The Same but Different - Fun with a few Challenges

I enjoy taking one image and changing a few things to come up with some different card ideas.  I picked my focal image Keep the Lamp Burning from Our Daily Bread Designs, then went to work with a few techniques from The Technique Junkie Newsletter.  While I was combining things, I added in a few challenges: City Crafter's Let your Light Shine, Our Daily Bread Designs Texture It, The Artistic Stamper Sing a Rainbow and Simon Says Stamp and Show your Layers.

The end result......





For all three cards I used the same colors of Glimmer Mist: Scarlet Red, Sunflower, Olive, Denim and Purple.  All three use Texture Fades Embossing Folders, color was added to the embossed areas.  The first two use the same technique Pulled Glimmers, the Glimmer Mist was applied in the same order.  The last card uses the Glimmer Mist Watercolor Technique, again using the same colors of Glimmer Mist.

Details:
Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs
Ink - Black Archival, Amethyst, Lavender, Banana
Card Stock - Matte White, Black, Amethyst, Lavender, Banana, Bashful Blue
Other - Texture Fades Folders, Big Shot
