Wohooo!! it took a while to sink in... This happy news happened towards the end of June and to keep it a secret was a tough job. Not any more!! So, the news is that I am on the design team of STAMPlorations. STAMPlorations is a fairly new stamp company started by Shery Russ in June 2013. She is popular in the blog land for her artistic Mixed media cards. The stamps from STAMPlorations are unique and artsy and help you in creating some of the most gorgeous cards.
My first experience with these stamps began when I won a stamp set at CASology. I truly loved the quality of their clear stamps both in terms of stickiness and ink coverage. Then surprisingly I was invited by Shery to join there STAMPlorations Birthday blog hop and it was during that time , Shery asked me to join the team. I was like are you serious!! I was in total disbelief LOL. And the rest is history, I am officially on their team now :) Hope I will exceed Shery's expectations and will be able to give you some good inspiration to look forward to.
So now comes the challenge and my card, it's a Bi-weekly Sketch challenge #16. This challenge ends on August 1st and the winners would be announced on August 5th.
I love the VIGNETTE - Tree Silhouette stamp set and wanted to showcase them. The tree are so beautiful and very realistic. To make the card, I masked the card creating a vertical panel, then I Inked it with distress inks. I removed the mask and Stamped the trees in two shades of blue. Finally, I heat embossed the tree and the sentiment from VIGNETTE - Trendy Feathers. To finish the card I added some sequins.
I am entering this card to a few challenges - Color Me #29, ABNH #48 - Sheet Cake, The Paper Players #205 - Monochromatic CAS and Curtain Call - Anything Goes!
