STAMPlorations Inspiration #100


It's our 100th STAMPlorations Inspiration post, and to mark the occasion, Shery has organised a little giveaway.  One lucky commenter, chosen randomly, will get their choice of any of the 4x6 stamp sets that the design team have used.

My card was totally inspired by the illustrations of Jaesukkim, so I thought I'd have a go using my Party Dresses stamps and Brusho powders.  This was the first attempt.  Second attempt wasn't as good - ended up in the bin, third attempt ok.  But that's the thing with Brushos, it might turn out really well, it might not.

I stamped the tailor's dummy, then inked the dress, but not the hemline, and stamped.  Painted the bodice with water, sprinkled Brushos, painted the skirt, sprinkled Brushos, spritzed.  Voila!

The sentiment is from CityGirl.

Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog for more serious eye candy, and don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win a 4x6 stamp set.
