CS2 Day 10

Today’s lesson was about using 1 stamp 3 ways.  I’ve never done this before so I really wanted to try it out!  It was fun and challenging!  Here’s the stamp I chose:


It’s from Great Impressions and is called Peeking Sunflower.  I got it forever ago and haven’t inked it up until today!  I also used the Word Salad set from Paper Smooches for all of my sentiments.  I also did 3 different card sizes using 3 different coloring mediums!

Here’s my first card using the stamp as is with Distress Inks as my watercolors:


For my second card, I cut out all the squares and arranged them in a square pattern on my card.  They were colored with Copics:


You can’t tell from the picture, but the whole sunflower square is popped up on foam squares. 

For my last card, I stamped the whole sunflower square 3 times, colored just the flowers with colored pencils and OMS and then fussy cut out:


The plain green squares looked a little naked, so I actually stamped the same image in matching ink as a background.  It’s a little crooked, but oh well.  I guess you could say I used the same stamp 4 ways! 

I’m not sure if I’d ever attempt this again, but I have to say that it was a great experience!  I hope you like my cards and TFL!
