{Spotlight Project} Generational Stamping with Cornelia

Hi, Cornelia here today, playing with generational stamping.

My STAMPlorations supplies:



How I made card #1:

The fantastic new sets by Shirley Bampton just lend themselves to generational stamping - in case you don't want to layer them.....For my first card I used a tiny amount of grey Brushos and spritzed it with water. I then took a brush and added additional water and moved the colors around a bit. Let it dry.


I first tested with which ink I get the most out of generational stamping and it turned out to be Distress Oxide inks. So I took the purple one and that ghost like image from the Layered Holly set and stamped it repeatedly without re-inking it.

Here is how it looks with googly eyes attached. To finish off this card I trimmed the edges, added Washi tape and to BOO letters. 


How I made card #2:

Stamped another of the Holly leaves in Broken China Distress Oxide Ink - you see I did a triangle here, as it is pleasing to the eye.

Added light green in between.

I thought it needed a different kind of stamp and selected on from the Mixed Media Elements. I also did generational stamping here with the first stamping along the blue patterns and the second stamping along the green patterns.

To finish off card #2 I trimmed the edges, added the die cuts - cut in grey and white and layered them with an off-set. Heat embossed the HAPPY. Also added a brad and blue thread.
