Feeling Inspired...


I was browsing through Pinterest and I came across a few ideas for using a stamp set I had, it inspired me to have a play..

The stamp set is Wherever You Go by Stampin' Up, a lot of people used the bridge with the compass stamped behind it and I liked that.

I decided to create a blended background and pulled out all the blue distress inks I have and went to work..I cheated a bit by using a stripe stencil, so I could control the colour application easier.

Once I had the background, I went over it with white ink, then spritzed it and dabbed it with a piece of kitchen town. It gives that softer mottled look.

I stamped the bridge, the compass and the sentiment using my Misti, so I could do it all in one hit!

I thought the black cardblank was perfect for making my panel pop.

Super simple make, I had fun with the background.



  1. really cool looking card...nice visual depth in the bkg.
    happy stamping,

  2. Stunning card, love the ombré background. You're more than welcome to have a rummage through my die mountain any time!

  3. That's not cheating using the stripe stencil that's brilliant!
