The first card I will talk about is this week's Missing You card.
And now I will show you step by step how to layer with one ink pad to get this look. First, here are the items I used for the stamping of this image. I used Palette ink pad and two stamps from the Regal Greetings set.
Next, I inked up my image and stamped it lightly on a scrap paper.
Once I have done that, I still had some ink left on my stamp, and that is what I used to stamp my image on the paper I wanted to stamp on. See, how much lighter that is compared to the first stamped image?
Last I was ready to stamp my sentiment and since I wanted this to pop, I inked it up with the same ink pad and stamped it direct over the Fleur-de-lis image and that is all it took to create a layered stamped look. Pretty neat, isn't it???
My next example is from last week's hop card, which again, I used a layered stamp look, but this time I did use two different colors. The key to is, to play around with the colors, preferable use a lighter color for the background stamp image, so it's a little subdued, and doesn't over power the image you want to focus on.
To create this card, here are the items I used. Two different ink pads and two different stamps from the What Matters Most set.
First you want to stamp your background stamp image with the lighter color.
Than you will stamp over the lighter color image your darker color image, which in my case was a sentiment.
And there you have it....you have a pretty stamped image ready to dress up into a pretty card. Hope you like the look and will give it a try, if you haven't yet.
And now I will leave you with today's inspirational quote, which hope you will love as much as I do!
Have a Fabulous day!
