I needed a congratulations on your new home card for a guy, and was having a really difficult time coming up with a masculine type card for the occasion. I love my Stampscapes stamps but hardly use them. It's been a long time since I took a class on how to use them, and I forget how to add color to the images. They're stamped on glossy cardstock. I know you can brayer first on the cardstock to add color and then stamp, but I'm brayer challenged, I always end up with lines on my paper, so I try to avoid the brayer at all costs. With stampscapes, you take several stamps and use them to create a scene. I used about 4 or 5 stamps on my card. I think it turned out okay considering it's just a simple black & white card. It was quick to make and I think I acheived the look I was going for! I'm going to a stamp convention next month and the Stampscapes company is going to be at the show. I'm hoping to see a demo and get a refresher on some coloring tips!
