Studio Monday with Nina-Marie: Adding Dimension to Solid Stamping


Hello friends! Its Nina-Marie here with you today for a new Studio Monday video! This week I am featuring Reverse Confetti stamps and dies as I show you how to add some simple dimensional details to solid stamped images.

Studio Monday with Nina-Marie

For this technique I used Prismacolor colored pencils to add dimensional shading to the flowers and leaves I stamped using Reverse Confetti’s Rose Garden stamp set.


These roses are beautiful stamped in a single color of ink, which you could definitely do. But I love to add more interest to my stamping, so by using the colored pencils to create depth, I was able to achieve a more realistic effect.

For those of you interested in the ink colors I used, I chose: Rose Apple and Teeny Bikini for the roses, Duckling for the floral sprigs, and both Jellybean and Fern for the leaves.


The sentiment you see here is from another Reverse Confetti set called A Friend Like You. I used both the Rose Apple and some Slate Gray ink to stamp the sentiment.


For the background of the floral arrangement, I created stripes with a Copic marker and ink blended a bit of Jellybean ink. To embellish the card I sprinkled a few Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh in between the roses for a bit of shine.

I hope you will be checking out the video to see how I created the dimensional roses! Thanks for stopping by and visiting me today… I’ll be back again very soon!
