Guest Designer STAMPlorations ...

I have been lucky, once again, to be offered a Guest Designer spot ... this time by Shery at STAMPlorations ... as always I am honoured and as always a little bit apprehensive about doing it!

This month's CAS Challenge is:

This is the card I created and I hope it inspires you to join in!

I began by stamping the flowers down the edge of the card before water colouring with distress inks.  I tried to be 'arty' and not colour the flowers in full I hoped that by leaving some white space it might add more texture and an element of realism.  I added a strip of the distress ink down the fold to add some balance to the design. I used a simple sentiment stamp before popping up the top panel using some fun foam.  As a final flourish I added a few pink splatters!

I used:
STAMPlorations Floral Bliss Stamp set
Distress Ink - Picked Raspberry

I hope that I have inspired you to have a go and enter the challenge.
