Upside down stamping

Hi everyone! It’s Agata again! :) Today I want to show you that you can stamp with ALL sides of our stamps!

First, mount a stamp of your choice the wrong side up on your acrylic mount.

Then, ink this wrong side with the ink of your choice and stamp. I used a chalk ink on this one. You may want to repeat the impression in order to achieve the perfect coverage.

Now, wash the wrong side of the stamp and mount it again, this time the right side up, and stamp using another color.

I just love that effect! And here’s the final project:

Now, as to the how-to of my flower, I made it using the sticky back canvas. And here’s a picture which explains itself pretty well:

Hopefully, you’ll want to try this overall stamping technique! Have fun and share with us your projects!

    Wow what a great idea for a block of colour under an image. Love it. I love the flower too.

    I have seen that technique done using both sides of the stamp before, but your choice of leaf stamp makes it very effective. Great flower, too!

    I definitely have to try that technique! Since I love leaf stamps all year long, that may be the perfect place for me to start. Thanks for showing us how to do it.
