STAMPlorations monthly challenge is SPONGING. There's also a sketch to play along with, too!
Just look at the drama of those colors coming together. I had a ton of fun dreaming up the color scheme for this one.
Here's the challenge info: Head to STAMPlorations. Use ANY stamps you want from ANY company you want. Use the sketch, or the challenge, or BOTH.
And I'm gonna show you exactly what I did to make this magic happen.
Firstly, I got out some bright, sunny yellow ink in the form of Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink and I used a sponge to rub it all over a piece of white cardstock.
Then I used the STAMPlorations Mixed Media Grunge stamp set to add in bits of grungy ink. I used a few different types of stamps from the set and a few different colors of ink.
Theeeeeen I used the Leaf Prints 2 ARTploration stencil to add in some vibrant orange. OOoo!
Lastly, I used the CUTplorations Happy Word die and stamped a sentiment from Party Time to complete the look. After I cut out the Happy, I sponged it up to match my card and added a bit o' Wink of Stella to give it a special glisteny sheen.
Now head on over to STAMPlorations to play along!
Speaking of playing along, my sponged piece o' cardstock is going to head over to the following challenges:
Seize the Birthday - Any Toppings this go-round!
Aud Sentiments - ATG plus a sentiment
