Hope you've all had a good weekend!
Today, is the start of a brand new challenge over on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog and this week, we challenge you to use 1 stamp, many ways!
So if you have a stamp that is versatile and can be used in many ways, we want you to use it on the same project or maybe, you could use the same stamp in different colours on multiple projects! Whatever you decide, we can't wait for you to join us for our fun challenge.
For my project, I chose ONE flower stamp from Tim Holtz's new Flower Garden stamp set and used that individual stamp in three ways to create my card. Hope you enjoy the process of how I made it...
Technique number 1, the background: I began by stamping the flower repeatedly onto cream card using Jet Black Archival Ink.
When I was happy with my background, I inked around the edge with Old Paper Distress Ink and then mounted the card onto black card stock and attached it to the front of my 18 x 20cm white card blank.
Technique number 2 and creating a resist technique: Once again, I stamped the flower onto white card but this time using a Versamark Stamp Pad. I then sprinkled clear embossing powder over the stamped images and used a heat gun to melt the powder until molten.
Technique Number 3 ~ Decoupaging and layering a stamped flower: For this, I used the same flower stamp and stamped the image onto watercolour card, three times. Cut out each of the stamped images but each time, cut away some of the image to create a layered effect.
I really hope you've enjoyed how I created my card and how I used just one stamp, three different ways. If you need any further inspiration for this challenge, then you need look no further than our blog to see all the wonderful creations from all the very talented Design Team members and every week, one lucky random participant has the chance to win a $50 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp. Good luck....
Thank you so much for all your visits today and hope you all have a great week ahead
