Welcome to our mid-month STAMPlorations challenge reminder post. As you may have noted, this year we are not doing separate reminder posts for each challenge, but instead doing one inspiration filled reminder post. I hope this will inspire you to play along with our STAMPlorations challenges in case you haven't already (and if you have, the challenges allow you to link up multiple times if you happen to get inspired again!)
Our CAS challenge optional colour twist this month is black, and I thought a black background would be perfect to show off gold splatters and the blingtastic stamps from Sparkly. I stamped the jewels in Versamark and heat embossed in gold, coloured them with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils and added some details in white gel pen. I used an old Stampin' Up stamp to stamp the splatters in Versamark and heat embossed in gold. Last, I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of purple ombre card from my stash.
