Movie Stars

I recently purchased a sheet of rubber stamps from The Stampsmith featuring photo images of movie stars. I adore these images and made some cards using them. The focus is definitely on the movie star, so I decided to keep the cards simple -- no fancy or complicated techniques or layouts.

I'm sure you recognize Lucille Ball and Betty Grable. It's taken me a while to be able to get good, clean stampings from these detailed photo image stamps. When I finally broke down and purchased a Versafine inkpad (by Tsukineko) I couldn't believe the results. This inkpad is specifically designed to capture the details in fine rubber stamps, such as those created from photos.
