One thing I love about stamping, is being able to use the same stamp and get different looks. One of my favorite things to do is “overlap” images.
Here’s a quick and easy overlapping technique:
Stamp your image onto a piece of plain white cardstock, then cut the image out.
When you have your “masque” cut out, stamp an image in the center of your cardstock. Place the cut out image over top of it, then reink your stamp and stamp a new image, slightly to the right, overlapping the “masque”.
When you pull up the cut out, you’ll have a stamped image behind your first one.
Repeat the process until you have several images in a row. It looks best if you have an odd number of images.
Once you have all of your images stamped, color them in using your chosen medium. For my sample, I used Copic Markers and a Sakura Glitter Pen and alternated them.
When your coloring is complete, cut out the images and attach them to your cardstock base. I prefer to use Helmar Liquid Scrapdots for dimension.
Don’t throw away your “masque” when you’re finished, you can use it over and over again!
