Stamping Week!

Hi Everyone,
This week is being devoted to stamping! We all love to stamp and thought we'd share some of our ideas with you. We could probably have a stamping YEAR, since there are so many wonderful techniques to do with it, but we settled on presenting you with some awesome projects to get you motivated.

This first one comes to you from Miki. How cute is this clock??? Miki says,
"I went kind of simple this time. But it's something I've wanted to do for a long time. I received this clock for Christmas last year. You're supposed to put photos in it, but I put stamped images in it instead. Thought it would make a fun, colorful clock for my scraproom. The silhouette stamps are some of my favorites! The only thing I wished was that the silver frame wasn't so shiny/smooth. I would have loved to have stamped some swirls in the corners and along the photos. But I would have made a mess with it since it's so slick. (in other words...I was too chicken to mess it up, LOL)

I used plain, old school watercolor to paint on the watercolor paper. Once they dried, I simply stamped the silhouette images with black ink and placed them in the clock."

Supplies used:
Photo Clock: Melannco
Cardstock: Watercolor Paper
Stamps: See-D's Silhouettes
Ink: Black Versafine
Watercolors: Crayola
Other: Paintbrush

Next, we have gorgeous card from Linda. She says, "Both of my cards show creating my entire background with stamps and coloring mediums. The first one started out with solid white cardstock. I stamped the dictionary page stamp in black on the paper and then I sprayed that with the Mango Lemondade and the Strawberry Diaquiri Memories Mists. The flower was created the same way. The stamp is just an outline of the flower. It is colored to match my background piece with the same sprays.

The next card started out with solid white cardstock. I stamped the dot background stamp with black ink and I embossed it with black embossing powder and then colored that piece with the Pearlescent green and sprayed it with the Fully Purple Glimmer Mist.
