Hi Folks! Kelly here with another fun challenge at Winnie & Walter in honor of World Card Making Day. This one is all about stretching your stamps, something that makes me feel quite accomplished whenever I can do it. Not only is it an exercise in creatively (can I think of a way to use this stamp in a manner other than it was intended?) but it's also very economical if I can get by with using what I've already got!
So here's my challenge to you:
Use a stamp/die/stencil in a way that is different than originally intended.
For example, you might ink a Christmas present stamp in a color other than red or green and use it on a birthday card. Or use a sentiment stamp for something other than a sentiment (to fill in a shape?)
Another example is to modify a focal point stamp, like this round tree from Kindness with Evelin T. Designs, and use it to create your own background...
... like this! Instead of inking the entire stamp and stamping it once on the card for a focal point, I inked up the circle part of the stamp (not including the trunk) and stamped it multiple times to create a graphic background. The circles do still have the branch in the middle, but since I rotated the stamp in different directions, I was hoping that would call less attention to its origins as a tree.
The adorable bird and balloon are from LS Exclusives So Tweet with Evelin T. Designs, and the sentiment is from The Party. I added some b&w washi tape to the top of the sentiment flag. And then some fun red and pink polka-dot patterned paper inside.
So, now it's over to you! What magic can you create by using your stamps in a way that's not intended? I sure hope you can play along. I'll be watching to see what you create!
