Inspired Stamps-1 Verse/3 Techniques

This week the Design Team at Inspired Stamps is sharing 3 cards created with a single $3.99 Scripture Stamp.  I chose John 14:6 for my cards.  The first card I am sharing uses the emboss resist technique.  I stamped the verse in Versamark ink and then sprinkled white embossing powder on it.  I used my heat gun to melt the powder.  Once it was cool, I used a sponge to apply layers of color over and around the scripture.  Once I was pleased with the results, I used a tissue to wipe the ink off the embossed scripture.  I was very pleased at how crisp the stamping looked with embossing.  That's the beauty of Inspired Stamps clear polymer material!

On the 2nd card, I simply stamped the scripture in black over a tag I had used my brayer and various shades of pink on.  If you click on the photo you can see the detail better.  I used Glitter Gel to highlight three words in the scripture.  This was definitely the easiest technique and  card to make but I think it really has a great impact.
 I believe the 3rd card is my favorite of the 3.  I used a lovely green vellum to stamp the scripture on.  Vellum does not take dye ink well so I used archival ink and a heat gun to set it.  Again, Inspired Stamps stamp beautifully in any medium!  Be sure to check all the other team members' blogs.  You will be amazed at how versatile one 3.99 stamp can be!
