Stampin' Up! Life in the Forest

1.21.2014

Line art images are so fun to stamp because you can use them in so many ways! One of my favorite ways to show them off is to do a technique called Paper Piecing. This is when you stamp the images onto patterned paper and then trim them out. You can get very fancy with it (a good example would be clothing on a stamped character), or you can keep it simple. Here's an example showing really simple on this baby card; check out the trees!

    1. Thank you, Holly - glad you like the card. The layout is from "deconstructed sketch"; I think you'll like their sketches as they usually have a few layers.
