More Serendipity samples today! Natural Hope is soooooooo girly, that I had to go pink :)
For this one, I did the rock-n-roll technique again... OH! BTW... someone asked me what that meant last time, so I thought I'd share it real quick. You simply cover your stamp image completely in one color of ink and then, on a darker color ink pad, just tilt (or rock) your block/image up slightly and roll the edges of the image only onto the ink pad. The 'inside' of the image is the first ink color, and then it fades and ends up the darker ink color on the edges. Man, it's a lot harder to explain in words... it's really easy to show IRL.
Ingredients for both samples:
Stamps: Natural Hope
Paper: Genevieve FWIC, Toodle Loo Cardstock (pink), DCWV Plum-1, White UltraSmooth
Ink: Claret & Violete Palettes
Other: Winchester Ribbon (purple), Juliette Ribbon (pink), White Scrapper's Floss, Lemonade Buttons & Blossoms, VersaMark, Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Hydra Sponge
**AngelNet is down right now, so I will include the product links later**
For this second sample, I wanted to show how versatile the stamp image can be. I stamped 'Hope' with the VersaMark and heat embossed clear powder. I then stamped the image, rock-n-roll style, on top of it [ I just eye-balled where it should go :) ] and wiped the ink off of the embossed image with a paper towel. After that, I just cut it to size, sponged the edges, layered a small bit of DP and ribbon, and finished it off with a blossom, button & paper heart (free-hand cut). Who would have ever known that there used to be a face on this image?!
What do you think?
