STAMPlorations Inspiration #143

Inspiration time at STAMPlorations again, and this week we're featuring Becca's stamps.  I've used some of the images from Sweet and Sassy Mom to create this panel, which was inspired by some artwork I found on Pinterest.

I started off by stamping the images in Antique Linen then painted in the background and stalks using Distress Oxides.  I used Hickory Smoke to watercolour the shading on the petals (which are white space on the card), then got the Distress Markers out.  When I first got my Distress Markers I was underwhelmed by them, but recently I've enjoyed scribbling with them using the fine tip.  I start off neat, but I always end up sloshing or scribbling - or both!

All of Becca's stamps are 10% off for the next week (no coupon needed), and this set, Sweet and Sassy Mom, is 20% off (no coupon needed).  Use my code STAMPGIRLSHIRLEY and you'll get a further 20% off, so get shopping!


  1. Wow, this is so pretty. It is like a painting you would see in an art gallery. The way you shaded and outlined the petals, they look popped up from the page.

  2. Jaw dropping moment! Shirley, this is fabulous, Jo x

  3. Holy wow. I love how those distress oxides look all painterly. Definitely going to have to give this a go.

  4. Stunning...looks like a beautiful painting.

  5. Beautiful painting.
    The flowers really pop.
    thanks for sharing.
