STAMPlorations Inspiration #113

It's our first Inspiration Tuesday of 2017 over at STAMPlorations, and the new year brings changes.  Each Tuesday we'll focus on one designer's stamps, and this week it's me!!  Now pay attention, because Shery will be offering great discounts on each featured designer's stamps, with a special discount on one stamp set.

So, from 3-9 January, all of my stamp sets (The Bee's Knees) are 10% off (no coupon needed).

Plus, World Birthday Cakes is 20% off (no coupon needed).

But that's not all.  If you use my code STAMPGIRLSHIRLEY (not case sensitive - I just wanted to draw your attention to it ;) ) when ordering, you'll get an extra 20%!  You can use the code any time to get 20% off any stamps, dies or stencils that you order - even on sale items!  

And as if all that wasn't enough, there'll be a monthly random drawing - 1 commenter wins a $10 gift certificate.  So when you pop over to the STAMPlorations blog, don't forget to leave a comment before you pop on over to look at The Bee's Knees stamps.

Oh, my card.  I stamped Folk Flowers images onto mixed media paper, then watercoloured with Distress Inks.  Rather than apply solid colour, I painted some loose petal shapes within the flowers.  I drew around the images with a Stabilo All pencil then smudged it with a wet brush.  Added a few white pen dots and called it done.
