This stamp set will make you awesomely artistic! Of course, you are probably wondering why I think that a stamp set can make you artistic.
Use this stamp set to create a variety of cards using different techniques. Can you spot the techniques? No? Well, the techniques used are: watercolour, heat embossing, die cutting, splatter, and emboss resist, But, you think, I use those techniques how does that stamp set make be artistic. Because it’s not what you use, but how you use it.
It’s about placement of the stamps, layers, embellishments, to die cut, embossing, watercolour or not, In other words, what I am saying is, just by picking up a stamp and stamping with it makes you artistic in the world of paper crafting.

First the main image was stamped in VersaMark and embossed with White Emboss Powder. Don’t forget to use your embossing buddy.
