    I'm struggling with making mine look like anything. The stamps seem to just blend into each other. Having said that, I have one I like so far, so I won't despair yet!

    plumhill2001, please don't despair! i tossed a few cards, before i felt happy with the end result. i started with very simple drawings and i tried to make the stamps the focal point on these cards:

    IMG_2014 (1).jpg i call this "bird on a wing"
    IMG_2015 (1).jpg i call this "frida/buddha"

    i will try more birds, i think that animals lend themselves to this technique.

    Got #2 done!
    Like your cards! I think I'll try something with animal cards, too!

    I call these two "Dance" and "Nude in a Summer Frock", lol. It was kind of challenging to get the dress to cover her!

    Wish I had thought of tracing paper! It would have made it a lot easier!

    well, plumhill2001, you did a terrific job without it! it does help with layering, though!

    actually, i lightly tape the pieces of the stamps to the tracing paper shape, then cut the stamp and tracing paper together.
    i used to eyeball the shapes, but this seems to be way more precise. i still make wrong cuts, but then i use scotch tape on the back to put the pieces back together.
