Stippled Blossoms Bud

Layering inks using 2-step stamp sets like Stippled Blossoms, makes lovely detailed images.

Use a Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to get perfect placement of the images. I make permanent imaging sheets out of thick acetate stamped with StazOn ink and keep them in the case with the stamp set.

The little leaf spray image makes a pretty background, too!

-ink the bud image on a So Saffron ink pad
-colour the calyx with an Old Olive marker
-huff on the stamp to keep the inks moist and stamp on card stock
-snug the corner of the acetate sheet into the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig
-stamp the image with StazOn ink using the corner of the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig as a guide for the stamp block
-position the image on the acetate sheet over the first image
-snug the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to the corner of the acetate sheet

-remove the acetate sheet
-ink the stamp on a Crushed Curry ink pad and colour the stem and leaves with an Always Artichoke marker
-stamp the image using the corner of the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig as a guide
