Layered Stamps Spotlight Week - Layered Holly


It's Day 3 of the Layered Stamps launch at STAMPlorations, and today we're shining the spotlight on the Layered Holly set.


Again, these stamps aren't supposed to line up exactly, but to overlap so that you get the graphic artsy look.  You can see that there are four pairs of outline and solid leaf stamps, and the solid/outline berries.  The two smaller solid stamps can work with any of the larger leaves.  Or you can just use all of the images independently.  This set is fantastic for making QACAS (quick and clean and simple) cards, to quote Darnell.

For this first card I've stamped the three larger outline leaves and berries, then watercoloured them with Distress Inks, and layered onto red card.


For the next one, I've inked up the solid images with various Distress Inks and stamped onto mixed media paper.


Then I decided to make a background panel on a card, so I masked off the edges, sponged the centre and stamped the sentiment in Old Paper Distress Ink.  I stamped the outline images on coloured card, cut out and adhered to the card.


And finally, I've inked up the solid stamps with Distress Oxides and stamped them onto kraft card, then overstamped the line images in Versafine Onyx Black and added a sentiment.


If you missed my post last Tuesday, you can see more examples of this set there.
