This week I challenged myself to take one art stamp, Elegant Poppies by Christine Adolph, and make three separate projects using it. I incorporated purple, pink, and blue hues into each piece to give the collection a cohesive feel. By changing a few elements in each, I was able to create a group of individual pieces that look unified, but also have a unique, independent perspective on their own.
With One Stamp Project Instructions:
1. Beautiful Adventure Wood Block Mixed-Media Collage
Once the entire surface is dry, use the Mini Ink Blending Tool and Distress Ink Minis to blend light tones of color onto the surface, using a combination of Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar, and Faded Jeans.
Edge with Faded Jeans Distress Ink.
Add ChitChat Word Stickers, sealing with gel medium.
Randomly add gel medium to the background, and then sprinkle on mica flakes.
Tie blue jute around the bottom.
2. The Good Stuff Moleskine Notebook
Use the Mini Ink Blending tool and Distress Ink Minis to add color to a sheet of white cardstock.
Stamp flowers directly onto the background. Cut to size, and edge with blue ink.
Add Small Talk Stickers to the bottom corner.
For added contrast, cut a strip of patterned paper, and glue to the back of the stamped image.
3. You Are Loved Wall Hanging
Use Mini Ink Blending tool and Distress Ink Minis to add color to the background.
Layer the embossed image onto a corrugated cardboard, and then back with black cardstock.
Thread with twine or wire to hang.
