My 3rd Take with "Youthful" Cling Stamp

Hello friends!
I am popping in to share my 3rd version with Youthful

Card #1
thank you (4)

Card #2
birthday wishes -002
It is amazing how one stamp can have all different looks. 
It is up to you and I to use various inks and techniques to make it shine!
I went back to the 100% stamped design and this is it. 
happy birthday 

 The design is all about stamping and ink-blending.

For a change, there is no embossing involved.

This is a great stamp to practice Color-Layering (card #1)

Selective-Embossing/Partial-Embossing (see card #2),
 Ink-Blending (card #3)
happy birthday
One thing about today's card is that you want to make sure the Distress Oxide are completely dry before you start ink-blending. This prevents smudging and contaminate the colors.

I used Ranger Sponges for all my ink-blending.

For the directions of ink-blending,  it is vital to start from outer area and work your way towards the middle. No fancy shamancy ink-blending brushes were needed or used.  You may know this already, you can check my Instagram Story (highlighted feature) as I shared how I made a DIY Ink-blender (with a toothbrush!). still offers 30% off Distress Oxide

Hope that you find today's post extra interesting as I have 3 cards with one stamp.
Thank you for stopping by!

All three "takes" on the Youthful stamp are gorgeous. Card two is my favorite, I have to admit.
