Saturday Special - Collage Stamping

It's Saturday and I have a Saturday Special for everyone. Collage Stamping is very easy and a lot of fun. You layer your stamps one over the other.

For this card I started out with Antique Linen Distress Ink and stamped a Text Stamp..

 Then over that I stamped this beautiful Lace Border Stamp by Donna Salazar. I used Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and using the same Ink I stamped my bushes or thistle is what I call it. LOL .. 

I then inked the edges also with Brushed Corduroy.. Because Distress Inks stay wet for a long time I used my heat tool to dry the inks as I was going to Emboss on my next step. I took two butterflies and put them onto my stamping block positioning them the way I wanted them to appear on my paper.. I used Black Soot Distress Ink.. You can emboss with Distress inks because of the fact of them staying wet for a long time. 

Once I stamped the butterfly's I pour clear embossing powder on them and using my heat tool I embossed them..After that had dried I took a dauber and with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink I went gingerly around the butterflies to give them a pop of color.. I then distressed the edges of the paper with a Tim Holtz distress tool and added Vintage Photo Distress Ink to now distressed edges...

 I then put my card together embellishing with a Prima Flower and some bling. 

I love Collage Stamping as it can give you some beautiful

Give it a try..
