Technique #1: Second Generation Stamping


Stamp a image on the card front (or any other project) and then, without re-inking it, stamp it one more time to get a lighter impression.
The ink used here was a blue dye ink.
See the final project using this technique HERE.

Also try this technique with pigment inks...which we did in the "Thinking of You" Card. You can see the second and the third generation images stamped.

This is a great technique for creating backgrounds and/or adding depth to individual images (see picture below)!
