If you go to visit someone you should always ask if they have any rubber stamps you can use. Then you get to stamp images that you do not personally own. I tried this trick with my grandkids and had a fun time stamping with them. Along the way we shared some stamping lessons: I taught them to use a black water-based Crayola marker to color their stamps and huff on it because we only had a red stamp pad. I taught them how to mask images so something else stamped would appear behind. I taught them to use stamps in unexpected ways as we had 'face parts' that became other things when turned upside down.
For myself I had to learn that is it OK to create even when you don't have your go-to supplies so I colored with student grade standard colored pencils. I stamped and colored on plain white computer paper and just mounted it to cardstock with Xyron when I got home. And when the kids got bored and moved on to video games I stayed and finished my work.
Lots of lessons learned!
I used one stamp twice and colored it two different ways for totally different looks. First is this fairly standard coloring of a little sheep. I gave him some background scraps in coordinating colors and pupped him up on foam tape. The lettering is made with a punch set I have but had not used for a long time. I don't know why I cannot use a sheep image without including the 'ewe' pun in some way.
For the second stamping I colored the sheep in blues to further the pun. This time I used the punches to create the words in patterned paper strips. I punched first on longer strips and then centered them on the card and trimmed the ends. Some little paper flowers that I had experimented in coloring a while back suddenly found a home on this card. attached them with glue dots and filled the centers with blue rhinestones.
Oh, the silliness!
