 Create new scenes by combining stamps from different sets. I used stamps from three different sets to create this card. Believe it or not, the lady and girl holding hands is an image from "Beautiful Moments." The man holding his daughter is from "A Good Man." I think they work well together here, forming a family. The scenic elements are from "Waterfront." Thoughts?

   A Good Man
   Beautiful Moments

   Basic Gray A-2

The mountains, land masses, and ocean are all stamped two or more times before re-inking. So, you are stamping-off, but on the card front to create the image.

I made a mask of the family first by stamping on a couple of post-it notes and cutting them out. You can also just stamp on regular paper and dab the back with temporary adhesive. I used yellow post-it notes so that I could see them easily. 

I then stamped the family on my card front, masked them, and then proceeded to build the scene around them. Here is a picture with the mask on the family.

You do want to be careful when you are stamping. My mask came off and stuck to the stamp at the end of my stamping. I did not notice, until I had stamped again. Oops...Makes it a unique card. The flaws make the cards special. Agree?

As you can see, I started with the mountains. Next, I stamped the land masses at the base of the mountains. Lastly, I stamped the water between land.

I then removed the masks and colored the images with markers. You can use any medium you have on hand.
