Some stamped by me - some stamped and sent by friends - some from the stamp catalog. All colored by me though!
I trimmed this one close to create an intimate scene and rounded the corners to make it casual. This corner rounding follows through most of the layers and they are offset to keep that casual feel going. I used Glossy Accents on the bottle and glassware to make them shine and then added the yellow panel which also is glossy finish. The rest is just color-blocking to enhance the image and to provide a resting place for the stamped greeting.
Sweet little lamb has a furry coat created by coloring just curls with a grey marker. The colors of the table scrap panels are used to accent rather than match the stamp coloring. I added a stamped greeting to the top.
The patchwork heart got a fall coloring so I added plaids and stripes to the background using the same color scheme to make it look homey. The vertical stamped greeting was a perfect fit for the space as well as the sentiment.
The coloring on this fella was pretty bright so I kept the layering bright as well. rounded corners lighten the mood, too. I added the greeting to a punched tag and placed a flower brad in it. The tag is mounted on foam tape.
Not a lot of coloring to do on a black and white cow so I added shading with gray markers. I carried the shading over on the pink areas as well. A couple of table scraps create the pasture grass and the swirling sky. The greeting is hand-lettered - because I think it's funny. I used thesoft yellow card base because the stamp name is 'buttercup'. Just a little inside joke for ME.
This one is a visual pun.I had these awesome butterflies made of painted feathers and the colors were perfect so... there you go. Glue dots were the perfect colution for holding feathers to cardstock, by the way. I added table scraps for backing and stamped the greeting on one of them.
Another cute pig! He just got lots of table scrap layering, including the scalloped circle, popped up on foam tape. I also punched a couple of holes in the scallop and knotted a ribbon through them. I had the punched out script on hand from a swap with a friend.
This heart wreath got a more elegant setting with the script and swirls paper scrap. I left a border of the backing card showing at the top and used this space for stamping the greeting, using blue chalk ink to match the printed paper.
Another set with similar techniques and a wide variety of styles.
