As mentioned in previous posts, I have decided to showcase the January 2014 KOM, Be your own kind of Beautiful to show just how versatile these kits are.
For today's post, I have made two cards using the same stamps. For the first one I took a softer approach, and stamped the sentiment using distress ink to create a background, which I then splattered with water to give it a softer look. I also used baker's twine and star brads to accent the image.
Although, I was pleased with the outcome, I felt like the image would really 'pop' if embossed in white on a dark background. So I did just that, and then also added some of the smaller star images stamped off in silver a few times before stamping on the card stock, to soften them. I also had some really cute dies in planets and stars that I included for some added interest.
So there you have it, two completely different styles of card using the same images.
