STAMPlorations Inspiration #123


It's Inspiration Tuesday on the STAMPlorations blog, and today we're featuring Becca's range of stamps, Big Grins.  I made a get well card using the pterodactyl from Dino Things.  I smooshed the background with Distress Inks, then stamped, watercoloured and fussy-cut the pterodactyl.  I only adhered the lower body, then bent the wings away from the card for a bit of movement.

I'm entering this into the CAS Mix Up Challenge, where it's their first birthday - happy birthday, girls, and congratulations on a fantastic challenge blog!

I've gone for stamping, smooshing and fussy cutting (and watercolouring).

Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog for some more fabulous inspiration.  There's 10% off Becca's stamps all week, and 20% off Buttercups and Butterflies.  And if you use my code STAMPGIRLSHIRLEY you'll get another 20% off all stamps, stencils and dies in the store.

ETA:
I'm also playing along at Inkspirational, where the designer's choice is watercolour smooshing.  Thanks for the prompt, Carol!

  1. Your feel-better pterodactyl is fabulous; he certainly has me smiling! I'd be thrilled if you flew him over to Inkspirational Challenges, where smooshing is our theme. He'd be warmly welcomed in the gallery! Here's the link: http://inkspirationalchallenges.blogspot.ca/2017/03/challenge-130-designers-choice.html
