Oldies Technique #4 -- Rock N Roll

Hi Everyone! I hope you are having a good day. I want to share another easy Oldies technique called Rock N Roll. The name comes from kind of rocking and rolling your stamp around in an ink pad.

Supplies needed:

two colors of pigment ink pads
solid stamp
white or cream card stock

Ink up your stamp with the lightest color of pigment ink. Pigment ink stays juicy longer and this is helpful with this technique as you will see.

Do not stamp yet. Take your second color and roll the stamp around the edges on the ink pad. You will see that you have a border around the inked stamp. The ink is still wet even though you haven't stamped yet. Yes, your pad may get a little muddied, but you can lightly wipe off the top ink and usually it fades away after stamping off on paper a few times.

 Stamp your image onto the card stock.

I really like the artsy look of this. Here is another picture of this image using teal and red.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope your day is wonderful and I hope to see you back here again on  March 19th to see another Oldie!
