SPARKS, redux

For a challenge that seemed so difficult to get going on, I want to keep making cards for it now! You have until tomorrow night to link up with the current PS SPARKS challenge.

This time I did change up the colours a little bit, including some grey tones.

Supplies: Paper Smooches stamps; Distress inks in Pumice Stone, Brushed Corduroy, and Antique Linen, brown rhinestones from Dollarama

Except for the Antique Linen images, all of the stamping was done with stamped-off-once ink. Finding brown gems to match was one of those awesome shopping my own stash finds - Dollarama stopped carrying these little packs of different sized gems, so the stash is getting low. 

Here be the inspiration pic:

Is this that fancy generation stamping I hear about? or is this stamp off technique different? It gives almost a watercolor look that is so elegant! it would make a great wedding card too! Thanks for playing PS Sparks, you did it beautifully!
