Oh dear, now this post is messy 😦 really messy. The technique is inky yes, but there is no need to make as much of a mess as me! (check out the video tutorial to see what I mean!)
This is stamp rolling, adding more than one ink colour to a round stamp from two different ink pads. I needed a circular stamp for this and just had to use I Think You’re Great again! The first card uses Bermuda Bay and Pool Party to create a two-tone stamped image, while the card on the right uses Cherry Cobbler and Real Red.
See, isn’t it so super simple (if you manage to keep hold of your stamps, unlike me!)
Ink you stamp with a light ink colour (I used Real Red for this card)
Take a hold of your stamp (firmly) and press the edges of the stamp into the darker ink pad in a rolling motion, ensuring you don’t touch the middle of the stamp into the ink pad
Always use the lighter colour first so you don’t get darker ink into your light ink pads
