Three of a kind



I saw the challenge to make three of the same card, each using the same stamp/stamps but with different sentiments and different ink/cardstock on One Layer Wednesday. This is a new stamp from Hero Arts which I bought at Sir Stampalot last week. 
For the first card I simply stamped the image using the big and juicy "hyrandgea" pad (clue in the title ha ha!) which just fitted the stamp in all the right places colour wise. I then added one of my new A Griffin sentiment stamps. This is the card I would like to enter into this weeks Less Is More challenge too for a thanks or congratulations card.
For the second card I stamped the image using a versamark pad and applied purple embossing powder to the flower head. I then daubed some ink on the leaves and around the image adding another of the AG stamps.
The last card was again stamped with the versamark, but this time I used chalks to add colour. I then stamped with the versamark a sentiment from PTI to give a watermark effect, just rubbing chalk over one of the sentiments near the bottom of the card.
