Technique Tuesday

Stamping with Markers

1) Use a Stampin' Write marker to apply color to the stamp. Ink only the part of the image you need.

2) Add other colors if desired.

3) Breathe onto the inked image to remoisten the ink before stamping onto paper.

  • For a more muted, watercolor look, spray a fine mist of water on the stamp instead of breathing on it.

    Technique Tuesday

    Stamping Off

    1) Ink a stamp.

    2) Stamp the image.

    3) Re-stamp the image one or more times without re-inking it.

  • This technique is a great way to get several shades of color from a single ink pad.
  • This technique is also a great way to show motion, such as a ball moving through the air.
