Two Techniques using white pigment ink

Last week end I showed my Florida stamping buddies how to do a technique called Rainbow Double. Dawn thought for sure I had the wrong name. She thought it was called Vanilla Double. So tonight I'm going to show you the difference. This is Rainbow Double.

For this we stamped our almost solid image with Versa mark randomly around the Glossy card stock. Brayered with a Rainbow Pad. Pounce your embossing buddy all around and then stamp a few more images with white Pigment ink. Pour on White embossing powder. Shake off the excess and heat emboss. Stamp a few more images with a matching dye ink. Use as a background for your card. Now remember this is Rainbow Double.

Now for Vanilla Double.

Take a piece of regular dark colored card stock and stamp an open image randomly around with white Pigment ink. You can use more than one stamp and pretty much fill up the piece of card stock. Wait 30 seconds or so and wipe with a paper towel. The white ink may smear a little but that is Ok. You are softening the background.

Next take a matching dye ink and stamp a solid image right over the top of the white images. Again you can use more than one stamp.

Using a sponge add ink to the edges.

Use this as a background to make your card.

Both techniques are very similar.

Hey, Pat. Thanks for the detailed photos for the two techniques. I'm working on my Rainbow Double for the swap and am now inspired to try Vanilla Double also. You're the best! k
