Welcome back to part deux of my spotlight on "Elizabeth", the très chic à la carte stamp from Stampin’ Up! That's French for: part two of a post about a very fashionable individual stamp. At least I think it's French and then I had to look up which way all the little thing-a-ma-jigs go. (Not to be confused with Stamp-a-ma-jigs. Different post. Sorry.) Hee! Okay, you can stop rolling your eyes now. Let's get on with it, shall we?
Keeping with a clean and simple (CAS) theme, I stamped the main image directly onto Confetti Cream card stock using Early Espresso. The sentiment (from Fabulous Phrases) is stamped inside the oval using Marina Mist. To add a bit of interest I spritzed the card using the Color Spritzer Tool with Early Espresso and Marina Mist markers.

Ready to kick it up a notch?
I wasn't done yet, in fact I played quite a bit with this lovely lady (which I'll save for another time). But I wanted to try one more using the emboss resist technique. I stamped the image using VersaMark onto Very Vanilla card stock, then embossed with clear embossing powder. Next, using a sponge dauber and Rich Razzleberry ink, I started swirling on color starting outside the embossed image and working my way in. I know it doesn't look like Rich Razzleberry, which is quite dark and rich, but sponging lightly onto Very Vanilla produced this result. Which I liked! Also, I think the color in the photo is off a tad. Sigh. I then hand cut the image, trimming away the excess sponging.

Finally, I ran a piece of Very Vanilla through the Big Shot using the Backgrounds 1 (Swirly) Texturz Plate. I mounted this directly to a slightly larger piece of Very Vanilla, snipped the corners and mounted it to my Very Vanilla card base using Dimensionals. I added the embossed focal image last, using Dimensionals once again for added pop.
I think this one is my favorite, although for quick and easy I must admit I like the previous one quite a lot. How about you? I'd love to know which one you like best - please leave me a comment below. Don't forget yesterday's two entries found HERE.
