STAMPlorations release - layered vase


There's a new release in town. Over at the STAMPlorations shop. Have you seen it?

We're inspiring you today with Layered Vase, another addition to Shirley B's collection of sketchy, layered stamp sets.


Oh my goodness - the possibilities. I have no idea how Shirley comes up with these things, but I have a total blast playing with them. Ready for card #1?

Distress inks

Pretty straightforward. A vase of tulips as intended ;) Just used my MISTI to ink up the solid images separately with  yellow, pink and blue, creating those additional color areas where those three tones overlapped.

Then, of course, I had to think outside the box. I love to turn Shirley's sets upside down or sideways to see what I see. What do you see? I saw fish! And even seaweed!

Distress inks

Basically a similar technique here. Used my MISTI to ink the solid shapes separately (one fish rainbowed and two with Dried Marigold and Spiced Marmelade).

Added to my underwater scene with some circles traced through a stencil and some seaweed along the ocean floor. SUCH fun.

Hope you enjoy today's post. Be sure to check out all the DT's creations over at the STAMP blog. And leave comments, there are prizes to be won - a $20 gift code and a stamp set from the release.

In addition, the four new stamp sets being released are 10% off automatically until February 19. If you use my STAMPGIRLMARIA designers' code you'll get an extra 20% off too!

Thanks for stopping by. I'm stopping by at Craft Stamper Take it Make it for February and also Happy Little Stampers - CAS
