STAMPlorations Inspiration #267

Hello, it's Inspiration Tuesday at STAMPlorations, and today I've got a mixed media card for you.  I started off by stencilling clear paste through the Tribal Triangles stencil, then once it was dry I sponged Distress Inks over. The inks didn't blend very smoothly on this particular card, and it had a mottled appearance, so I embraced that by spritzing all over with water and lifting more of the ink for a definite mottled look.

Using a variety of stamps from Mixed Media Grunge, Scribbly Splattery Grunge and Mixed Media Elements and the same ink colours, I stamped randomly over the panel.  Then for contrast, using Versafine Onyx Black I stamped Happy Birthday from Baa Baa, Mmmm from And Coffee and the circles from Art Marks 2.  My focal image is from Sketchy Coffee Cups.
