Potato carved stamp

A new Take It Make It challenge for May starts today on the Craft Stamper blog. The theme of this month's challenge is 'Stamps carved from a potato'.


This is my DT card, below. I have used potato print for the blue background and to stamp coloured panels which I used for paper piecing. I used two stamp sets for my card, Jofy collection 11 and Jofy collection 12 both from PaperArtsy.



To make my card I started by cutting the square potato stamp.
 

I used PaperArtsy Fresco Finish acrylic paints to stamp with. For the blue background I used Beach Hut and Bora Bora. I stamped directly onto a 7x7 white card blank.
 

I also stamped panels of different colours, as shown below. I stamped on smooth white card. The colours I used were Submarine, Sherbet, Very Berry, Tinned Peas, Pansy and Eggplant all Fresco Finish acrylic paints.
 

I then stamped the flowers, grasses, butterfly and sentiment onto the card blank with a Jet Black Archival ink pad.
 

I also stamped the same flowers, leaves and butterfly onto the coloured stamped card with a Jet Black Archival ink pad.
 

I cut out all the pieces and attached them to the card blank, as shown below.
 

To finish the card I painted in circles in the design again with the Fresco Finish acrylic paints.
