One stamp challenge

I joined a stamp-a-thon this weekend and Friday's challenge was using one stamp as the main focal image. First picking out "THE" stamp was a bit of a challenge, and then not making them all look exactly alike was challenging. I guess that's why they call it a "challenge"! I could have added a lot of doo-dahs and different papers, but...I had just cleaned my studio area and I didn't want to make a huge mess again. I'd just done a collage-a-thon recently and I make such a huge mess that it takes me forever to dig myself out again. So, I added different images to each and colored them using watercolor crayons and inks. I made the little black/white emblishments and added those to each pic. Adding color to any image is my first and true love so that's the way I always end up.

These are gorgeous, Renu! I love the range of colors and backgrounds you used. I think my fave is the last one with the cherry blossoms and the bright sunny day.
