Make It Monday

KISSING!! That's what I'll be doing today. Before you start to pucker up, let me tell you what it really is. It is a stamp technique, and a pretty easy one at that, that will allow you to add texture to a solid stamp.
You start off with a solid stamp. I used my alphabet's in this demo. But anything would work, a flower, square, leaf, anything that you have that has a solid image when stamped. You will also need 2 coordinating colors.
Ink the solid stamp in the lighter color.
Then ink a smaller stamp (any stamp) in the darker color. Using your small stamp, actually stamp onto the solid stamp. (Stamp your small stamp with the darker color on it, onto the solid stamp with the light color on it.)

It should look something like this when it is done.

Stamp the solid stamp on cardstock. This is what my letter's look like when I am all finished with them.

Next, all you do is finish your card! So easy! Hope you enjoy your week! Stay tuned for a special post I will be posting on Wed!!!

This is a technique I have known about, but never tried. You inspired me to give it a go. Your site is nice, I love the background! Kerilou
