The challenge for July at Stamplorations is to use stamps and distressing. I took it in the direction of using distress inks, I find when using the ink to stamp it gives an uneven distressed look to my images. I did a smoosh water color effect on water color paper for my tag and after it dried I started stamping my flowers and leaves. These are all from one of the newest set at Stamplorations which I just ordered, it is called Frames and Flowers. I also stamped and fussy cut some of the flowers so that I could layer them and create some dimension.
I love this layout and it is courtesy of this week's sketch challenge at The Paper Players .
For the inside I placed two of the foliage stamps on my block and created my own corner embellishment.
Although I am cutting it close on both of these challenges, you still have a couple of days to enter, why don't you join me? Thanks for the visit, hope to see you again soon.
