Stamp-a-Faire Challenge 8

The challenge for this round was to create a card with the cover cut back a bit to reveal a portion of the bottom of the base.  I really liked trying this one out because I learned how easy it is to give a lot more depth and interest to a card just by using this technique.

Another fun little thing I've discovered about using clear stamps is the ability to emboss pretty much any color using only clear embossing powder.  I stamped the poppy images here in red ink, cleaned my stamp, then stamped right over the original image using versamark ink and embossed with clear powder.  With the clear stamp I was able to stamp right on top of the original image without using any special tools.  This also totally eliminates the need to have powders in every color.

Seeing as how red and blue is my current favorite color combination, I LOVE IT! (and I think it matches my new kitchen even!)

Great Job!

Lovely. ;-) The colors are beautiful together, and I like the text down the interior side that is exposed by the cut-off front. Very nice. ;-)

Oh man Sära, this is fantastic! I adore the color combination and the pristine quality of the layout. The text down the edge is brilliant. This is a real "must CASE". Brava!
