Hi and welcome to my blog. It is time for another Oldies technique. Today I am showing how to do shadow stamping. I have not used this technique in years and had nearly forgotten about it! I like this because it is so simple yet really neat looking.
Here are the supplies you will need:
any lighter color ink ( I used a tan pigment ink )
light card stock
several stamps to stamp over the shadow
dark ink ( I used Distress Faded Jeans )
Here are some examples of a shadow stamp. It is any stamp that is pretty large and solid so that you can stamp something over top of it. Here I have an oval and rectangle shape.
I am working with the oval shaped shadow stamp. I have stamped it with the lighter color ink. I like using pigment ink on the shadow stamp because it seems to go on more evenly and stamp more evenly, but you can use dye inks as well.
Here is the result after I have stamped it on the card stock.
Now you can take your other stamps and stamp over the top of this shadow using your darker ink.
That's all there is to it! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day. I hope you have a fun time working with this technique.
