February’s Project Set with ‘Moon Goddess’ Stamp

This is an interesting play on different uses of the same stamp … two 5-1/2 cards (one stamped in blue, one in brown), plus a tag and an ATC.  The cards use the full stamp, while the stamp wraps around to the back of the tag and only a partial cut-out is used for the ATC.  Double  click on photos to open a larger image viewing.  

BLUE CARD INSTRUCTIONS:  I picked a stamp, then a piece of pretty paper.  I stamped the image in different ink colors (Momento Danube Blue and Rich Cocoa), trimmed 1/8 inch outside edge and laid onto the paper.  Using the blue stamped image, next I selected colored pencils to coordinate with the paper and pull out its flower and background colors.  I smudged over the pencil color with a light shade of Distress ink, then shaded edges more with a couple different colors. Sometimes I apply the ink pad directly onto to the artwork (lightly, or a somewhat dry ink pad).  I layered a strip of paper on top of card stock, added a corner brad, and then mounted to card stock.  Next I sewed on a few buttons and mounted Moon Goddess image on top of card stock with 3D glue dots.  I continued embellishing with a flower ribbon, a dictionary word stamp and a little ribbon bow.  Note how different the art looks when I repeated a similar process using the brown image (see second photo below).
