STAMPlorations Inspiration #48 - A Flower-filled Barrow


I've been playing with Deepti's set Friends and Flowers, and this pretty little flower-filled barrow image was calling out for a bit of watercolouring and splattering.  I stamped the image onto mixed media paper and painted the images using Distress Inks.  I added a sentiment from The Birds and The Blooms, a bit of splattering, a bit of machine stitching, and it's done.  BTW, I only ever machine stitch through one layer before I mount it onto the base card: (a) it's easier and (b) there's less damage if it goes wrong!

Pop on over to the blog to see more inspiration from the rest of the team, and why not play along at our CASEplorations challenge if you fancy CASE-ing this card or any of the design team's inspiration cards.

I'm playing along at AAA Cards - Anything Goes.

  9. Very pretty card - I love all the subtle touches of texture on the base card combined with the stitching and "torn" paper edge - a great combination of elements that complement the pretty focal image perfectly! Jill

  10. Love this. Love the color and texture of the base. The touch of sewing on top is wonderful and the spatters on the white panel. Great coloring too. Thanks so much for linking up and playing with us at AAA Cards.
