3 challenges, one main image

Happy Saturday everyone! I did something really fun this weekend and I know I’ll be doing it again with my stamping. I took 1 main image and used it for 3 different challenges. I focused on one main technique – Emboss Resist. Each challenge gave me a different idea of what to do with the main stamp I wanted to use. The stamp is the “In My Heart” image from the February Club Sursee by Catherine Pooler

I started out by playing with it using the Emboss resist technique and some of my favorite colors by CP – All that Jazz, In the Park, and Cummerbund

I ink blended over the white embossed image – so pretty! I actually made an Instagram Reel of this one coming together. Head over there to see it!

I wanted to play with this cute image a couple more times. I took inspiration from the Color Throwdown color challenge, which looked very “Citrus” to me and I loved it!

I was also inspired by the idea to use watercolor when I saw that Happy Little Stampers had a “watercolor Anything Goes” challenge up

I grabbed the colors inspired by Color Throwdown and did watercolor over the image

I love those fun colors together!! The background is from the die that came in the Feb Club Sursee too called “Along the Arbor”. I cut it 3 times across my card panel

Finally, with my last embossed heart, I used Zig Clean Color pens. I scribbled a few complimentary colors in the pink/purple category and then sprayed it to blend them together

I used the sketch challenge over at Try Stampin’ On Tuesday as my idea for a layout for this final card

That cute background is the “Quilted Cover” background die by CP too

So as you can see, I used all Catherine Pooler products and focused on the one main image. It was so fun to do!! I frequently feel like I get stamps and they get put away with getting love. This was so fun to make these 3 cards and give my February Club Sursee some use!

Can you give this a try? Grab a stamp set or 2, a couple of dies, and look through some challenges! They are so fun to play along with and great ideas come from them!

Thank you for stopping by to take a look at these. Have a wonderful rest of your weekend!
