STAMPlorations Inspiration #124

It's Inspiration Tuesday at STAMPlorations, and this week we're focusing on Deepti's stamps.  I've used the watering can from Friends and Flowers for my card, along with the middle-sized Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle nesting die.

The background panel is a smooshing of Pickled Raspberry, Mustard Seed and Inka Gold paste.  I stamped the image over the background then watercoloured it with Distress Inks (Brushed Pewter for the watering can).

Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the rest of the design team, and don't forget to leave a comment there for your chance to win a gift certificate to the store.

For the next week, Deepti's stamps are 10% off, apart from Power of Words, which is 20% off.  And if you use my code STAMPGIRLSHIRLEY you'll get an extra 20% off any stamps, dies and stencils in the store.  Bargain!

I'm entering this into CAS Mix Up 1st Birthday Celebrations - Stamping + Smooshing + my choice of watercolouring.  And die-cutting.

And also CAS Watercolour Challenge, where the theme is Spring.
