Stampsmith Beauty in Blue

Hi Dreamers,
How is your weekend going?  Going good for me so far.  I thought you might enjoy checking out what I have been up to today.  I was experimenting with some of my Stampsmith Stamps -the set is called Belinda and Friends.  I wanted to see how different the stamped images would look on colored cardstock.  I also varied the ink color.  Here are a few of the results.

Starting at the upper left, the ink is Terra Cotta Archival from Ranger  on pink CS.  The next is stamped in Onyx Black VersaFine on tan CS.  Bottom left is Onyx Black again on light blue solid DP.  The bottom right is Coffee Archival ink from Ranger on pink CS.  I will be sharing all of the finished projects over the next week or so.  Here is how the one stamped on the light blue DP turned out.

I added several more layers of blue DP and black CS.  And finished it off with a strip of sheer ribbon and a bow.

I love experimenting.  You never know what you will come up with.  LOL  I like how the Coffee ink looks on the pink CS too.  That might be my fav.

I also wanted to enter my Blue Beauty in the Vintage Challenge over at the  Blue Box babe blog.

I hope you have a great weekend.   I may make a few cards.  Or, I may work on some hair accessories for a friend's wedding.  Should be fun.  Love ya.
