June is here! That means we have a new trio of challenges for you at STAMPlorations: 2 sketch challenges -first one begins now and the second one on the 16th of June- and a monthly challenge beginning on the 6th of June. Enter all three and in addition to others prizes you have a change to win a monthly prize pack which is 3 Tim Holtz stencils, image below. Fun, right? Check out STAMplorations challenge blog for all the details for how to play along.
I've used two STAMPlorations stamp sets in my card: SENTIMENT BUILDERS: Happy and Distressed Floral Swirls. Below is a photo of my patterned paper before stamping:
I stamped the distressed floral swirls with clear embossing powder and after heat setting it sponged the whole paper with DI Walnut Stain to cover up some of the blues and greens of the paper. The ink didn't cover up the black stripes but I think the look is quite funky! The sentiment is heat embossed with gold powder on vellum and I finished my card with golden sequins. Hope you like! There's brilliant DT inspiration in the challenge blog, I hope you'll check out everyone's cards... Without forgetting our guest designer Monika! Happy crafting!
