An old technique revisited with a twist with Wonderful World stamps and papers


The technique of adding ink to stamps with our Stampin' Write markers was one of the very first techniques I learnt over 12 years ago.  It allows you to ink up different parts of a single stamp with different colours, which is great for many stamp designs. Here are just a few ideas:

  • Floral images so you can have stalks in one colour, and mutiple flower colours
  • Text stamps can have words ommitted
  • Floral images can have more colour detail - darker centres for example
  • Rainbow effect images

Here are 2 cards made at coffee and card last week, the one on the left being the colour inspiration for my card today. 


The twist is that I used our Stamparatus stamp positioning tool with the image so that we could add the colour in layers.   I used a cotton bud to remove the extra ink after inking up the flower.

You can see how I achieved that here:

The stamp set I used was Wonderful World, which has these stunning matching papers - you can see them in the video.  I used Rich Razzleberry ink for the iris, and a mix of Mossy Meadow and Old Olive marker pens for the stalks/leaves.  This stamp set is simply stunning.

These stamps and papers can be earned for FREE with an order over £90 placed between 1st July and 31st August (whilst stocks last). Orders which include Class in a Box (£20) are not included, unless the total product value exceeds £90.  If in doubt, just ask !
