ACDT Post: Creative Stamping

Here is my inspirational project for Artful Crafting Challenge # 2: “Its all about UNUSUAL stamping”
Stamp, we all -- but in a different way; that,was the real challenge.

I combined few of the supplies from the kit, with some from my stash, and came up with this:

My kit included the following:
Stamping Paper, Memento Tear Drop Ink pads: Bamboo Leaves, Rose Bud, Forget-Me-Not Enamel Shapes, Forget Me Not Sentiment ToppersHero Arts Clear Stamp Set Making the World Better,
Artful Crafting blanks.

My aim was to use the provided stamp in a couple of different ways on this card. So I used a range of different stamping techniques to create these rather unusual elements.

The techniques used to create the background:
-Reverse Stamping
-Dry embossing with Stamps. (if you notice the stamped script appears in the background and is not visible on the embossed portions)

The flowers were made with the following techniques, using vellum:
-Embossing (the golden outline on the petals is embossed)
-Stamp and Cut

-Embossing (The text was stamped and embossed in gold)
-Partial Stamping (Two stamps were used to create the flower bunch)
-Coloring and Misting (Using the stamp to trace, the flower bunch was water colored, and then glimmer mist was added for some .. glimmer)
-Shadow (The flower bunch was created as a shadow of the vellum flowers -- which is visible when the card is closed)

PS: My technique post is due on the 30th, so if there is any ONE technique (from the above) which you want a tutorial on, please mention it in your comment below.

Supplies Used:
