exploration STAMPlorations sketched: simple gift (Craft Stamper, YNS, Seize the Birthday)

For day 3 of my exploration STAMPlorations, I'm working with this stamp set,

SKETCHED: Simple Gift

this card of Shelly K.'s which inspired me, and these challenges:

Seize the Birthday - Stars and Stripes (no toppings for me on this card)


Craft Stamper Take it Make it - Emboss Resist



Created two masks of the gift, placed them on the CS and stamped the sentiment randomly. When dry, I heat embossed the gifts and then inked them with rainbow colors. Put the masks back on and splattered with black Heidi Swapp spray ink. Rounded two corners and I was done.

I'm lovin' these sketchy stamps for artsy techniques like distress inking or watercoloring. More rainbow action coming your way tomorrow... And rumor has it there might be a giveaway ;)

Thanks for looking.
