Hello stampers! Today's card is for Hand Stampded Sentimeiments November Sketch Challenge designed my ME! I hope you'll be able to join us and use this fun sketch!
I love to mix challenges for extra inspiration, so I'm also playing along with As You See It #239. The challenge here is to use a color that you avoid. That color for me is any form of purple. I usually cringe when purple is in the inpiration for any challenge, but then I must confess, that I usually end up liking my creations in the end. That's what happened with this one. I like the way this turned out! I always think, "well, that wasn't so bad!".
Anyway, I watercolored Gorgeous Grape and Flirty Flamingo on a Stitched Nested Label cut out with watercolor paper. I added salt to the wet paper, dried it, and scraped the salt off after it was dried. The salt absorbs the ink and leaves a "starburst" sort of pattern. I also flicked water onto the panel and mopped it up with a dry paper towel. After that I splattered Wink of Stella onto the label. Finally, I stamped and embossed the stars on there and spritzed the whole thing with glimmer spritz. It's very sparkly in real life!
I also used the inspiration from Try Stampin On Tuesday...use the word MERRY.
Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
