This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is an inspiration challenge. The image that inspired me most was the sky background. I used the acrylic block stamped background technique to create the background for my card. Click here for a tutorial on this technique.
I used ink colors Coastal Cabana, Marina Mist and Wisteria Wonder on water-color paper. The flourishes are stamped in Night of Navy. I like how the ink looks on the texture of the water-color paper. For extra sparkle, I used Dazzling Details all over the background image and flourishes and added rhinestones colored with Coastal Cabana blendable markers. The ribbon is Lost Lagoon. It was just the right layer for my “thanks” sentiment.
Here are the inspiration images from Hand Stamped Sentiments. I hope you join us for the challenge.
All products are Stampin’ Up! unless noted.
