Stampendous: Feeling Inspired

As we head to the beginning of a new year, we tend to give more thought to change. Change in ourselves. Change in the world. What needs to be changed. How can I be a part of that change. The world can be a scary place, and various events worldwide seem to add to that frightened feeling. We want ourselves to feel safe, but more so, we want our children to feel safe.

Personally, I wish that everyone would be inspired to truly care about one another, without stereotyping, without prejudice, without judgement. So, my post today is inspired by a desire for PEACE.

This card was created using a ink resist technique. The Stampendous Dove Music Cling Stamp was inked with Versamark ink and stamped on glossy white cardstock. I used a Kaleidacolor inkpad (Tahiti) to ink a brayer, and roll the ink over the panel until I'd built up enough color to please me. I wiped a paper towel over the surface, which aided in removed any ink on top of the image, and the design comes through. I brayered the same ink over the Cling Music Score stamp, and rolled it on a panel of regular white cardstock, which transferred the design along with the ink. A stamped scroll design was added, and everything was added in layers to my card, along with a good sprinkling of Stampendous Color Fragments in Teal and Hot Lime. The cut out bird was edged with a teal marker which helps it to pop off of the background.

What are you inspired by, and for what purpose? Blessings to all...


We hope that you've been inspired to link your creations to the Stampendous challenge for December. You can find the details HERE.

This is absolutely gorgeous!! LOVE the brilliant colors!
I am inspired to treat others as I wish to be treated NOT how they treat me! I am trying to turn the other cheek and be the bigger person in the new year! No time left in life for petty insecurities and anger. I am removing the negative sources from my little part of the world and striving for HAPPY~
Merry Christmas to you and yours! Thank you for always sharing such amazing creations with me throughout the year! I am often in awe! <3
