9 Ways with 1 Stamp

I took one of the Hero Arts silhouette stamps (Silhouette Meadow Flowers see here) and tried 9 different techniques. With the exception of No. 7, I started with white card.



  1. Stamped in Sky Blue Colorbox pigment ink, then added a script stamp in Hero Arts Soft Sand, and finally added black shadow lines with a fineliner

  2. Stamped in Sky Blue Colorbox pigment ink and embossed with clear embossing powder, then stamped the script inked with Faded Jeans and Forest Moss Distress Ink, and then sponged the unembossed areas with Shabby Shutters, Crushed Olive, Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress Inks, and lastly wiped with a dried wet wipe.

  3. Stamped the script in Hero Arts Soft Sand first, then stamped silhouette stamp in Sky Blue Colorbox pigment ink and embossed with iridescent embossing powder, then sponged with pink,m purple, green and blue from Tsukineko Kaleidacolor Pastel Pad. I had thought the dye ink might stain the sparkles, but was happy to see that it didn't.

  4. Stamped the script in Hero Arts Soft Sand first, then stamped silhouette stamp using the graded Pastel Colorbox option pad and embossed with clear embossing powder, then applied the Faded Jeans directly to the image, and lastly wiped with a dried wet wipe.

  5. Stamped the script in Hero Arts Soft Sand first, then inked the silhouette stamp with Colorbox lavender and inked HA Starburst with Royal Blue and stamp-kissed repeatedly inking before each kiss; then stamped the silhouette stamp and embossed with clear embossing powder.

  6. Stamped in Sky Blue Colorbox pigment ink and embossed with Blue Pearl embossing powder twice. Added dots of Blue Liquid Pearls to centres.

  7. Started with turquoise card. Stamped with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.

  8. Stamped HA Friends Definition stamp with Fired Brick Distress Ink, then stamped the silhouette stamp with Versamark and embossed with clear Embossing powder, then applied Fired Brick directly to unembossed areas, and lastly wiped with a dried wet wipe.

  9. Stamped the script in Hero Arts Soft Sand first, then sponged Tea Dye Distress Ink around the edge, then stamped the silhouette stamp with Versamark and embossed with clear Embossing powder, then applied Vintage Photo Distress Ink to unembossed areas and wiped with a dried wet wipe.
And here are the cards I made with each piece. (Have temporarily misplaced number 5, but will add it when I find it - gremlins in my studio!)
