Technique Thursday - Rock n Roll

Rock & Roll Technique

1) Tap stamp on light-colored ink pad (Lucky Limeade).

2) Press edges of stamp in a rolling motion on darker ink pad (Island Indigo), being careful not to ink the center of the stamp.

3) Stamp your image.

  • Always use the lightest colored ink first to avoid getting dark ink on your light ink pad.
  • This technique works best when using a bold stamp image.

  • Supplies used:
    Circle Circus Stamp Set
    Petite Pairs Stamp Set
    Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade Card Stock
    Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon
    Scallop Oval Punch
