Graffiti Stamping

Hello everyone! Today is quite exciting because I am going to be designing once again for the fantastic challenge blog Inkspirational. I would like to thank Marina for the invitation - I couldn't say no :)

Well, the first challenge I have come back to was a little puzzling to me because I had never heard of this technique before!



I was thinking..... huh??? But, I did a googly search and found some really interesting ideas. It actually wasn't as hard as it first looks.

Here is my card.


I really loved how this turned out! I used my MISTI to place my first large stamp - the Happy from HLS Everyday Sentiments. I used that as my 'base' for my other stamps. I decided to stamp on an angle. I used a variety of sentiment stamps which included Everyday Sentiments, Mix Mash, Bold Birthday Sentiments and Fun Birthday Sentiments. The funny thing was that once I started I didn't want to stop. I had so many fun stamps! 

I stamped with archival inks in Jet Black, Watering Can, Cornflower Blue, Sap Green, Viridian, and Aquamarine. I love how this would be perfect for a masculine card because I really struggle with those!!

This is also a ONE LAYER card so it is perfect for mailing!

I hope to see you over at Inkspirational for this challenge because it is a really fun technique that you should try :)

Thanks for popping in today :)
