Thank you for all of the positive feedback on my first post on how to use line stamps if you don't color! It seems like a lot of you are in the same boat as me. If you missed my first tip, click here.
Today I'm sharing my second tip on how to use line stamps if you don't color: Use a blending tool and Distress Inks.
Looking at this photo, the poinsettia and leaves almost look like regular cardstock, however I've added ink with a blending tool. This is very easy to do, especially on a large image like the Mondo Poinsettia. You can add shading and dimension just by adding more ink to certain parts of the image.
1. Stamp the image, then cover the entire image with a well blended coat of color.
2. Go back around the edges and add more ink.
3. Die cut the image and add even more ink to the edges.
This is the most simple way to add ink and a good choice if your image is all one color. Tomorrow I will be back with the same technique but with a bit of a twist. I hope you'll join me!
