Well I missed the August Blog Hop, but I wasn't about to miss this month's! The challenge for this month was to demonstrate a technique that you have learned from other stampers. When I first started stamping, I didn't do any layering of stamps. From various stampers suggestions, I started to experiment with layering my stamps. Here is a card that I quickly prepared this morning before the kids got up that shows this!
I used two different background strips from PTI's Polka Dot Basics II, the smaller stamped in Dark Chocolate ink and the larger dots in Terracotta Tile on Harvest Gold cardstock. I added a 2" strip of Harvest Gold to the middle of the card. I used my eCraft to cut out the leaf in Orange Zest (stamped in Background Basics: Retro using Fresh Snow) and the circle in Dark Chocolate cardstock. Both shapes are from the Fundamentals 1 SD Design Card. I also used Fillable Frames #8 die to cut out a piece of Terracotta Tile cardstock, and stamped the Fillable Frames #8 frame in Fresh Snow. The sentiment is from Fillable Frames #7 and is stamped in Dark Chocolate. This overlapping of background stamps also works great with Versamark ink as your 1st stamp layer with a colored stamp on top, it is a much more subtle approach to the same technique.
Thanks for stopping by and I can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with!
