STAMPlorations inspiration #61

Channeled my inner Mayuri (after taking her Craftsy class) to do some "kaleidescope stamping" with this stamp set and some Distress inks in beachy colors of blue, orange and yellow.

Love Letter in the Sand

Was going to stamp my sentiment on a circle and adhere it over the points where the seashells all met, but then decided to die cut a window and stamp the sentiment inside. I like how it turned out. One layer, ya know?!?

To make it a bit more beachy, I stamped some grungy dots from Mixed Media Grunge and watercolored over them with more brown. Took my leftover DI/water mix from the acrylic block and flicked it onto my card front.


There's lots more STAMPlorations inspiration for your enjoyment here. Thanks for coming by.

I'm heading over to Paper Players #282.
