One Stamp Six Techniques

I hadn't made an ATC in such a long time that I thought I would make one. One turned into 6 when I started playing around with different techniques. The stamp set that I used is Sunflowers one of this month's new releases from Red Rubber Designs.  Here are the results of that one ATC that I started.

On the left, I stamped the image on vellum and heat embossed with pearl embossing powder. I colored on the reverse with water based markers.  On the right, I stamped with VersaMark and then colored with chalk.

For the card on the left, I heat embossed the image with black embossing powder on an alcohol ink background.  The ATC on the right was stamped with Palette New Canvas ink, colored with colored pencils and highlighted with a white opaque pen.

On the left, I stamped the image with Palette Noir ink, masked the image, stamped the background using the Gingham Background and Palette Sunflower ink from RRD then colored the image with colored pencils. The ATC on the right has been paper pieced.

So, there you have 6 different looks using the same stamp. Which one do you like best?

I likE that you did all these different takes on this stamp -- but I'm really drawn to the gingham one. If you check out my blog today you'll understand:)

These are all absolutely gorgeous Sarah, but if I had to pick a favorite, it would be the soft chalk colored one. Have a great day.

Hi Sarah,
Luv your ATC's, my favorite are the first two. Also like how you added the little "tab" ? to the right side of each ACT, adds a little "pop". Great idea.

I like 'em all! But the one on black card is really appealing to me!
