STAMPlorations Guest Designer for July

I am so excited to be guest designing for STAMPlorations this month. Congratulations to Shery Russ, the owner of STAMPlorations who is celebrating the company's 3rd year anniversary!!  I used the theme: Stamps and Stars and the sketch for July for my card.  Click HERE to see the challenges for July.

The sentiment is from the Bloom Sketches stamp set. I used my Memory Box star stencil to create a monoprint. I smooshed Distress Inks directly onto the stencil, misted it with water, placed my watercolor paper onto the stencil and then lifted the paper up and let it dry.

I cut the main panel from the monoprint with Simon Says Stamps stitched rectangle die, matted it with shimmery blue card stock and adhered it back to the original monoprint panel. I matted the sentiment with the same cardstock.

Thank you Shery for the opportunity to be a guest designer for STAMPlorations!

  3. This. Is. AMAZING! The way that wash overflows the center panel gives this such a funky cool flair. Totally Pinning this so I can drool over it again later. Thanks for guesting with us at STAMPlorations and showing off your talent!
