4 cards, same stamp, different looks...

Hello my dear crafty friends! Today I decided to make a kind of experiment. What about to stamp the  very same stamp with the very same ink over the  very same background  cardstock and then to color with 4 different mediums and to pick your favorite?
That's the experiment I made using Ann Butler's Background Basics Clearsnap Picnic 1 stamp, Clearsnap Snow Crafter's ink and Clearsnap Colorbox  white embossing powder over the white cardstock and then made 4 totally different cards with the die cut sentiments.
So here we go!
1. Use FC DMC Gelatos over the heat embossed image and wipe them with a baby wipe.

This kind of coloring background gives us this pastel shabby look and is great  when we need some mute, light pastel colors.

2. Use Distress inks from Ranger over the heat embossed image and add some water spray over. Let it dry.

This kind of background coloring gives us a mixed vintage look and we can add more saturation  with another ink layer and so on.

3. Make rainbow spots with punched circles self made mask and Staz-On inks in three primary colors of red, blur and yellow.  Add ink into the circles with a sponge and see how you get this 7 colors effect using just three inks.

This is a very unique look as you can mix the colors in different ways, making different shapes and to get a totally different cards with the very same inks and stamp.

4. This is a last one and my favorite coloring. I already made a very similar card with a different sentiment in my blog, but now it's one of  my experiment. I used Ann Butler's Crafter's inks in three colors and wiped the surface with baby wipe.

I really love the vivid, vibrant , live colors of those inks and the way they don't mix unless you want them to mix.
