STAMPlorations Inspiration #281


It's Tuesday so we've got some more inspiration for you at STAMPlorations.  My inspiration comes from the Autumn 2020 edition of Somerset Studio magazine.  The face, the flowers, the bold title, the colour scheme (although my flowers are paler).

I stencilled the Pensive face onto my card panel with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink, then added some loose watercolouring with Crushed Velvet and Bundled Sage.  I stamped the Fabulous and the rest of the sentiment from Groovy Shoes in Memento inks, but the paler ink didn't really stand out enough so I gave it a drop shadow using coloured pencil.  Then I added some splatters :)  Oh, and a touch of blusher.

Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the team, and don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win a $15 gift code to the new store.  You can get 20% off your purchases in the main store and digi store when you use my code STAMPGIRLSHIRLEY.

I'm entering this into Inkspirational where the word prompt is Face.
