Base and Shade Stamping

Creating dramatic images on your stamped artwork is so easy when you use crystal clear Close To My Heart Base and Shade Stamps.

The Something Special stamp set used to create this card is shown to the left. The flower image is created by stamping one on top of the other using a darker and lighter inks to create depth and texture in the image.
Here's how:

1) Stamp the bottom right flower image using the lighter ink onto your project. I used Close To My Heart's Blush ink.

2) Stamp the top right flower stamp image using the darker ink right on top of the lighter flower image. I used Close To My Heart's Hollyhock ink. It's easy to line up the images because you can see through the crystal clear acrylic block and stamp!

Using a Reverse Mask to Color Line Images

Step 1: Stamp image twice on post it notes or scratch paper.

Step 2: Cut out different parts of each image on the post it notes.

Step 3: Stamp image on your "final project."

Step 4: Cover the "final project" with one of the post-it notes with one part of the image cut out. Using a sponge texture tool, sponge ink on the exposed portion of the image. Remove the post it note.

Step 5: Repeat step 4 for all portions of the image you've cut out. And your final image will be colored perfectly and have a soft "stuffed animal" look.
