Saturday Spot

I'm back playing at STAMPlorations today, but this time for their Theme and Sketch Challenge.


Here's my card:

I started by stamping and heat embossing the quote and then used distress inks in pink and yellow to watercolour the background. I simply applied the ink to an acrylic bloc, spritzed it with water and used a brush to add it to the card. Once this had dried I die cut the panel.

I stamped some background grafitti marks  using grey ink to make a border to showcase the word quote. I added the three arrows from the sketch in darker ink and used a dry wet wipe - a bit of a contradiction in terms - to add some hints of pink and yellow. I then went back to the main quote block and used one of those really wide brushes to add a bit of grey there too.

Stamps: STAMPlorations, Subway Art Builders Dare, Art Marks
Inks: Versamark clear + Ranger superfine black embossing powder; Ranger distress, picked raspberry, mustard seed; Memento, tuxedo black; SU, smoky slate

Thanks so much for looking today, it's always so lovely to have a bit of company.

And keep crafting!
