One stamp, three ways.

I love my Sarah K stamp and I can't wait to get my hands on some more.

I lent this stamp to Simonne last week so she could copy my mothers day card. Here's the link to her card, it's gorgeous, not exactly the same but pretty close.

I know I've already put this pic on here but I wanted to show the different ways the stamp looks, depending on the colours used.
This one is my first go at paper piecing.....and I picked a pretty fiddly stamp to try this for the first time, but I think it's something I'll do again. It's a little hard to tell but the jeans are stamped on Basic Grey paper and the top is on a gorgeous Inque Boutique paper and has tiny flowers on it. I still had to colour the jeans for a bit more dimension tho. I used some old Kaisercraft paper for the card, it was nice to use up some of my scraps even if it was only a tiny bit.

This one I wanted to do different colour jeans and I've made it look a little different by cutting the image out around the body....leaving out the flowers and the ground. Oh, and I gave her blond hair...I usually only do them in browns and reds.

Oh and my last post with Adam Lambert from American Idol, well I've added all the songs he did to playlist. That dude can sing.

.....and Debbie has another amazing lot of blog candy.

This stamp is cool, love to see how it actually is pieced together though, looks fiddly. Amazing how different it can look if you change the colours!

I love what you create Ros. You are inspiring - and love how you find different ways to do things. Just love your cards.
Love your second card specially - you can tell it is raised because of the slight shadow. Beautiful work x
