Stamp on Transparencies

Design by Nikki Krueger

Small acrylic stamps work well individually on stamps and cards or together for a whimsical background or border. As a bonus, each stamp can be reversed for a solid stamped image and then flipped over to stamp a pattern.

Clearly, Nikki's on to something by stamping on a transparent background and coloring the flowers with a pen that's safe for slick surfaces. To tie the greeting and background together, she substituted the "o" with two layered patterned papers stamped using the same design.
