Ink Techniques: Stamping Off

Stamping Off is a simple idea that yields big results in lots of ways. Just as the name implies, you ink your stamp and stamp any number of times before re-inking. The image becomes lighter with each stamp.

Lighten the colour of an outline image
I used just one colour of ink on this card, but I stamped the outline image behind the sentiment on scrap paper first before stamping the mat to lighten the colour.

Tiny Flowers Detail
To make these little flowers punch the 4-petal flower and pierce a hole in the centre. Then tie a knot in the end of a piece of hemp twine and trim the end close to the knot. Thread the twine through the hole in the flower and secure with a dot of glue.
Lighten the colour of a solid image
The sentiment was layered over a solid image stamp with the same colour of ink, lightened by stamping on scrap paper.

Motion
Create the illusion of motion by stamping an inked image 3 times. Start with the final position depicting the end of the action and go backwards in time, so to speak with each subsequent and lighter image.
I used markers to colour the sentiment with different colours.
