Stretch Your Stamps 2 - Day 8 - Graphics (b,c,d)
Topic: Online Class

The next technique I tried from day 8 was to use a single graphic stamp to create a repeating border. I used two inks - purple and teal - and selected three different stamps so I could make some different designs.

In each case I drew a light line in pencil to keep the center aligned. I stamped down this line with teal ink, using a stamp positioner whenever the stamp was a wood mount (2 of them were). Then I used the purple ink to stamp an offset of the same stamp up each side.

For the first card I used a rather scroll-y stamp which lent itself to a more tailored treatment. I trimmed the panel, bordered it with purple and mounted it on a black striped background. I stamped a sentiment on teal, bordered it with black and purple then popped it up on foam tape.

The second stamp I used was a lineal floral. This created a narrower border which I gave a wider border of black striped paper. I used this panel on the left side of a shiny silver background. The sentiment was stamped on teal and bordered with purple and got popped up on foam. A thin black border was created with black marker.

The final card with this technique used a graphic square set on point. I bordered the panel in black and mounted it on the left side of a shiny gold background. The sentiment was stamped on purple and the corners rounded before bordering in black and popping up on foam tape.

Three butterflies were punched from black cardstock and mounted with the wings raised.
