STAMPlorations Blog Hop - Balloons and Banners


Ooh, sloshing and splattering!  Welcome back to day 2 of the STAMPlorations July stamp release blog hop.  Today we're showcasing Deepti's set, Balloons and Banners:


I love making sloshy banners!  I used the reverse of the semi-circular and and line pennant, and then the others the correct way round.  I lined them all up on my acrylic block and stamped into a palette of Fired Brick, Festive Berries, Warm Honey and Mustard Seed, and spritzed before stamping.  Then splattered ;)

Here's another version.  The Distress Inks had got watered down by this stage, making a softer image, so I doodled around the banners.


For some fabulous inspiration, check out what the rest of the team made here.  And don't forget about prizes:

  • FIVE (5) commenters randomly drawn from the designers' blogs will each win the stamp set featured for the day.
  • ONE (1) commenter randomly drawn from the STAMPlorations blog will win a $25 gift certificate.
So don't forget to leave a comment at each stop, and pop back tomorrow for more STAMPlorations goodness from Shery.
