Saturday Spot

Today I'm playing along with the CAS Challenge at STAMPlorations.

Mmmm, lilac is a shade of purple right? Well no wonder I had to play then!

I used two colours of ink and a faux watercolour technique for my card. It couldn't be more simple and I love the muted slightly blurry image it gives! I placed the stamp onto my misti tool and then inked it up, spritzed it with water and stamped one colour, then the other and repeated the stamping and spritzing until i was happy with the result.

I finished it all off with a sweet sentiment and matted it onto a lilac card base.

Stamsp: STAMPlorations, In Bloom: Floral Bliss Trio, Fond Expressions 2
Inks: Ranger distress oxide, seedless preserves; ColorBox, grape; Versafine Clair, nocturne

Huge thanks for your visit today, I really appreciate you taking the time.

And keep crafting!
