“Beary” wishes & “Beary” helpful tips
Happy Kitchen Sink Monday!
Today’s card was inspired by Lynn’s 10 min. challenge – #80 (10MC80) - “10 min. Teddy”. I would like to say it took me 10 mins… but I have 2 Teddy Bears…so it was more like 20mins.
While I was stamping this card, I realized I have some stamping tips that I hope you find helpful.
These techniques can also be found in our KSS forum under: Tutorials Cordon Blue - Extra Techniques.
TIP #1: Multi Step stamping - wet ink or dry ink.
I can hear you asking … “Wet or Dry? Aren’t all inks wet?”
Yes, there are, but with this tip I am referring to stamping each layer while the first layer of ink is still “fresh” or referred to as WET vs. allowing each layer of ink to DRY completely before stamping the next step. Really, it does make a difference to the “look” of the finished stamped image.
Here is an example:
TIP #2: How to break up a long sentiment stamp
This one might sound like butchery (gasp!), but it really is a time saver!
TIP #3: Multi Step stamping with long slender stamps – like stems.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful (and inky) week!
