Rock and Roll Stamping

Try using this technique to create a look that is lighter in the center and darker on the outside.

To use this technique:

  1. Press your stamp into a light-colored ink pad.
  2. Press only the edges of the stamp in a rolling motion on a darker-colored ink pad. Be careful not to ink the center of the stamp.
  3. Press the stamp firmly on your paper or project. (Do not rock on this part-just push straight down and up.)
  4. Tip: Be sure to use the lighter color first to avoid inking the lighter pad with a darker color.
