How many of these eight ways to color a bold stamp have you tried? Do you have a favorite?
Watch the video below to see each of these techniques being used.
All of these cards are the same – using the Autumn Leaves stamp set. The only difference is the colors of ink and the techniques use.
1. Shadow Effect Technique
Use the back side of the stamp for a shadow effect over the stamped image. Petal Pink was used over Pecan Pie for this card.
2. Blending Technique
Immediately after stamping your image, use a blender brush directly over the stamped image to spread the color.
3. Sponge Daubers
Ink up the entire stamp with the lightest color of ink pad.
Use sponge daubers to add other ink colors right over the lighter color. Then stamp your image.
4. Mist Your Stamp
Color as above and mist with water before stamping. Vary the amount of misting to create different looks.
5. Mist Your Cardstock
Mist your cardstock before stamping. The ink will spread out on its own. Vary the amount of misting to create different looks.
Ink up the entire stamp with a lighter color ink than the markers you will be using.
“Thump” the different colors of markers randomly all over the stamp. Be sure to make the marks go different directions.
Breathe on the stamp before stamping on the cardstock to keep all of the colors moist.
7. Wink of Stella Coloring Technique
Immediately after stamping, color the image with Wink of Stella. This will both blend the ink and add shimmer.
8. Baby Wipe Stamping Technique
Fold a baby wipe in half and place on a silicone mat or a plastic plate.
Add drops of reinker on the baby wipe. Start with several drops of the darkest color and then move to lighter colors. Use the lightest color to fill in most of the empty space.
Use this as your stamp pad. Tap the stamp several times, moving it slightly so that all of the areas get covered.
