A technique remembered

Marcia had showed us this Pigment ink technique at a get together not too long ago. I came right home and cut out all kinds of fun foam to make my shadow stamps. I mount 2 layers of the fun foam on EZ Mount. Easy!



Since that time I have been trying to remember what we did. Today as I was working on a Shadow stamp project it all came back. So I thought I would make a tutorial. You need a light Pigment ink and a dark Dye ink. A Collage type stamp. One without writing as this will be reversed in the end. And your shadow stamp.



Ink your Shadow stamp with your Pigment ink.



Ink your Collage stamp with your Dye ink.



Stamp your image onto the shadow stamp and tap the dye ink pad along the edges.



Stamp this onto your card stock. You're ready to make a card.



And here are the 2 cards that I made this afternoon. I added just a little bit of color with pencils.

I love this technique. I am headed to my studio to see if I have any fun foam. I have a mirror stamp and may have to try that. kk

Forgot to ask. Who makes that cabin with daisy flowers stamp? It is a perfect image for NC summers. kk
