One Stamp, Four Different Cards

No Gravatar

The other day I was putting away some stamps and came across one I had never used.  If you collect rubber and especially acrylic stamps, you know what I am talking about!  I thought the image would look really pretty if I stamped it and watercolored it, so I grabbed my watercolor paper,  Derwent watercolor pencils, my waterbrush and tuxedo black Memento dye ink and went to town!

I stamped it four times and created four different looking cards.  I felt the stamp lent itself to sympathy cards and figured it would be good to have them on standby because it’s difficult to make a sympathy card when I need it.  Oddly, as I was creating the cards, I received an email from someone who told me one of our loved ones had just lost a relative.  So, one of these cards will be used immediately.

OK, remind me to keep looking for my nice camera, rather than using my phone for pictures… because these all have a strange coloring cast on them.
