STAMPlorations Inspiration #116 - Shery Russ Designs

It's Inspiration Tuesday at STAMPlorations, and this week we're featuring Shery Russ Designs, the stamps made by Shery, the creator of STAMPlorations.  There's 10% off all her range this week, with 20% off Oh So Grateful stamps and coordinating die set - no coupon needed.

I've used the frame and a flower from Floral Bliss, and a sentiment from Blossom Overture.  I found a panel in my stash that just had gold paint on it.  I'm pretty sure it's Tarnished Brass Distress Paint, and I can't remember if I used a mini brayer or credit card, but either way, it was smeared onto the card.  I dipped and smooshed the card in Distress Inks (Aged Mahogany, Pickled Raspberry, Fossilised Amber, Frayed Burlap).  The gold paint resists the ink.  I coloured the flower with Distress Ink, and again the paint resisted the ink, giving a nice mottled appearance to the flower.

Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the Design Team, and don't forget to leave a comment there for your chance to win a $10 gift certificate.

Then pop over to the STAMPlorations store to browse Shery's stamps.  If you use my code STAMPGIRLSHIRLEY you'll get 20% off any stamps, dies or stencils in the store, even on sale prices!

  2. WOW! WOW! WOW! Another stunning creation that is SOOOOOO worthy of a frame and a special place on a wall! The colors are stunning!

  3. Love how you retrieved your gold background by adding more color with your DI's and stamped image. So artsy and wonderful. TFS Shirley. Hugs

  4. Looks like a mixed media creation which I absolutely love. Hugs Jo

  6. All those lovely pinks added to the gold are delicious, Shirley ... so very pretty! Hugs, Anita :)

  7. Beautiful.
    Love the background.
    Framing the flower is a
    great idea.
    thanks for sharing.
