Technique Tuesday -- Rock N Roll

No, we are NOT going to be jammin'  today at Sparkle N Sprinkle, but the name of my technique is Rock N Roll. This is an old technique that I really like and decided to bring out again. I hope you will enjoy doing this one and will try it on some of your Spring cards. It is really easy and fun to do.

Supplies needed:
  1. various colors of pigment inks -- some light and some dark
  2. white card stock
  3. solid stamps

I use pigment inks because they stay juicier longer.  You will need a light and a dark ink for each stamp.

Next ink up the whole stamp with the light color of ink.  I started with yellow.

Now take the inked stamp and roll it around on the darker color ink pad,  just rolling the stamp around on the edges. Here I used red.

Stamp on your card stock.  Keep doing this with the other flower stamps until you have the look you want.

I also stamped more flowers, cut them out and added glitter on the edges to add interest.  I pop dotted them on top of the other flowers that I stamped first.  Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful and blessed day!

I'd forgotten about that technique - too many to remember LOL... It does a fabulous job on those solid flowers! Thanks for the memory jog.

I have not used this technique in a very long time, April, and it is always so pretty! Especially with pigment inks you can then use semi-transparent EPs over them. I used to use it mostly with shadow stamping. Thank you for reminding me! hugs, ,de

I actually learned this technique at a card class years ago - but since forgot about it! Thanks for the reminder!

Your card is so pretty and such a wonderful way to spread a smile!
