Did you notice that there are five stamp sets in the Jan-Apr mini catalog that are available in both photopolymer AND rubber (cling)? I was thrilled to see that those are options for some stamps. With Two-Step stamp sets, the only obvious choice is photopolymer, otherwise how would you line up the filler stamps with the outline stamps?
But with some others, like this Lighting the Way set, you don't need photopolymer unless you prefer that type of stamp, and many stampers do! I used a Blending Brush to add Starry Sky to white cardstock, making it darker at the top and lightening it as it went lower, like the sky as night is falling. Stars were added with a white gel pen and Sparkle & Shine sequins.
Behind the lantern some Daffodil Delight was added lightly for the lantern glow. To make the glowing globe of the lantern, some more D.D. was blended on a scrap of white, concentrating more color in the center. I cut just the center part of the lantern from this and replaced the copper foil "glass" pieces to make the light shine. The greeting is from the Happy Labels stamp set, which is also available in photopolymer or cling!Product List
