Oops! I forgot to post a technique yesterday instead of just a card. If I could remember what day it is, that would help. I will have to set up a reminder in my Outlook Calendar, so I don't forget.
This 6 x 6 technique page was made by Heidi Bryce, CTMH Independent Consultant. It explains how to complete stamp rolling, which I did on the sympathy card I posted yesterday. The fish on her page are stamp rolled. This is a good technique to get more than one color on my stamped image. Here are the instructions:
- Ink your stamp in one color of ink. Use the lightest shade of your chosen inks.
- Take your stamp and "roll" the edges on a second color of ink. You can use either a darker shade of the initial color or a contrasting color. It is your choice.
- You can play around with a little extras like adding two different accent inks. You may also roll just one side of the stamp.
- Play around with different looks and have fun.
