Different Points of View

Another weekend, that I could not go biking. So what do I do? I got the crafting therapy I needed, from the local Impress Store. They had a class called "Different Point of View" - Using 1 stamp 10 ways. So the stamp we used is the one below shown in the first image. I thought I will go in the order of complexity and list them out here. 

The first one was a simple black and white combination card with just the stamp on the card front.

Second one: Simple Thank You card. Just stamped the card on a scrap paper and cut out the flower to use it on this card.

Third one: Stamped the image on pattern paper and cut it out.

Fourth one: Used the image as the background. Used Versamark embossing ink for this but did not emboss.

Fifth one: Stamped the image on a scrap paper and used a flower punch to cut out the shapes and colored them with orange and red Memento markers.

Sixth one: Uses a kissing technique. Inked the stamp in brown, inked tag stamp in basil color and pressed the tag stamp on top of the original stamp and then stamped it on paper here. Also used checks background.

Seventh one: This did not come out as good. But we used Stazon Ink on laminated sheet (transparency) with sticky back. After we stamped, we removed the adhesive backing and added glitter to it leaving out the edges and then stuck it to white background. I think the Stazon ink pad had too much ink and hence the smudging and maybe this stamp was not ideal for the transparency. But you get the idea.

Eighth one: We used Inchi squares here to stamp the image and used copics to color them.Then we used Mango ink for the yellow background on inchies

Ninth one: Scrunched a white sheet of paper, applied orange, blue, green inks directly from ink pad randomly leaving some white spaces. Then stamped the image using Black ink for the background. Also stamped the image on another scrap paper using versamark black ink and embossed it. Then colored it using copics, cut out the shapes and used dimensionals to lift'em up.

Tenth: Kept the best one to the last. :) Used a resist technique here. First stamped the image  with versamark ink and embossed using clear embossing powder. Stamped the butterfly on a separate paper and cut out the wings and colored it yellow and green. Then stamped the same image for the center. Also stamped with the diamonds background stamp on the right top corner and the side border. Then used lavendar, mango, basil inks to sponge the background. Then added the butterfly at the last using dimensionals.
