Ink Techniques: Inked Stamp

Ink a solid image stamp with the lightest colour of  ink, then colour the stems and the tips of the petals with markers. Huff (like you're cleaning your glasses) on the stamp to moisten the ink and stamp.

Sponge Daubers
I couldn't resist layering the flowers and the grass stamps in this set.

Start applying ink to the solid image flower stamp with the lightest colour and add more colours using sponge daubers. If you get the wrong colour of ink on a part of the image, just wipe it off with a blender pen. I used two blues on the petals and two greens on the leaves. Make sure to huff on the inked image before stamping on card stock.

Ink the grass stamp with a light green pad and used a sponge dauber to randomly add a darker green ink. Then huff and stamp.

Colour the sentiment with markers to highlight a word.
