This was FUN!!!

One of my favorite ways to get creative is to sit with the same stamps and come up with a bunch of different layouts and color combo's to use them! Here I was going for cutsey, vintage and contemporary! I used Cornish Heritage's Daisy stamp with Autumn Leaves Elegant Flourishes. Below each card is a brief description of each technique I used! Enjoy!

Here I used white glittery paper, sponged on Old Paper Ranger ink to give it more of a champange color. Then on the image I used thick embossing powder, 2 layers, and created a cracked glass effect. With the glaze and the glittery paper it is so sparkly IRL! Then added a simple rick rack ribbon to finish it!

Here I used some watercolor pencils and a blender pen to color. Layered it with one of my favorite color combo's and added some liquid glaze to give the jar a "water filled" look.

Again, I used a watercolor pencil and craft ink to color. Layered it a wee bit differently to create some blank space and all you need is a simple sentiment to finish it off!
Blessings!

Love all the different looks that you can get with one stamp. Did you know that Cornish Heritage Farms is looking for design team member(s)? Fresh faces- no other design team work. Do you qualify? You should check it out- google Lisa Strahl's blog for the details. You should totally check into it!

Hey Theresa, I just read your comment about the picture collages...I use Picasa2, it's a program I downloaded free from the internet. I don't really use anything else on the program except the collage maker because I just love it! Just Google Picasa2 and you will find it! Have fun and I look forward to seeing some collages on your blog soon!! :)
