Summer Card Camp 2 - Day 2

Hi everyone! 

 I'm back today with another card from class and oh, my gosh, I love how it turned out! Sorry, I don't usually say that about my cards - I always feel like I'm being boastful and shouldn't do that, but I had so much fun creating it and am so happy with the results!

Shari Carroll was one of the guest designers today - need I say more? I adore her work and just HAD TO try her "drippy paint" technique. 

First, here is a photo of the supplies I used.


The stamps are from two different, Stamp Your Story sets from Hero Arts. That stamp at the top of the photo is what I inked up to create my painted "stripes." 


I spritzed with lots of water after inking up the stamp each time, then dragged the stamp down the paper and let it drip - sooo fun!

Shari used much lighter colors but I wanted to go bold, and am glad I did. :)

Thanks for the visit!
