Hi again, Simon friends! Teri here, and I’m excited to visit again!
Today, I wanted to share with you a really simple technique for using clear stamps. Rather than using just the front side of a stamp, stamp with the back side, too!
This technique is really fun with stamps of images (like flowers and leaves) that are mostly line art!
I created this artsy little card by stamping with the back side of the flower (from the Poppy Sentiments set from Technique Tuesday).
The stamping went down like this:
First, I flipped my stamp over. And then I applied red ink to flower portion of it. (By the way, I got a little overzealous with the inking on my card and got a little bit on the stem, but that’s OK. That extra ink just adds to the artsy look of the technique.)
Then I stamped on paper and got something like this.
I cleaned the stamp, flipped over (right side up) and stamped the flower with black ink.
I used the exact same stamping technique with this card here.
Thanks for having me today! And I hope you consider giving the technique a try!
