One Stamp - Two Ways

How are you all? I haven't posted in nearly a week ... just been busy doing DT projects whilst I still have some inspiration ... 
I hope all my friends across the pond enjoyed Mothering Sunday ... We celebrated way back in March ... but I did get to go to a 50th Birthday party on Sunday afternoon and it poured with rain all day which was such a shame as we were hoping to sit outside ... I'm sure everyone had fun just the same ... And of course we had sunshine the next day ... even had hailstones thrown in!
Before I get onto today's DT project ... can I just say a big "Thank You" to Heather and the ladies at Flourishes for my win ... I'm delighted!

Ok ... Today is the start of a new challenge at City Crafter where we have our creator the lovely Kirsty hosting for us with a great challenge 

Create 2 projects using the same stamp but in different ways
Please note it MUST be an image stamp NOT a sentiment stamp

I went with the rose stamp from La Blanche ... I've been using this a lot lately
The first card shows the image stamped simply onto white cardstock using Teal Momento ink and the second card shows the image stamped using distress stains spritzed with water

The background paper is from the  Eline's Huis Roses are Red collection and I just added some Washi tape and trims from my supplies

... Here's the second card

One stamp 2 ways
Which do you prefer?

Our Guest designer is the uber talented Colleen Dietrich who won our week 156 challenge with her beautiful card ... I can't wait to see what Colleen and the rest of the designers have created so I'm off to the blog to take a look ... Our winner this week will also have a GD spot with us so get out your stamps and play and don't forget to create 2 cards or projects

Have a beautiful day and I'll be back tomorrow
Thanks so much for stopping by
