THREE OF A KIND--Forest Friends
Thanks to a couple of comments recently, I've decided to start a new category of posts showing how the same stamp can be used in three different ways. Actually, I already started with the last post of "Poppies in the Sun." It was a real challenge to come up with three ways to use this stamp today!
All images were stamped in Black India Ink. For the bottom one, I stamped on white cs and colored it with chalks. After distressing the edges and taping it to black cs, I attached it to the cardfront with dimensionals. The "friends" tag was done using the SU Tiny Tags set and the coordinating punch.
The right top one was stamped on blue cs. The animals and some of the tree trunks were colored in with a black marker, then the image was mounted on white cs and attached with dimensionals to a light blue textured card.
Last, after using colored pencils to color the image, the third card was made to look like a window. The "curtain" was made with a strip of Basic Grey paper and a Martha Stewart punch, then crumpled and attached with sticky strip to the green cs "valance." Another scrap of green cs was used for the "window sill" and attached with dimensionals.
The stamp is from "In the Forest" by Mark's Finest Papers.
