Hello everyone!  My favorite online card classes are back in session and I’m super excited!  I love these classes.  I learn so much and met so many wonder crafters from all over the world.

Stretch your Stamps 2 helps us look at our stamps in a whole new way!! The class started yesterday and I’ve learned a lot thus far.

For our first lesson, Kristina Werner taught us how to multilayer emboss resist with a regular background stamp.

For this lesson we used Hero Arts Highline Ironwork Background Stamp because it has a lot of detail that can be painted and repainted.

First we did a simple wash of watercolor, dried the complete background and then add another layer of watercolor to spot highlight the design.  This stamp works because the design is open and has lots of open spaces to paint.

Take a look at my watercolor piece when I was finished with it:

From this piece I created these cards:

Big Hug and Background

Big You and Background Stamp

I was able to make three cards with this one watercolor piece.  I really loved this technique.  I would have never thought to use this back ground stamp in this manner.

I’ve used this stamp before, take a look at this card.  You can clearly see the difference in the way the stamp was used.

I have two other techniques to try for this first lesson.  I’m going to try and post the assignments as I do them.  Please don’t hold me to that totally, things do come up.

  1. Gorgeous – out of this world, amazing!! You nailed it – that background is unbelievable!! Way to go – making such good use if it in borders and in die cut words!! I am so impressed!!

  2. Well done!! You did a fantastic job with this technique, how fantastic to have the same background stamp! I can’t get over how good the ‘you’ looks with the Glossy Accents. Haven’t had a chance to try this all out yet but seeing yours makes me want to get started!!

    • Hey Shona! Thank you so much for your wonderful comment. Yes, you should try this technique. It was so much fun to create. Creating the watercolor piece was the most time consuming but it turns out great when you take your time. Try it! I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
