Papertrey Ink 9th Anniversary - Day 2 - Dress Up Inspiration

Day two of Papertrey Ink's Anniversary celebrations introduced a new line of products of dress up dolls, what fun! The challenge is to create a card using an item of clothing from your closet or an item found on line as your inspiration. I went through my closet, which is filled mostly with solid coloured items, and came up with this t-shirt that screamed ink smooshing to me. This was a fun challenge and fit well with my current lack of supplies.

Here is the inspiration piece:

I smooshed my inks one colour at a time in the general area that I wanted to stamp my images and then stamped the flowers and leaves over top. Added a sentiment and done!

Stamps - Doodlie-do, Keep It Simple: Thinking of You (PTI)
Paper - Stampers Select White (PTI)
Die - Stitched Rectangle (Lil Inkers)
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Pear, Sky, Gypsy, Cotton Candy (CTMH)
Other - mister, acetate sheet
