Blogger Challenge Week 23

I've recently joined a group of Blogging Stampers. This week is my first Blogger Challenge. The goal was to create 2 cards using the same stamp but with two different points of views. The stamp I'm focusing on is one of the SU! level 2 hostess sets.


Card 1 was created using watercolor paper and watercolor crayons. Just mist your rubber stamp and scribble the crayon on top of the wet rubber; then stamp the image onto the watercolor paper. I tried to lighten the image but the cardstock is so dark. The flowers were also outlined with an eggplant colored marker.





For card 2 I just stamped the flower mulitple times to create the background. The base cardstock is Saffron but the ink used was mustard and close to cocoa (the close to cocoa was stamped off once before applying to the cardstock.

First off Welcome to the group Melanie. I love your cards. It's neat to see how you can use a stamp as both a focal image & also as a background image.
