Technique Tuesday - on Wednesday!

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:

  1. Ink your stamp in one color of ink. Use the lightest shade of your chosen inks.
  2. 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.
  3. You can play around with a little extras like adding two different accent inks. You may also roll just one side of the stamp.
  4. Play around with different looks and have fun.
Try this technique on your next layout or card. Happy Stamping!
