STAMPlorations Inspiration #47


Quite often I'll put watercoloured cards under a pile of heavy boxes to flatten out overnight.  Or longer.... Quite often I'll forget all about them, until I come to put the latest card under the boxes.  So it was a nice surprise to find this card, which I'd made for the STAMPlorations October Release blog hop, promptly forgot about it, and made a different card for the hop.

I'd smooshed the card through some spritzed Distress Inks, and coloured the butterfly panel (Hope Blooms) with the same inks.  Stamped the sentiment (Hope Blooms) and the numbers image (Mixed Media Elements), then put it under the boxes to flatten...

Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog to check out what the rest of the Design Team have created for your inspiration, and if it moves you to CASE any of our cards, why not add them to the CASE playground for a chance to win prizes?

  2. Isn't 'forgotten treasure' exciting? Sad for me, it seems that items can turn to 'treasures' within 1/2 hour of putting them away!!!

    Gorgeous colors - so soft and so beautifully smooshed! The ticker-tape number strip is really neat-o mosquito!
