City Crafter Challenge Blog week 159 ~ One Stamp Two Ways

Hello friends, I am here in NYC when you are reading this post


My daughter is done with the school year and I am here to spend her birthday with her and then bring her home for the summer break.

............


I am hosting the challenge this week at 

City Crafter Challenge Blog 

the theme is

One Stamp Two Ways

to use ONE stamp (clear or rubber stamp, no digital) and make 2 projects with two different look

I used one of my favorite stamp from Kaiser


the first project is a card I made for my brother-in-law's wedding anniversary


I stamped the roses with red ink and do lots of fussy cutting


for the second project, I stamp the same rose image onto old book paper and color the image with water colors





this one is a birthday card



so what do you think, which one you like better, project 1 or 2?

Hop over to City Crafter Challenge Blog and check out the fabulous or the team as well as our special guest star Colleen Dietrich

That's hard to say, Kirsty... they're both pretty. I do like that stamping on the book paper though... what a great effect! Guess I'll go with the second one!

Tracy said...

You girls are rockin this cool challenge. Your cards are so very different. Both looks are fabulous. The layering on the first one adds great texture and I love the use of the dictionary paper. Hugs!

Colleen Dietrich said...

Hmmm, both of these are pretty, but my heart goes right to the one where you stamped on a book page! Love!

Thanks so much for having me as your guest, Kirsty, and enjoy yourself in NYC!
