It's inspiration time from the STAMPlorations Inspiration Team! I'm joining the girls today for another batch of cards to CASE.
To create my card, I took a panel that's smaller than my card base and used stamps from the Mixed Media Grunge set to create the background. (It's the April/May 2015 stamp club set that will be available in the shop beginning on the first week of April.) I toned down the brown with a thin layer of gesso. Once the gesso dried, I scribbled Gelatos (mango, lemon, metallic mint, and lavender) and blended the colors with my finger. I placed the Honeycomb Delight ARTplorations stencil on the panel, took a baby wipe, and proceeded to wipe away some of the colors through the stencil. Next I took a black watercolor pencil and traced inside the hexagons and ran a damp brush over it to blend the color a bit. I cut the panel in two, distressed the edges, and applied coffee archival ink around before adhering the panels to my card base. The sentiment is from Hashtag Authentic.
