Feature Stamp Tuesday
Today I'm featuring my Pride stamp. At 3.5"x 4.0", this is a nice size statement stamp, representing the pride and strength of an African American woman. Wouldn't this stamp make a great card for Kwanzaa?
When I first carve or buy a stamp, I like experimenting with how the stamp will look on various backgrounds. I tied these experiments into this journal page, adding stitch lines to draw all the images together.
Top left was stamped on gelli print paper. Top right stamped over a stamped background. Bottom left stamped over Heidi Swapp Specialty Paper that was colored with distress inks. And bottom right was stamped with the left over ink from the top right. I used some of the scraps from these papers to glue around the bottom and sides of the page to finish it. These are not the only experiments I could have done with the stamp, but it serves as a reference of what may be to loud or over powering as a background for this stamp. I'm pleased with my page though.
I appreciate your visit today, leave a comment to let me know you were here. If you'd like to add Pride to your collection, visit here.
