I just had to play along when I saw Ksenija's Gorgeous Coffee Mug card for this months CASEplorations Challenge. Here is her beauty!
My card is for the STAMPlorations Never Ending Anything Goes Challenge too. I used Trendy Leaves stamp set by STAMPlorations and Smile die cut by CUTplorations.
I used my MISTI to line up my Trendy Leaves and stamped several times using Distress Inks going from light to dark shades. I then splattered my panel using the same colors and a paint brush. Sponging around the leaves and adding sequins.
I had fun with the Die Cut Smile. Sponged the same colors as I used for my leaves onto mixed media paper and Die Cut. Next I die cut a layer of mixed media and a layer of Early Espresso CS, which gave the Smile more thickness and a shadow effect. I used my Fine Tip Glue Pen to attach layers and sequins. I splattered the Smile for the last touch.
Enjoy and thank you Ksenija and STAMPlorations for all your Inspiration. Hugs..
