Inked Day 5 ~ Tweaking A Stamped Image

Today's lesson was about using your stamps in a different shape then they come.  For instance, if you have a stamp that is straight, you can bend it to make it a circle or half circle...with this kit stamp set from Studio Calico, there was a leafy flourish stamp that was slightly curved.  Maile demonstrated how she changed the shape by following the grid lines on her acrylic block.  Here is my card:
The leafy flourish is an outline stamp, I used a copics (RV 19) and randomly colored in some areas.  The hello is from Happy Hydrangea cut with a spellbinders circle.  I added a strip of raspberry fizz pattern paper to the side and a little twine from the twinery.  I think I will look through my stash to find a stamp that I can do something with along these same lines...These classes sure help in stretching your mind to think outside the box and come up with different approaches for using your stamps.

  1. If you didn't say I would never think that this stamp is curved. Love your card. It's so pretty and sweet!
