Wink Faux Kaleidoscope Stamping?

In response to a challenge to do a piece of 'circular' stamping, I decided to go kaleidoscopic, but it's not a 'true' version. For that, you need to include mirror-image stamping. Much more complicated.

This is simpler.

1. Cut out a paper circle the size you want to use.
2. Fold the circle to create segments. I folded my circle into 8 segments.
3. Cut out 1 of the v-shaped segments to make a mask.
4. Stamp your image(s) in the 'v'.
5. Turn the mask & stamp the image so it butts up to the first impression.
6. Continue turning & stamping until the circle is complete.

I'm going to try this. Now to find the right image to fit the wedge.

Thanks for sharing. You are always so helpful.

Thanx Claudia.

Yes. Finding a 'good fit' for the Vee can be a challenge, but partial images can often produce fun results when repeated in this way.

Daniel you know what I am going to say since I love every single card you make. ! I love your card. !

I love gothic stamping. I am crazy about your card. I love the skulls.

Who needs that Inkadinkado stamping gear thingy. I forgot what it's called. You did the same thing without it.

When Inkadinkado's stamping gear first came out I tried to use a Spellbinder scallop circle to achieve similar results to mixed results. The last stamping was always a bit off. This would be much easier to line up, WTG Daniel!

Actually, Stacy, this was my first try & mine is a bit 'off', too. But I know how to correct (I think).

1. When you make the divided circle mask, save the frame & use it as a mortise mask. That will help keep you in the space.
2. Be sure you are butting up the images stamped in the 'V-opening'.

With the piece I shared, I used a morsels stamp to fill in obvious gaps. HTH

That's a fun idea, Daniel. It would also work with 6 wedges, ala snowflakes.

Great results! It does not have to be perfect to work. Using a small filler helps to complete the look.
