It’s Susanne here again. This time with two christmas cards, both with the cute mini Rudolph digital stamp.
When I sat down to color Rudolph I was unsure wich tone of color to use. And it hit me that it’s we who decide what look the finished stamp and card will have and not the artist that designed the stamp. I’ll belive that our irreplaceable Kristy have a picture in her head when she create our loved odd figures but when the stamp is printed and is on the table in front of us, it’s our picture that takes over. And we decide with coloring method, color choice and what products we pair our stamp with. That’s really brave of Kristy, leaving her children in our care <3
Like this card. I chose some muted colors for Rudolph and paired that with a card with a kind of vintage feeling. Not my everyday style, but hey, I made this card to make an example for you. Proving that you can use use Some Odd Girl stamps on every project, whatever personal style you have.
The next card is really me and I can tell you that this vintage card took me over two hours to do, not counting the coloring of the stamp. I had to take the time to ponder and moving things around. And flowers! I nerver use flowers. How do they work? I only know that when other people use flowers it looks stunning but when I… Well. The next card took about 10 minutes to do, once again not counting the time it took me to color the stamp. (Both stamps are colored with my lovely Polychromos pencils BTW). I picked some design papers, decided on a christmas tree and then it was done. As simple as that.
Two cards, one stamp and two different expressions of style. What is yours?
Have a Lovely November! /Susanne
