Its Tuesday, Technique Tuesday! and I have a great technique for you this week!
Now, I do not want you to go around hitting your stamps. Love them, treasure them, treat them well (clean them and condition them with Stampin’ Mist, please!) but this thumping technique is a great way to use your stamps with your Stampin’ Write Markers.
I love being about to get a variety of colour on one stamp. This technique works especially well with tree stamps (I think it would be gorgeous with Sheltering Tree or Lovely as a Tree), but I didn’t have any to hand, so I went with flowers instead. I adore this stamp, I love the whole set actually, Petal Potpourri is a great collection of flowers (and a doily) that coordinated with the fabulous Flower Medallion punch.
Select 3 colours of Stampin’ Write Marker – the image above uses Rose Red, Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo, whereas the video uses Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Early Espresso
Make sure your stamp is clean (this is the step I missed! silly me!)
Select your lightest colour first, remove the cap from the brush top of your Stampin’ Write Marker and hold the marker near the cap of the opposite end between your index finger and your thumb.
Bounce (or thump) the side of the brush tip off of the stamp.
Repeat with other colour, misting the stamp with water lightly before stamping onto Whisper White card stock
