1 stamp and 2 COMPLETELY different looks with Sandhya!!!

1 stamp and 2 COMPLETELY different looks with Sandhya!!!

Happy Sunday! I hope all of you are having a great weekend. Today I am sharing two cards to show how you can switch up the technique to achieve two completely different looks with the same stamp. I will be using the large stamp form the MFT Fantasy Florals stamp set as my focal image today. And the key items that make a difference here are water based markers for coloring, and white embossing powder. I used Karin Markers for the first card and Brutus Monroe Alabaster Embossing powder for the second.

For my first card, I stamped the bouquet on opposite corners of a Bristol Smooth card panel. I used Versafine Onyx Black to stamp and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Then, I colored with Karin Markers. I always start by scratching out the markers on my Tim Holtz glass media mat and use a watercolor brush to lay down my first layer. Once the first layer is completely dry, I used the Karin Marker directly on the paper to add darker color to nooks and crannies and blended it out with a watercolor brush. Once I was happy with my coloring, I popped the panel on to a white A2 card base with some foam tape. I made my sentiment with the Dymo Label maker. I added few Nuvo drops as a finishing touch.

For my 2nd card, I stamped the bouquet on a piece of black cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I die-cut this piece with a smaller wonky stitched rectangle die and shaded the flowers with a white color pencil. I die cut a piece of red pattern paper form my stash with the same die, and also a white panel with the die that was one size bigger. I arranged these panels in away where the white panel mats the red piece and the black piece sits tilted on top with some mounting tape. Then, I adhered it to a black card base. I grabbed a sentiment strip from my bowl of pre-made sentiments to quickly finish my card.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you are inspired to give one of these cards a try. Bye for now, and I will see you again in August! Oh, and stay tuned as I have some fun surprises and deals up my sleeve to celebrate my birthday month with you!

Inky hugs,
