More from Taylored Expressions

Here's another new (to me) goodie from Taylored Expressions:

TE Thinking of You

supplies: Hero Arts Blush layering paper as card base, watercolor paper, Taylored Expressions Fancy Banner 2 Stamp and die combo, markers to color, worn lipstick distress ink, Winnie & Walter Audrey Cutaway 

This stamp and die combo is another of the choices I made for a win at the Share Joy challenge recently - I thought this little banner would come in handy for lots of occasions.  Today I simply smooshed some worn lipstick distress ink on an acrylic block, spritzed it with water, and then "stamped" it onto a watercolor panel, letting the ink flow where it wanted to.  This is a technique that Shari Carroll came up with years ago, and gives you a little more control when you want a smooshed background.

There are 6 different sentiments in this cute little set, so I foresee it being used often!

Weekend's here - have a good one!


  1. Such a pretty smooshed background, Lin - so perfect with that fun floral banner!!

  2. Such a lovely set up for a floral banner. I have a similar stamp...I just might have to try this. (with credit due of course.)

  3. What a pretty little banner!!

  4. Wonderful. Card Lin, love that little die cut banner and the flowers round it. Stunning

  5. Gorgeous Lin. I can see this would be a very versatile set.

  6. What a versatile banner stamp set, and I do love your smooshed background.

  7. Hi Lin! What a sweet, sweet card and such pretty colors too!
    Stop by for a visit some time and check out my challenges.
    I'd love to have you join me :)
