This was a card I did for my first assignment for Outlines Rubber Stamps. I used one of their BEAUTIFUL split layering collages. This particular one was the Judaic Split Layering Collage. I also used the Shalom stamp.
I cut out three of the images from the Split Layering Collage. I colored the images with my Copic Markers. I used the B21, 23, 24, G21, 24, 28, R22, 24, 27, 29 and Y21, YR21. I colored the edges of the blue so that they were darker, and blended inward. I also used the same blue and coloring technique on the center of the Shalom stamp. I think the flames on the top right image are my favorite. They are blended from Y21, to YR21 to R22 on the very top. I used some tip to tip technique to get the gentle fading.
After coloring, I layered on red and then blue. This was all posted on Red and then again on the blue card-stock. The Shalom stamp I stamped twice. The first on white, and the second on the blue. I used Gold stickles every other star. I cut out the outside of the image for the stars. and the inside image from the white stamp with the colored image. I layered this on the red. Because there was already so much blue, I decided that there was no need for this image to be layered again on blue.
Even though I am not of the Jewish faith, I think that these stamps are beautiful and versatile and can be used for many different occasions.
I hope everyone has a great weekend! And to everyone - Shalom.
