Using the large Hero Arts starburst flower...same layout, different looks!
First up, shabby. It's loose, it's organic, it's unpredictable!
To get this effect, I colored the stamp with light and dark blue watercolor crayons, spritzed with water, and stamped. I used a somewhat spiky sentiment (discontinued Hero Arts) with serifs and script combined.
Next up, chic. It's crisp, it's clean, it's fun!
The gray and four different shades of orange and yellow bling give this a fresh, modern feel, which is reinforced by the graphic sentiment.
You can probably guess which version I prefer, but the watercolor one made me happier than I thought it would. I just think it's unbearably cool that this stamp can look so different.
Which version do you prefer?
