Fresh Fruit-Technique Tuesday
This pear looks good enough to eat. It uses the double rock and roll technique.
1. Ink the stamp using Pear Pizzazz and then stamp off on scrap paper before stamping on the card.
2. Ink the stamp a second time using the Pear Pizzazz full strength by rolling the edges of the stamp into the same color ink.
3. Since this is a photo polymer stamp set you can look through the stamp and stamp it on top of the first image. When you look at the stamped image the rock and rolling makes some great shading on the final image.
4. The background is made using the clear Wink of Stella mixed with a little bit of Daffodil Delight ink.
This simple but fun technique can be used on solid stamps to give a 3-D look.
Come back tomorrow to see a WOW card we made in Champaign at the Vacation Stamping School.
