Hello, it's Inspiration Tuesday at STAMPlorations, and I'm always looking for inspiration for sympathy cards. I don't like to make them too bright, but neither do I like to make them too dull and insipid.
Today I went for pinks. I started by masking the left and bottom margins of the white card, and sponged Victorian Velvet distress ink in the lower left-hand corner, then stamped the images from Beautiful You in the same ink. Unfortunately the washi tape that I'd masked with was quite absorbent and the stems seeped through, so I chopped off the lower margin, stamped the flower sprig in black, added the sentiment from Blossom Overture and mounted the cropped panel onto pink hammered card.
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 store. If you use my code STAMPGIRLSHIRLEY when you're shopping there you can get 20% off too - yay!
