Stretching Your Stamps
I am taking the online class - Stretching Your Stamps - this is the first day I have played with my stamps. I am combining Day 3 (stamping on acetate for an overlay) and Day 1 using a background stamp.
I got two entirely different looks from the background stamp. On the first card - the background stamp was stamped on acetate with Stazon Ink. If you notice we have a border at the bottom of the card - that is called - covering up where it did not stamp well - the 2nd attempt was much better but I was making a kit for my friend who is also taking the class. I layered on lots of colors - what a great find that pad was at Tuesday Morning. Fun summer colors - orange, green, teal, pink. The hello was cut with my Silhouette - very bold in the white but I think I like it.
The second card just used a strip of paper stamped with the background stamp. If you notice - I punched holes in all the dots so the background paper would show through. The green was embossed with a Cuddlebug folder. A very masculine card that will go in my Operation Write Home Box.
All stamps are by Hero Arts.
