Cards 2 & Cards 3

Creating cards with the same images but using different techniques has been a lot of fun.  I, only recently, have been comfortable calling myself a stamper.  I started off as a scrapbooker.  I played with paper, glue and photos.  I told many people that I already had one expensive hobby, I didn't need another one.  And then someone showed me hear embossing.  And Copic markers came along.  And I'm now fully hooked on stamping and all the techniques you can use with them.  Here are the samples using just one of the images:
 This is the Cards 1 sample.  The image is straight colored and stands up beautifully as a focal point.
The Cards 2 sample has select portions of the image colored and then highlighted with embossing powder.  Same image but completely different look.
Cards 3.  This one might be my favorite.  Not only is it stamped on patterned paper which instantly makes it look totally different but it's colored and then has small touches of gold foil/leaf added to it.

I used pretty much the same colors on all three images but look at how different they look.  And the different "vibe" each of them has just based on the way it is featured on the card and the colors surrounding them.

To further highlight how versatile stamps really are, I'll be creating layouts and other non-card projects with these images.  I'd love to hear what you think of these projects so drop me a note.

Have a fabulous day!
