Stretch Your Stamps: Day 5 - Outline Stamps

Hello everyone!  Today I chose to try the dimensional paper piecing technique demonstrated by Shari Carroll in the online Stretch Your Stamps 2 class.  I was able to add a few more blooms to my image and give it a little bit more dimension.  I especially liked the burnishing technique Shari used to make the petals more realistic.




Here is my well loved stamp that I added more blooms to:



Stamps:  Stampin' Up! flowers, Wetlands stamp set
Paper:  Very Vanilla Cardstock and patterened paper
Ink:  Early Espresso and Sahara Sand 
Other:  Watercolor pencils for leaves
