Age Awareness = fun Birthday cards!

So a couple of months ago I did a presentation for "Subway Art". I made a bunch of samples and today I'm sharing two of them... let me tell you I made a lot, I mean A LOT of samples as I had so much fun with this technique. For the first sample, I covered a large clear acrylic block with stamps from the Age Awareness stamp set in a rectangular pattern. Inked up my stamps and stamped the entire thing all at once. If you wanted to make duplicates, just stamp a bunch before removing the stamps from the block. It give the look of a lot of stamping, but it's only stamped once. Then since it was so big, I didn't add too many layers or embellishments since the focus is the stamped images anyways. 
For my second share, this was one of the pieces from my initial demo where I had a medium sized block and covered it with stamps to show how easy it is to do this technique. I had a bunch left over, so rather than waste them I made a bunch of quick cards like the one below. I added some layers, some DSP, Baker's Twine and a silver metal button. Not too much, just enough to finish the card nicely. I hope you like my shares, and will try this fun technique out for yourself. Have a wonderful day :)
