifer and the rest of the team made! You'll find links to all birthday blog hop projects here.
