One stamp three waysPosted: August 6, 2013
I think this berry branch stamp was the first Penny Black stamp I owned. I love the way it comes in from the side with all the twigs, berries and leaves. Sometimes I want to balance a design with a branch facing the other way and, as I don’t have one of those blank rubber stamps for creating a mirror image, I tried something else. I stamped the branch in a mix of teal and green in the upper left hand corner. I re-inked the stamp and stamped it on the plastic imaging sheet I use with my stamp positioner and stamped the sheet onto the card panel. The image is much paler when stamped this way. The third way I stamped the berry branch was by painting water onto it and stamping it onto the sponged colour. This creates a ghostly watery image.
The steep hills were created by sponging over a torn post-it note mask several times. I also flicked some water droplets and green ink droplets around too. The panel is matted with PB Sea Breeze mix & match cardstock with the 1 Corinthians Love chapter text stamped on it.
