Technique Wednesday: Stamping on Patterned PaperPosted by Lisa - Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons on Apr 30, 2013 in Pink by Design Stamps, Stamping, Techniques | 1 comment
Happy Wednesday, everyone! Welcome to another Technique Wednesday. Today, we’re showing you examples of stamping on patterned paper. This technique is perfect for anyone who may want to use image stamps, but they might not feel very confident about coloring in the images. Here are some examples of this technique in action:
Okay…now I want to show you some tips for stamping on patterned paper.
First of all, you want to stamp your image on each color of patterned paper you’d like to use.
Then, trim around the pieces that you want each color to be. Be sure to keep one layer as a base layer (the brown layer for this stamp). That way, you have a base to adhere the other layers to.
Then, after your layers are trimmed, you may notice a not-so-pretty white line around the image. None of us are perfect fussy-cutters, so some white is bound to show. Well, there’s a way to fix that. Just take a black marker or felt-tip pen, and carefully apply it around the edges of your image. It makes the layers look much nicer when they are all adhered together.
