One Stamp-4 Techniques and Two Different Winners!!!!

One Stamp-4 Techniques
I am excited to announce that on Thursdays I am going to try very hard to show you how to take "one" stamp and use it with different techniques.

This we I selected Memory Box Adore Peony Collage to do my stamping techniques in.
Card #1-Watercolor pencils and a H2O pen. I first stamped my image with Black Stazon Ink on to watercolor paper. I start with a yellow watercolor pencil and my a H20 pen. Using the H20 pen and touching the tip of the pencil color the poppy in. Next do the same with a light shade of green to do the stem and leaves the same way. Taking an orange watercolor pencil and highlight your poppy starting at the bottom of the poppy and lightly going up toward the top of the image by touching the tip of the pencil with your H20 pencil. Remember to clean your H20 pen by stroking it on your paper towel until the tip is clean before going into another color. Lastly, do the same to the stem and leaves with a darker green.
Card #2-Copic Markers Technique. Stamp your image on to white card stock using Black Memento Ink. Color your image in using G02, G05, YR04 and YR07. Color your poppy first with the YR04 and then add your depth to the poppy using YR07, then color your leaves and stem first with G02 and add your depth with G05.
Card #3-Embossing and using Glimmer Mist. Using Versamark and black embossing powder stamp and emboss your image. Now shake up your Sugar Maple and Olive Vine and with a small paint brush paint your images in.
Card #4- Stampin Up Markers. Stamp image with Black Versafine Ink. Using Only Orange, Summer Sun, YoYo Yellow, and Ballet Blue color your images. I selected these colors because they are what I had on hand. I first colored the poppies with the Summer Sun and then deepen with Only Orange. For my stem and leaves I colored them with the Yo Yo Yellow and then went over them with the Ballet Blue because I know blue and yellow make green :) and that makes me happy.
All my cards are A2 cards and were made the same way. I first distressed the stamped images after I had them colored using the Tim Holtz distressing tool, I then took my blending tool and Tea Dye Distress Ink and inked the sides of the stamped images. I took a piece of Jillibean Pasta Fagioli Romano Cheese paper, inked the sides with the Tea Dye Distress Ink and then glued it to the top of my A2 cards. I placed a 12" piece of sheer burnt orange ribbon on top of my card and glued my image over the top of it. I made some loops to the right side to finish off my card using the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher.
