I had some more time to play with the Unity Stamps January Kit of the Month stamps this weekend.
Just for fun, I thought I'd make two cards using the same two stamps but in very different styles.
One very clean and simple...
And one a lot "fussier" with a mix of patterns, inked edges and embellishments:
Just goes to show how versatile stamps can be!
On the first card I stamped the shoes with pigment inks and used clear embossing powder to add some interest. The only part of the first card that took time was that I managed to smudge black ink onto the white space in the first version so had to start over...
The second is stamped with black StazOn, and inked with Distress Inks. I also added some additional flourish stamping to the edges. The papers are Laura Ashley. Then I've glued on some half pears and layered up some Prima flowers in matching colours.
I'm going to send one of these to my mum - if there's one person who loves shoes as much as I do, it's her!
