STAMPlorations, a reminder

Good afternoon all.
Just stopping by to remind you all that there is still time to enter the STAMPlorations  April Theme/Sketch Challenge.
Here is my card using just the theme this time.


Don't forget you can use either the sketch or theme or both!

        

For my themed card I went with a very subtle splatter effect around the flowers rather than filling in the background. I just diluted some Salty Ocean DI and after masking off the flowers, I used a paint brush to flick splatters in the area I wanted, all very understated! The flowers from Dee's Blooming Buds set were stamped on some linen textured card in Memento London Fog and then cut a rectangle from the middle using a MFT pierced rectangle die. Keeping the outer to one side and free from ink, I painted in the flowers with a mix of Picked Raspberry Shabby, Shutters and Fossilized Amber DIs. The sentiment is from Dee's Balloons and Banners set, stamped in black.
When the coloured panel was finished I trimmed the main panel and popped it up the central rectangle up on pads.

So that's my project, please check out the main blog for all those Ts and Cs and details of all the other DT projects as well as this month's fab GDs, Ashwini and Mac Mable.

I'd like to join in over at -

  7. A very pretty card, Julie. I really like the look of the DIs on the linen paper. The colored image over the lined image is always a favorite look. Thanks for playing along with the Paper Players this week.

  8. This is such a very pretty card. I love how you arranged those flowers and only colored your popped up panel. Brave of you to splatter. I always ruin whatever I have done when I try to splatter, so have given it up. Thanks so much for playing along at HLS Case the Designer and for CASEing me.
