Hello everyone! It’s Shari here with something a little different for you. I’m taking a look at some techniques that are possible using the Simon Says Stamp White Pigment ink.
The most common techniques for this ink would be to stamp on color cardstock to create light images or as the ink to use white embossing powder. But I want to take it little further and show you a few things you can also do with it.
Try using it on dark cardstock as a base for color pencils. A lot of the time when you try to color with pencils on darker cardstock, the color gets lost. With the white base, your colors pop! This technique works best with bold or solid type stamp images, and gives you a chance to use your pencils with an image you otherwise wouldn’t use.
Another fun technique is Velveteen stamping. How this is done is to stamp an image using the white ink onto white cardstock. Then stamp another image on top. The white ink almost resists the dye ink, leaving you with both images. This technique works best when using a fine or detail stamp with the white ink and a bolder more solid image with your colored ink on top.
One of my favorite techniques is to do ghost stamping which creates a drop shadow. This technique is done by using the same stamp, first using white and in this case my second image is stamped with Fog ink. I typically like to have my ink color match my cardstock color, so I’ve used Fog cardstock as the base. This technique is most effective with bold type images, even messages with a heavy font.
I’ve shot a video showing how to do these techniques which you can watch below or on our YouTube channel.
