This week I wanted to start by participating in PTI's Make-It-Monday whose topic is creating multi-layer images from a single stamp. Here's Betsy Veldman's example:
Can you believe that all of these medallions are made from a single stamp each? I'm excited to make some tags with these same stamps, but I didn't want to do that for my MIM entry since I felt I would just be copying Betsy. So...I went hunting for another stamp that might work for this technique. I have been dying to use my Irresistibly Ikat set and thought I would try it out here. Here's what I came up with:
I just love this large focal image and I wanted to try a color combo that may be a little unexpected. Here I've used Royal Velvet, Orange Zest and Hawaiian Shores. The color combo is fantastic in person!
Another thing I have started doing lately is making at least two cards each time I start creating. My card stash has been thinning lately and I wanted to bulk it up a little. :) So, here's my second card:
Same but different...right?
Well, thanks for stopping by and checking my creations out. I've missed you!
