1 Stamp, 4 ways

I bought the Filigree stamp from Mama Elephant and used it in several different ways and techniques.  I took my color cue from this week's pink/gray color challenge at OWH and off I went!  
Card #1: - Miss You
  I embossed the filigree in silver and the sentiment is embossed in pink. 

Card #2 - Love
I embossed the filigree in white on watercolor paper and used Tim Holtz Distress markers to color it in.  I then cut it in half and in half again to use as corner pieces on the card.

Card #3 - Thank you
I did the same embossing as before but this time, I used watercolors to color in the filigree.  It turned out with a softer glow this time.

Card #4 - Happy Birthday
I embossed the filigree and used different Distress Markers.  I cut it in half and layered it over scalloped circles.  Sentiment is Hero Arts Fancy Basics.

I stretched myself to use the stamp in different ways and love how beautiful the cards came out.
Since I worked so hard, I'm entering these cards into the following challenges:

4 Crafty chicks - Anything goes

  4. I love all the "doily" stamps I see out there, but I'm never quite sure how to use them creatively. Thanks for some great inspiration! All four cards are beautiful.
