Stretch Your Stamps Class

Hi.  I'm taking an online class called Stretch Your Stamps 2.  Yesterday was the first day.  I had so much fun working with a friend and trying new techniques.  The whole idea is to think of your stamps in a different way.  We started with background stamps and believe me I have never thought to use them except stamp a background.  I only had some designs in small strips so we stamped them several times down the paper in Versamark ink.  We heat embossed it with clear powder and then used Distress Inks to watercolor the image.  We created our own paper using the background stamp.


Background-stamp-1 Isn't this awesome!  The Scripty Hello is from Lawn Fawn and I die cut it from the newly created paper.


Background-stamp-3


I stamped the sentiment in black and added a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins.  By the way, you must pop over there and see all the AMAZING colors of sequins you can get.  I plan on using a lot since I got my order.

Come back tomorrow when I will showcase another card I made using this same technique.
