I was just about to put away the Penny Black holly stamp I used in my post last week but something stopped me. I've used this stamp so many times in my crafting but felt it had even more to offer so I decided to see what else I could come up with.
And this is it...
I've used silk coated cardstock and stamped the holly in Versamark. I used the resist technique by brayering Adirondack ink over the top to create my first layer. Hopefully you can see the white bits of the holly showing through where the Versamark has resisted the ink.
Then I just stamped the holly again in the same colour, this one is in "Wild Plum", around the edges of the card. I also stamped off on to a sheet off paper to reduce the amount of ink on the stamp to create a shadow effect.
This one is stamped in "Bottle", a beautiful shade of blue.
And finally one more shot of all 3 colourways. The other colour I used was "Oregano", a much more muted colour but I love it. All the sentiments are by Papertrey.
I love the "movement" of this stamp and I am pleased with how the layers of stamping have created quite a lot of depth to what is a one layer card.
Well, I hope you like them and thank you again for stopping by!
