New Challenge at Inkspirational!

Hi friends!

We have a new, fun challenge for you over at Inspirational: use patterned or designer paper with the optional twist of stamping on patterned paper. I was very inspired of the twist but in the end didn't stamp but used a Simon Says Stamp stencil over a monochrome designer paper that has a very beautiful ombre color. I used white pigment ink for sponging the stenciled design and I really like the look it created. I added a close-up photo so you could see the stenciling a bit better, it's a bit hard to see in the top of the card because the paper is almost white there... But IRL the look is very subtle and pretty. The sentiment is heat embossed with white on vellum, it's in Finnish and says "Today is your day". The feather die I've once received as a freebie with a crafty magazine.

Our guest designer this time is Kathy, don't miss her card or the DT cards -click here! I hope to see you playing along!
