I've been drawing inspiration from the Dare to Get Dirty 2014 challenges posted on Splitcoast Stampers to get inspired to stamp this week. This is one of the card that was born out of combining a few different challenges. I really like this color combo, it feels very fresh and summery to me. As I was choosing a sentiment for my design, I decided it would be a good idea to have an extra wedding card on hand, since I don't have a whole lot of those. I picked the beautiful two-steps Stippled Blossoms stamp set as my main images.
To create the card background, I stamped the Hardwood background stamp on Smoky Slate cardstock using Basic Grey ink and then sponged some Basic Grey ink on the design to enhance the weathered wood look. I then used the new Dots & Stripes masks sold by SU! to spritz dots over the wood pattern using Silver Smooch Spray (now retired).
