Stretch Your Stamps OnLine Card Class, Day 11

Day 11
Reverse Stamps

I haven't given much thought to Reverse Stamps as I have always viewed them as dark, but after today's class... watch out!!!  I only have a few and this is the only big one I own. While it is not as detailed as the one demo'd in class, it did give me a chance to play around...

I used regular Crayola Pencils to color this, blending several colors

I used Copic Markers on this, blending several colors and also using the Blending Pen. I stamped this on textured card stock which gave a different backgound look

I used the Crayola Pencils again and decided to mix it up. I think the sunflowers look more like Gerbera Daisies now...

I  mounted each panel on CoreOrdinations 4x6 Paper that I embossed with various folders. Wanting to keep the dark tone going, I then applied each to black card stock. Since I choose black, I put a tag inside each card for a hand written note.

Sorry about this blurry pic, but you get the idea...


  1. I like the most colorful one!! Great job you did!! Barb F

  2. Love all three of them! Inspiration for sure

  3. I like the very colorful one too, the flowers pop right out at you, just gorgeous

    grrrrr I hate the proof, take too many tries.

  4. I vote for the first one. The colors are so vibrant.

  5. Loved the colourful one - it was the one that drew my eye in the gallery. Great job!

  6. I love your results! I favor the colorful one. And I superlove the idea of putting a tag inside on the dark paper to write on. I've usually cured that problem with a slightly smaller sheet of vellum but now I have another option. Thanks!
