Another Stamp Class Card

This is another card I have done in a number of stamp classes. This card uses acetate (or transparencies). I've done it two different ways. In the card shown, I stamped French Script in Close to Cocoa on the strip of Very Vanilla card stock. I then stamped the flower in Brown Stazon on the acetate, flipped it over and used blender pens to colour in the flower. I flipped it back over and very carefully and precisely placed the acetate on the Very Vanilla card stock and held it steady while I punched in a hole and placed a brad. The ink comes off the acetate so I wanted to make sure it came off in the exact place I wanted it - directly behind the outline of the flowers. Kind of tricky. So for another stamp class, I did the opposite: Stamped the flower and coloured in with blender pens on the card stock, and stamped the French Script in Stazon on the acetate. Much easier. Both work, but the look is a bit different. Sorry, I don't have a picture to show you of the second card.

I've done this card in three stamp classes/worshops. And I've noticed that everyone has different tastes. Some people like the photo corners on the card, and others don't and just use four brads instead. Interesting.
