Adding Ink Shading To Solid Image Stamps
Hi there everyone!
Today I'm sharing a sweet card that uses solid stamps but I will show how to get variation in the colouring.
I used the beautiful set from Mama Elephant 'Brushed Florals' for both my images and sentiment. I started by stamping the sentiment in a black ink so I could then stamp the flowers and leaves without stamping over it.
To get the different shades of colour on the solid stamps, I first stamped the image in a light colour for a base. I then inked up the same image using a darker shade of ink but then took off the ink on the edges of the image with a small sponge and then stamped this on top of the lighter image I already stamped. I love this look and I think it does help you get more out of solid image stamps you have.
Once I finished stamping I wanted the sentiment to 'pop' more so I cut around it using Lil Inkers 'Stitched Circle Mats'. I adhered the panel to my card base flat and added the sentiment circle with foam tape.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you like my card.
Hugs, Lydia x
