and a brand new Stamp of the Month!! This stamp is called Floral Happiness S1303
and this is my finished card, keeping it CAS (Clean and Simple) just wanted to show off the stamp!!
I only used the middle-sized rose stamps. It takes two stamps to make this image. I practiced lining them up on scratch paper first and figured out what worked for me. It was looking closely at the lower right corner (I'm talking about the green image here) and matching up what I was seeing there and along the bottom, then the rest just fell into place. Mastering this on scratch paper took the anxiety out of the rest of the project!!
This is Floral Happiness S1303, so that you can see how each rose image is made from two stamps.
BUT what if I only use one stamp? Carolyn (my Art Therapist ;) and I were discussing this on the phone. I had thought of doing this on a small strip of card stock, but Carolyn suggested doing it on a larger sheet to see what might appear. I haven't tried the largest stamp yet, but here are my experiments thus far...
|Different colors help maintain the floral image.|
|I used Sky ink to help detract from the floral feel of this stamp.|
Again, I used the same middle-sized rose, but made lines of it right-side up then up-side-down. This distorts the rose lines so much that they become almost meaningless. I can't wait to use this paper!!
More experiments, but this time played around with what the stamp was intended for!!
Will post more cards for you tomorrow!!
Hope that you have a wonder-filled creative day!!
