NBUS STAMPlorations goodies



My explorations into my brand new goodies from STAMPlorations continues (I tried my first CUTplorations die yesterday here in case you missed it). There's nothing that gets the creative mojo going like being away from the craft room for almost a week - it seems like I have been creating on a roll for the last few days.

I stared by stamping the Framed Zinnia in Versamark Onyx Black (which is compatible with watercolouring). I then coloured the flowers using my Gansai Tambi watercolours using the colours from this week's ColourQ. I then masked the frame and stamped around the edges using several stamps from the Mixed Media Elements in Squeezed Lemonade and Spiced Marmalade Distress ink. I also sprinkled some watercolour splotches on the card. Last, I used one of my brand new CUTplorations Awesome Word Die to die cut the sentiment from a scrap of purple card. Last, I stamped the first line of the sentiment in black ink to complete the card.
