STAMPlorations inspiration #38

Looking for inspiration for those older STAMPlorations stamp sets? Take a look at today's post over on the blog.

I pulled out one of my favorites, Vignette: It's your Day, lovingly referred to as "wonky cake" by me ;) My sentiment is from The Bee's Knees World Birthday Cakes.

Inspired by my cardmaking hero's ink smooshing, I was. Heat embossed the cake with Leaf Zing embossing powder. Then smooshed Fossilized Amber, Shabby Shutters and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Inks. Added a strip of washi up top and adhered the watercolor panel to a cardbase covered with a PP from Amy Tangerine's Plus One 12x12 pad. You may notice I ran a yellow inkpad around the edges of the PP for a little more funk on this funky card.

Want to give ink smooshing a try. It's fun. CASE my card and hook up at the Inspiration CASE Playground before October 5th. There are prizes ;) And stop by tomorrow for another ink smooshed lovely.

Happy weekend.
