The first way to use collage stamps is called Deconstructed Collage.
To deconstruct them, we are using the different images in the stamp, colored separately, as "popped" elements on the final piece.
In the picture above, I have stamped the image several times. One of the images was kept intact and colored. The other stamped pieces were colored and cut apart. Pop dots were added to the back of the individual elements, and they were placed over the base image.
The second way that we are using the stamp is called Frosted Dylusions.
To start, stamp and heat emboss the image on Watercolor paper using white (or clear) embossing powder.
Working on a craft mat, spray several colors of Dylusions Spray in different puddles adjacent to one another. Spray the ink puddles with Pearl Ex or Glimmer Mist to add shimmer.
Dip the embossed watercolor paper into the color and move around gently.
Lift the paper and let set for a moment of two, then dab off the excess color with a paper towel.
The third idea for using collage stamps is the simplest. It just involves coloring the image with your favorite medium.
or the image on the left, I used Peerless Watercolors. Note that the sale price on Peerless Watercolors with the 10% discount will be maintained on my site until the end of the month.
Finally, our last way to use collage stamps is to use Gelatos. Simply stamp the collage image with StazOn, and color the image roughly with a generous amount of Gelato color. Use a dabber to move the colors around, back and forth over the image, pushing the colors out to the sides.
To finish the card, a Gel pen was used to highlight different areas on the collage stamp. Note that Gelatos are still on sale on my site also.
