Layered stamping...

Posted by Rajni Chawla

Hello lovely ladies...

Today I m here to share a post that I made as  DT for color Conception Challenge Blog for their current challenge.....and I am sharing a beautiful mistake that I did yesterday.
Yes ,don't get surprised...I m really sharing my mistake.
Let me know who all make mistakes while trying something new....I mean who all are like me??
We all are same... Right??
but don't admit sometimes :D
Few of us also leave everything and jump onto other new things but I always try to check what mistake I have done and now what can be done to get a little better results with the same.

Just a little revision now....this was what I shared with u all as an inspiration for the current challenge. 

 I have shared embossed resist and layered stamping.  First of all I would love to share the tutorial which I myself followed while making my inspiration card for this month's challenge.  Click here and watch how Shari Carrol uses acrylic blocks for creating wonderful backgrounds.

Now onto my mistake card. I was in bit hurry and instead of clear embossing powder I sprinkled seafoam white embossing powder..actually got confused between their bottles......and here are the results I got.

Look at the beautiful background. Isn't it amazing !!
At the first glance i was not at all happy with the results as i wanted my background stamp to show. Got little confused...and in that confusion i tried to rub off the embossing powder with foam sander.  

Just follow these few steps...

1. I used Hero Arts news paper stamp and stamped it using black archival ink.

2. Then stamped Penny Black background stamp using Versamark and sprinkled white seafoam embossing powder. I didn't even gave a small thought that white embossing powder is opaque and most of the part won't show. I was not happy with the backgrounds as it was more of whites.
3. I gave a little rub with my sanding block and added Withered wood distress ink.
4. At last little touch up with koi brush using Peeled paint distress ink and a little rubbing with a wet tissue and it was done.

Here is another one that came in my mind.

This is just simple....yet awesome!!

Its not layered stamping.....its only heat resist on vellum. Simply stamped with versamark and heat set using white embossing powder and flowers were colored with distress inks using koi brush. It has nothing like layered stamping but still I'm excited to share with u all because I created it when I was trying to create something else.

 Isn't it that trying new things does not cost anything but sometimes gives big and beautiful returns. Trying new things  stirs my creativity in ways I could never have imagined. So, you all also stir your creativity and  try to learn from your mistakes. 

Sometime it  turns out and sometimes not...... it is fun!! 

Making mistakes. Sometimes laughing at my own attempts......Still trying new things. Growing and changing..... learning n living every day.... gaining confidence. 

Hope you too share your mistakes :)
